When I was 17 I got into a car accident in Indiana. It was a friend's car. I was found at fault for the accident. I had an unsat judgement against me in 2007 and it expired 2014. Due to severe anxiety I just never tried to get my license again and over time forgot about the judgement. Now that... Read more »
If the suspension ended in 2014 then there should be no reason it would prevent you getting a license. However, there may be a reinstatement fee. Also, there could be other reasons preventing you from getting a valid license. If you do not have a myBMV account, set one up and look at your...Read more »
You would be responsible to pay the ticket since you were the one who committed the infraction. However, the company would have to send proof to the BMV on your behalf to show the vehicle was insured. If you pay the ticket, it will put points on your record and could cause your own insurance...Read more »
It depends on the person's status with the BMV. IF they are suspended-infraction, then they will continue to get tickets and not criminally charged. Though, if they plead to one of the DWS tickets, the status will change to DWS-prior and the person could be arrested and criminally charged.
There is not enough information to answer your question accurately. If you have a myBMV account, print off a copy of your driving record and schedule an appointment with a criminal defense attorney who can look at your record to determine what can be done. Depending on the circumstances the HTV...Read more »
This has been happening for years and no one in the community will do anything about it. Not DCS, not the police, not the school... the boy has obvious mental problems and is seriously violent and sexually aggressive. How is this ok for everyone to ignore this problem??
I can't find work because employers pull up the charge on a background check even though it was dismissed. Even with dismissal, the charge still looks ugly to potential employers and now I'm suffering financially.
In Indiana an employer can choose to not hire or to fire for any reason as long as it is not for a constitutionally protected reason. Your situation does not fit a constitutionally protected class. However, if the case was dismissed you should consider an expungement. This will seal the case and...Read more »

There are statutory protections for those that help others who are overdosing. However, if there are facts/events that do not fall within the statutory protections, it may be possible for you to be prosecuted. You should consult with a criminal defense attorney.
There is no difference between a vehicle nor a home if the felon is in possession of a gun. However, the State will need to still prove the felon possessed the gun. Being in the presence of a firearm is insufficient if someone else is possessing the firearm.
If the alleged offense is a misdemeanor, the State has 2 years to file charges, if the offense is a felony, the State has 5 years to file charges. So yes, he could be 18 when he is charged and arrested. However, since he was 17 at the time of the alleged offense even if he is 18 or older the...Read more »
It will depend on the facts and what the charges are in the new case.

You should not talk to anyone other than an attorney about the situation; anything you say can be used against you. You should try and hire an attorney, most have payment plans. If you cannot afford an attorney and are charged then request a public defender.
