Can I be held legally responsible for people under age 21 drinking in my house after I'm asleep?
My sons, ages 19 and 20, are home for the summer, but I'm still working and have to get up early. If they have friends over and I check to make sure that no one's drinking but then they start drinking (nothing I've supplied) after I go to bed, can I be held responsible for underage drinking?

If I am granted a PBJ in Maryland for a first time DUI, does the PBJ get reported back to home state of Mass?
I tapped a vehicle pulling out of a parking spot after a few beers and an officer witnessed it and decided it was ground for a breathalyzer. I came in at .09 BAC. Clean record. Never been in trouble. I read online that insurance companies do not find out about PBJ's, so I was curious since PBJ's are not considered convictions would it be reported back to my home state? I have also read online that the interstate myth regarding Massachusetts not finding out about out of state DUI's is a farce due to the new DLC (?). Since Mass. doesn't have a PBJ law, I'm puzzled as to how this would effect me back home dealing with the RMV.
Do not go into this case with a pbj attitude . Low breath test cases are defensible in some circumstances. Md will...
