Man Charged For Giving Alcohol To Minors Involved In Deadly Collision

Hand CuffsA drunk driving car accident in Raleigh left one teen dead, another teen facing multiple criminal charges, and charges against the man who provided the alcohol that caused the wreck.

The accident occurred when 16 year old Garrett Prince rounded a curve in a residential neighborhood at a speed of 75mph and lost control of the vehicle, crashing into a tree. His 17 year old passenger, Elizabeth Molloy, died as the result of this crash. Neither Prince nor Garrett were wearing seatbelts.

Our North Carolina drunk driving car accident lawyers have learned that Prince has been charged with Felony Death by Motor Vehicle, Possession of Marijuana, Open Container of Alcohol, Driving While Impaired, and Driving After Consuming Alcohol While Anderage.

Also charged in connection with this fatal accident is Anthony Du Juan Geter, who has been charged with three counts of Aiding and Abetting Persons Under 21 in Possessing or Purchasing Alcohol. Police report that Geter supplied Prince, Molloy and 2 other teens with two (2) 1.75 liter bottles of rum. North Carolina Alcohol Law Enforcement agents are considering more charges.

According to US Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, most teens who consume alcohol get it for free. The study found that only 6.5% of underage drinkers got their alcohol from a store. The rest stole it from their homes, or got it from family members, other underage teens, or non-related adult. Nearly 15% of teens admitted to sneaking alcohol from the parents home, almost 16% had the alcohol given to them by a parent and 14% received the alcohol from another family member.

Many parents who provide their teens with alcohol believe that it their teen is going to drink, that it would be safer for them to drink at home. But it is still illegal, and if their teen, or a teen they allow to drink, gets hurt or hurts someone else, that parent is responsible, both criminally and civilly. Even if the parent does not supply alcohol but is aware that there is underage drinking going on in their home, they will be held responsible.
