ABC License Violation

With Identity theft and the false ID availability, the liquor industry retailers are facing many more challenges than they had in past. Numerous identity theft specialists, are selling false ID's to the underage, whose sole goal is to purchase spirits, without thinking of the negative ramifications of their actions; even though you are a business owner or operator, you are jeopardized by these children's acts, some of whom do and can look older than they are; thus you may be facing ABC license violation and criminal charges. A lot of times these irresponsible acts, by the users of false ID's may indirectly cause you to lose your license to operate your business.

Has a violation been reported on your ABC license? Is your operation in jeopardy? Is there threat of loose of your ABC license or suspension?

Victory Some of the cases I resolved:

- Client was losing his license due to cashing food stamps without required authorizations, after prolonged meditations with authorities involved he was able to keep his licence.

- Client's clerk sold alcoholic beverage to undercover officer disguised as intoxicated customer, the store was facing criminal charges and loss of ABC license. With my help the license was kept, charges were minimized to very small fine.

Some ABC violations can be files as serious crime.

Penal Code section 836 provides that a peace officer may arrest a person with a warrant or without a warrant when he has probable cause to believe a public offense was committed in his presence. In Mercer v. DMV (1991) 53 Cal.3d 753, the California Supreme Court held that the “presence” requirement in Penal Code section 836 applies to drunk driving misdemeanors and that proof of “driving” in the presence of the arresting officer requires *proof that the arresting officer witnessed volitional moment of the vehicle by the defendant.
