No. 960308-CA.

933 P.2d 400 (1997)

STATE of Utah, Plaintiff and Appellee, v. Joann VALDEZ, Defendant and Appellant.

Court of Appeals of Utah.

February 21, 1997.

Attorney(s) appearing for the Case

Rosalie M. Reilly, Monticello, for Defendant and Appellant.

William L. Benge, Grand County Attorney, Moab, for Plaintiff and Appellee.

Before WILKINS, Associate P.J., and BILLINGS and JACKSON, JJ.



Joann Valdez appeals her conviction of knowingly providing alcohol to a minor, a class A misdemeanor, in violation of Utah Code Ann. § 32A-12-203(2) (Supp.1996). She claims the trial court erred in holding that this statutory offense does not require the server of alcohol to have knowledge that the person served is a minor. We agree and therefore vacate defendant's conviction and reverse and remand for a new trial.
