Parents’ meeting on social host law

Parents can learn about the legal risks of furnishing alcohol to minors in a special presentation at Walpole High School on April 8 at 7 p.m. Lawyers from Norfolk District Attorney Michael W. Morrissey’s office and a private law firm will discuss the potential impact of the state’s Social Host Law, which outlines the criminal penalties for adults who allow underage children to have access to liquor. The program, called “Be a Parent, Not a Pal,” also will address the liability that parents can face from civil lawsuits. Parents of children who plan to attend the school’s prom who attend the meeting can participate in a raffle for two pairs of free prom tickets.
