Spokane businesses caught selling booze to minors

SPOKANE, Wash. - 8 Spokane businesses are in trouble with the Washington State Liquor Control Board after getting caught selling alcohol to minors.

Out of 16 businesses checked, 8 of them received Administrative Violation Notices for sale/service of alcohol to a minor after they sold alcohol to investigative aides working with WSLCB enforcement officers. Aides are individuals from 18 to 20 years old who must present their true identification if asked by a clerk. However, they may attempt to be evasive if asked their age but not asked for identification.

The compliance checks occurred on April 7th. Businesses include spirits, beer and wine restaurants, grocery stores, state and contract liquor stores, neighborhood markets, taverns, wine bars and sports/entertainment facilities.

Fines or temporary license suspensions can be issued depending on the severity of the infraction or the frequency with which a business has been cited. Clerks who sell can also receive a criminal citation. Liquor enforcement officers review the past two years when determining fines or license suspensions.
