    Andrea's MP3 N/A N/A


    Prom night – nothing could be more exciting, right? My best friend and I had spent hours looking for dresses and doing our hair. It was perfect. We had been waiting for this night since both of us could remember and nothing was going to ruin it. My best friend called me the night before and told me that her parents had to go on an emergency trip to see her dying grandmother. It was a really sad story but what interested us was that she was planning on throwing a huge prom party at her house.

    That night after we got our pictures and dinner, my date and I headed over to her house. I couldn’t believe how many people had shown up! Everyone was there and everyone was having a great time! People were drinking and dancing and everything was awesome. I decided to spend the night over there so that I could help clean up the next day.

    Her parents got home the next morning at about the same time the police arrived. It turns out that someone who had been at the party had gotten into an accident and was intoxicated. The police asked where they got the alcohol and they pointed at my friend’s house. The police were very nice and explained to all of us that adults can be charged with a Class 1 misdemeanor if they knowingly allow minors to drink on their property (ARS 4-241.H.) Fortunately her parents didn’t know anything about the party or the alcohol! But police also told us that there is still a chance that through their homeowner’s insurance, her parents might get sued (be held civilly liable) because someone got hurt as a result of the party.

    i think it was the drunk drivers fault thar someone got hurt. i think the courts need someone to blame and can't find the person responsibile so they blame all of you.i fell that if you did not force anyone to drink alcohol and then make them drive home drunk than your not responsible. I think people need to learn true justice and stop blaming just anyone for their lost.(not that i not sorry that they have lost)

    You said "they" pointed at your friends house...who is they? Did people stay over that night? I say that party was a bad idea considering your friends parents would be home the next morning. Tell your friend he/she needs to use their head next time.

    I UNDERSTAND THE LAW ALTHOUGH I DON'T AGREE WITH IT, SOMEONE HAS TO BE BLAME FOR THE CHILDREN'S IRRESPONSIABLE BEHAVIOR. EVEN IF THEY WERE ABLE TO SUE THE KIDS IT WOULD OF STILL COME OUT THE PARENTS POCKET.
