HAHNVILLE – A sweep of summons for sale of alcohol and tobacco to juveniles poured out of the St. Charles Parish Courthouse on March 20 and March 26, according to the St. Charles Parish Sheriff’s Office.

It resulted in nine summonses for illegal alcohol sales and 13 summonses for illegal tobacco sales to underage persons.

St. Charles Sheriff Greg Champagne said each cashier named was issued a misdemeanor summons to appear in court to answer charges.

“This is an ongoing effort to keep kids from obtaining harmful material from local stores,” Champagne said. “We want the cashiers to get into the habit of checking ID’s before making a sale, and we want them to know that if they don’t there is a good chance we will be watching.”

For illegal sale of alcohol to juveniles, the maximum penalty is a fine of not more than $100 or six months in jail. For illegal sale of tobacco to juveniles, the maximum penalty is $50 for the first violation, $100 for the second violation, $250 for the third violation and $400 for any violation afterward.
