really ? I thought supplying to a minor
was pretty black and white.
goodness.... it gets worse..
I hope they all stay away from RL... RL doesn't need Bec culture lowering standards in RL clubs across the country..
Didn't she claim that she had checked her "facts" with City Rail?
she claimed a cityrail employee rang her and confirmed it if memory serves me correctly
sure they did lol
I'm still waiting for LockyNo1's post "it was an isolated incident". That's what the idiot always says about AFL players.
nobody listens to locky
no its illegal to sell and or supply minors with alcohol ( at least in NSW) doesnt matter if your the parent or not , its still illegal.
i run a bottleshop and the amount of parents that come in with their kids and let them pick out what they want is staggering. when they come up to the counter and you ask for ID its always the same line from the parent ' but i'm buying it, not him/her' needless to say they become pretty p*ssed when we refuse the sale.
but the point is that it is illegal to supply a minor with alcohol in NSW.
the law is very clear in this regard the offence for doing so can be $5500. ( i have also had discussions with licensing police about this)
i think that yapa fact sheet is out of date as the laws were ammended in 2000.
but if its the parents alcohol consumed by the child in their own home its fine
Thanks El Diablo. I started searching for something to back up my statement before realising you'd done it for me.
This section precedes that bit, which is understandably why herbert henry1908 is confused:
But herbert henry1908 may be right. It's been a long time since I was told it was legal for an underaged person to consume alcohol in a private dwelling.
my bad , your right that is fine. Its just direct supply that is illegal.
its a very fine line though and the only way someone would ever get caught is if a police officer was present at the sale and heard a minor request alcohol to be bought for him/her.
But if the parent is giving the child alcohol, as is the case with Wilson, even if it wasn't purchased with the intention of doing so, then she is still supplying the child with it. So Wilson must be breaking the law if the info herbert henry1908 gives is correct.
Edit: This article suggests that what Wilson is doing is illegal: http://www.theage.com.au/articles/2003/08/01/1059480560872.html
I can't believe she blatantly lied just to get out of that mess.
It could have been a massive coincidence though:lol:
Imagine if some of the people who post here had her job, her pay, and her access to the game....
There could be some wonderful, insightful, pashionate, even award-winning journalism in the pages of the Tele about this sport, journalism that would sell more papers and internet clicks than Wilson's amateur muck-raking approach any day.
Just for a moment imagine how Chewbacca would "report" said underage drinking if it was..... say a Rugby League named Wilson who supplied alcohol to his daughter.
League Star in underage drunken sex scandal.
High Profile Rugby League Star Reg Wilson is looking at jail time for admitting on National TV that he has provided alcohol to a 15 year old girl.
Several other TV personalities criticised Wilson for the actions however the Dubbo Dropbears Superstar was unrepentant stating that "if he gave the girl a few drinks before she went out, she would be less likely to get drunk when she was out".
Dubbo Dropbears club officials were unavailable for comment on the matter however a source at the club said that many officials at the club would be happy to see the end of Wilson who has a track record for drinking misdemeanours.
It is believed that NSW police are likely to charge Wilson with a string of offences involving the incident with an underage girl.
At least she has her looks.......
Yeh...halloween is picking up over here.
