My wife and hosted a birthday party for 13 year old daughter and a few of her friends and adults. Some of the adults had a few beers in the garage and the kids were in the house with my wife and some adult family members serving food and having the Birthday cake. A few days later, a minor attending, upon questioning by her mom, said that we supplied alcohol to the minors there and my wife and I were charged (this was in IL) with contributing to delinquency of a minor for providing alcohol to minors. We did not! The minor said she was given Blue Moon alcohol, except we didn't have that even in the garage or house! How do we defend ourselves?
