A word of warning to parents: Underage drinking in your home can be hazardous to your freedom.

Because of the high risk of underage drinking and driving this time of year, many parents open their homes to partying teens as a way to keep them off the roads.

What some parents may not know is that liability laws can leave Mom and Dad open to lawsuits, fines and even jail time if underage drinking is found to be going on under their roof.

Parents can get into legal trouble even if they didn't know about the drinking.
