Yes. It is unlawful for anyone under the age of 21 years to possess alcoholic beverages in the State of Ohio. This law applies on private property unless the beverage is provided to the under age person by their parent or legal guardian. If your child serves, or allows alcoholic beverages to be served to anyone under age 21 they are opening a “Pandora’s box’ of trouble for which you, as the home owner, will be held responsible. The homeowner can be held criminally and civilly responsible whether they are home or not at the time of the offense.
