In an upscale neighborhood, a woman was found guilty of a misdemeanor charge of violating the Alabama open house party law after a judge ruled that she held a party at her residence in which minors had beer and alcohol.
The “open house” was attended by 44 minors, some as young as age 15. Over half were holding beer cans. Beer cans were on the air hockey table, and in the trash cans around the basement. Also, hard liquor was present.
A Hoover Municipal Court Judge ordered her to pay a $250 fine plus $191 in court costs.
