Alex has just turned 21 and a group of people want to take them out and show them what it means to become an “adult”! They don't drink but don't want to let their friends down especially since they are doing something nice for them. They have asked you to make sure it doesn’t get out of hand when someone in the group starts ordering shots for them saying, “This is gonna be fun to watch.”

Scenario: Sexual Assault

You are at a party. During the past hour you notice Jordan has been talking to Alex. They seem to be having a good time but it is clear that Alex has had too much to drink. At one point you hear Jordan say "I am going to get them one more" and "that should be enough." A few minutes later you see Jordan start to lead Alex upstairs.
