Guest Commentary: Underage drinking laws as they stand

Wilton Bulletin (Wilton, CT) March 15, 2012

"With recent events published regarding underage drinking and warmer weather just around the corner, it is timely to address the laws as they presently stand in Connecticut regarding underage drinking. What I hope to accomplish is to educate the community on what the police can and cannot do regarding this topic pursuant to law.
