Governor signs bill to stiffen penalties on beer sales

Updated:
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- Governor Brad Henry inks a bill to stiffen penalties for selling beer to minors.

The measure -- passed Monday -- would allow fines of up to $5,000 and five years in prison for servers caught repeatedly selling beer to anyone under 21, the legal drinking age in Oklahoma.

It would also suspend a business' permit to sell beer if the company repeatedly sells beer to minors.

Teenagers caught illegally purchasing beer could also face a fine of up to $900 and the loss of their driver's license for up to two years.
