I read an article by Forbes magazine which claimed that indiana didn't have the ability to tell the difference between hemp and marijuana. Now if they can how easy is it? Would it take a long time and would it be costly to the state
I have seen the language in the lab work from the State "Marijuana THC percent not determined". Hopefully at some point in the future they would be able and/or interested in trying to determine that percentage.
A warrant can be served any time, depending on the seriousness of the offense and if the defendant is considered dangerous or not. If it is just a misdemeanor check mycase.in.gov to see if bond can be posted. Generally the sooner a defendant gets out of the warrant status the better. It is better...Read more »
Please keep in mind that an arrest is not a conviction. Sometimes innocent people get arrested. If you are proven innocent the charges will then be dismissed. Another important issue to keep in mind that you have the right to have an attorney present any time you are questioned by police. If you...Read more »

In Indiana, the state has up to one year to file violations as long as the violation occurred during the term of confinement or probation. You need to carefully read the violation petition to see what it is they are claiming he did to violate his work release conditions.
Again. Now whoever sold the gun to the next guy he got caught with it and he’s a felon. Cops called original owner. He said he sold it to me. Now they want to talk to me but I don’t remember who I sold it to. Am I in trouble? I know it wasn’t the felon I researched his picture.

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.
