About 12 of us are at prom weekend in NJ, and 11 of us are either 18 or 17 within a few months of the 18th b-day, however one person is 16.
What are the legal liabilities the 18 yr olds have over alcohol consumption/possession in a rented house?
Is it any "more illegal" for the 17/16 yr olds to be drinking?
Is the person who signs the lease/contract for the rental responsible for what goes on, even if they have no idea about it?
Also, if there are no complaints, and everybody is inside the home, can police enter and make arrests?
I would just like all the legal ramifications of what would happen explained so i can make the best case possible for the mix of activities; drinking or not drinking related.
