Considering a Prom After-Party or a Graduation Party? 

Social Hosting Laws in Massachusetts 

As an adult, if you provide alcohol to children under the age of 21, the consequences can be severe.  Here are a few facts adults should know:

  • If you provide alcohol to underage drinkers who are not your children or grandchildren, or allow them to drink in your home, you may be criminally prosecuted and face a fine of up to $2,000, imprisonment for up to one year, or both.
  • You may also be sued, and a jury may decide whether you are civilly liable and how much you will have to pay for injuries caused by your guests.
  • You could be prosecuted criminally and sued civilly if you knowingly allow a person under 21 to drink at your home, and he becomes very ill or dies from alcohol poisoning or other injuries.
  • You could be civilly liable if you give permission for your underage child to drink in someone else's home, and he injures or kills a third party.
  • If a judgment is lodged against you as a "social host," your homeowner's insurance may cover you, but most likely will not be enough to pay the judgment. If you are also charged criminally, then it is possible your policy will not cover the civil judgment.
