NC Man Faces Alcohol Charges After Teen's Death

A Raleigh man has been charged with buying alcohol for teenagers who were later involved in a car wreck that killed a 17-year-old girl.

Special agents with North Carolina Alcohol Law Enforcement say they arrested 21-year-old Anthony Du Juan Geter Friday night and charged him with multiple counts of purchasing alcohol for minors.

They say Geter bought flavored rum from a Wake County ABC store for two teens who were involved in a single-car wreck shortly after. A 17-year-old high school student, Elizabeth Malloy, was killed in the Jan. 7 crash.

Geter was released on a $4,000 bond. A telephone listing could not be found for him Saturday, and it wasn't immediately clear if he has a lawyer.

Investigators say they expect to file more changes in the case.

    It is against the law to buy children alcohol...period. Anyone who buys children alcohol should be charged for their crime. Fortunately, it is not often that children lose their lives because someone gave them alcohol so it is difficult to enforce the law.

    First of all dont drink and drive and noone forced these 2 teenagers to drink. Each person is responsible for their own actions.

    I get it, "just asking" must be one of those family member defender/offenders from the story about the marines that killed that guy. Here's another assumption for you.

    Why don't you go monitor some other site, or you could put in an application for a job as a site monitor, otherwise talk to the hand.

    This person should have to work in a morgue (without pay) for the rest of his life especially on "KIDS" that have been killed by a drunk driver. Also shold have to stand on the street where this perosns life was taken away holdind a sign reading " |I killed a 17 year old girl because I am STUPID" People like this makes the jobs of employees of ABC stores more difficult. May he never have a peaceful night sleep again.

    My heart goes out to the girl's family. This man should not have purchased alcohol for these minors regardless of the situation; however, you've got to put some of the blame on the counties here in Eastern NC. There isn't a whole lot for teenagers to do here at all and it's sad. They're permitted to be in clubs at 18 years old and although they aren't old enough to drink in these clubs, they find ways to do it. Maybe all of our communities need to find alternatives for these kids to keep them occupied. Half of the stores around here will sell cigarettes and alcohol to minors just to get the sales. It's a very sad area we live in.

      I work in an ABC Store and we ID people daily, it is not our fault that there are STUPID people in this world that will buy and or give liquor to underage kids. We have kids that have just turned 21 and they know wat they want when they enter the store, I have asked how they knew what they wanted and they have replies, "my girlfriend mother gave it to me and it was good" What does this say for the ADUKTS in todays world that are giving liquor/beer to underage drinkers

      And now it isn't just the parents fault, the guy who bought the alcohol, BUT the COUNTIES fault because there isn't anywhere for teenagers to go! Wow, so I guess this guys parents also have a great lawsuit because of that huh? Who else can we come up with to blame for this guy drinking and getting into a vehicle and driving? Certainly not him. Everyone else. I'm scared to leave my name because I might get sued to......get a grip....

    thats whats wrong with the world these days. everybody wants to blame everybody except the person responsible. the teenagers wanted the alcohol. they would of got it one way or another. it would be the same as blaming the alcohol manufacturer. sorry about the teen dying but it was their choice. blame them..

    These foreign people running stores have one thing in mind.Profit. in their country.pay offs are a way of life.the $250 fine for selling beer,cigarettes to minors is just the cost of doing business.A store near me has been caught several times.A 6 pack of beer is $20 to a minor(The cost of doing business to the Alcohol,tobacco&firearms people)next customer.

    I've been to thousands of stores in my life time I have witness this kinda of thing. These people will buy it for u for cigarettes beer or money. So 40some has a point. Knowing these kids today that boy didn't to it for nothing he got something out of the deal.it was wrong to rat the 21yr old out he should have told them he found the beer.

      He is guilty of getting it for the minor; however, if the guy was of age, then there would be no issue here. Everyone is just looking for one more person to add to the lynching as usual. If this were an arsonist, then the store would be somehow responsible for selling the gas and container. If it were a minor smoking, the lets find and put in jail, who gave him the cigarette. If its a kid who killed someone, lets put the parent or whoever gave them gun in jail and make them do alot of time. So when do we actually hold the person accountable that did it? Naw, lets see who else we can blame....cause of course, the minor couldn't have made this poor decision on his own without any help. Someone "put" this in his hand and made him do it!! Whether it be alcohol, a gun, etc. He was just a poor victim and it is everyone else's fault who helped him....sigh....the guy messed up. I don't think he should be hung for it, but I also don't see the point of the lynch crowd trying to get everyone else either. Find an appropriate penalty for this and move on.
