He was hanging out at his friends house they were drinking and they allowed him to drive home. Thankfully he didnt get hurt just arrested. I want to know if I can hold the parents responsible so that I can get help with the fines.
As far as the civil theory of "social host liability" you would need to contact a civil litigator. He was responsible for his own activity as far as the charge of DUI and the social host liability law does not usually extend into the criminal charge arena. The fact that he was not a minor also negates this theory somewhat. He should talk to an attorney and try to plead this out.
