WASHINGTON (WUSA) -- Richard Kim, the owner of Town Square Market in Northwest Washington D.C., will face an ABRA (Alcoholic Beverage Regulation Administration) hearing/trial on July 25th, reports 9News Now's Andrea McCarren. We learned that Kim and ANC couldn't reach resolution.
In May, a D.C. Superior Court judge found Richard Kim guilty of selling alcohol to a minor. Judge Elizabeth Wingo said Kim "should have known this was an underage person" and should not have sold beer and vodka to the teenager in February.
A 17-year-old high school junior from McLean, Virginia testified that on February 18th, he bought 30 containers of beer and a bottle of blueberry vodka at Town Square Market. The teen said he used an expired Pennsylvania driver's license belonging to a 22-year-old acquaintance whose photo was on the ID. Minutes later, police arrested the teenager along with store owner Kim.
Andrea McCarren will have more information on the ABRA hearing tonight at 5 p.m.
