How can I be charged with Furnishing Alcohol to Minors when I am underage myself?

Some people believe that since an underage person cannot lawfully purchase or possess alcohol, then an underage person cannot be charged with Furnishing Alcohol to a Minor. This issue was resolved by the court in the case of Commonwealth v. Lawson, which originated as a Centre County case involving a Penn State student. In the case, the Centre County defense attorney argued that since an underage person generally cannot be held civilly liable for furnishing alcohol to a minor, then the underage person should also not be held criminally responsible for furnishing alcohol to a minor. The Superior Court rejected the argument of the Centre County defense attorney and noted that the Furnishing Alcohol to a Minor law prohibited a "person" from furnishing alcohol, and a "person" would include an underage person. Therefore, an underage person can be charged with Furnishing Alcohol to a Minor.
