My 17 year old son is charged with Wisconsin Statute 125.07(4)(a)(1) which reads: PROCURES OR ATTEMPTS TO PROCURE ALCOHOL BEVERAGES FROM A LICENSEE OR PERMITTEE. In my language, I believe this means, (please correct me if I'm wrong). A licensee is an establishment that sells alcohol beverages. A permittee is a licensed person who is permitted to sell alcohol on the licensee's establishment. The fact is the alcohol was picked up at a friends house. This was no retail/business establishment. The authorities know that also. My son and his minor friend are both getting charged with this. Since the place of pickup was not as the statute states, is the citation valid? We have discussed this with many people and they claim it isn't. Is it just a concocted charge so the boys learn a lesson? They definitely have whether the charges are valid or not. Could someone please give us their opinions? Do read something we are overlooking? Thanks.
