Violations of California liquor license laws can result in a wide variety of consequences which can range from a warning letter to full revocation of the license.
Both aggravating and mitigating factors will be weighed by the Alcoholic Beverage Control board in levying the appropriate fine or suspension, but the ABC will often remain fairly uniform in their actions against licensees for violations. At times, an offer in compromise of a license suspension may be accepted (paying a fine rather than having the license suspended), but there are varying factors which will be considered by the ABC in determining if such an offer will be accepted.
If you find yourself in a situation facing sanctions by the ABC and have questions or concerns, please contact our office at (855) 774-9200.
