I got charged with 53 counts of selling alcohol without a license. I hosted a party and was selling beer cups. I checked everyone's ID. Cops came to party, counted number of people with cups, and charged me. Is what I did even illegal? I think they just don't like the frat scene.

    Answered . You should fight the charges. You are in a gray area as to the sale of the cups rather than the beer, but a good fight could result I the prosecutors choosing not to pursue it or offering a good deal.
