I was recently involved with a "sting" at the liquor store that I work for. I sold a 6 pack of beer to an underage buyer after asking him for id. He said that he didn't have his id with him and I trusted him to be 21 (bad idea!). I was told by the police that I am going to be charged with a gross misdemeanor. I have nothing else on my record and am a very reliable college graduate. Have any of you had experience with these alcohol compliance checks and do you think the gross misdemeanor could be dropped down to a petty or regular misdemeanor given all the other circumstances?
