where not there during the bust just because there name was on the lease
Yes, they can. I have copied the statute below. However, if the person can show the prosecutor he or she had no knowledge their place was being used for illegal activity, it is possible the state might agree to drop the charges or perhaps modify them to something less serious.See question

Indiana is what is called an "at will" state, which means employers have few limitations on what they can do. Unless your son has a contract that states otherwise, the employer has the legal right to fire or change the terms of employment at will, as long as it is not on the basis of discrimination based on race, religion, etc. Sorry, but that's the way it is.See question
my son was sentenced yestarday , now his attorney said the judge made a mistake , and she just did not correct him. how can they go back on what was documented in court
There are a number of ways to handle this. If the error was simply a mistake, it may be enough for the attorney to contact the court and simply explain the mistake. If the judge agrees he can simply correct the record. If that doesn't work, the attorney can file a Motion to Correct Errors. The motion must be filed within thirty days of the judgement being entered (or you can ask for permission for a late filing). In any case, if it was an significant error that goes against your son's interests, you should definitely try to get it corrected.See question
School ....and if its not resolved can I still get my license back in a year
As far as the warrant is concerned, you can try calling the court yourself and ask that the warrant be withdrawn . Do you know why it was issued in the first place? As far as probation and fines, that will all be a part of whatever plea agreement your attorney works out with and for you. As far as your license is concerned, there are many different considerations. Part of the plea agreement will be the length of suspension. You should also be aware that there is a recent Special Driving Privileges law in Indiana which allows you to drive within certain parameters while suspended. Can't talk about prices here.See question
I'm having an ordeal with my Landlord where someone is entering my home with a key, when I'm not at home. My belongings are disappearing on each incident. I changed the locks myself, but now my landlord is demanding that he receives a copy of my n...
Unfortunately, you do not have the right to put new locks on your doors, as that would prevent access to your apartment as specified in your lease. In Indiana, the Lease is the Law, so look there for answers to any of your questions first. I agree with another attorney who answered your question: an inexpensive security camera or, even better, a home security system would do the trick. I have mine through my internet provider and it is very reasonable, and it includes door and window sensors as well as two cameras and a motion detector. Best of all, if someone comes in while the system is on, it saves video from about ten seconds before to ten seconds after.
Hope this helps.
Non violent felony conviction in the st of Indiana in 1989, served 3 yrs! Finished parole requirements in 1993!
It's pretty simple. You need to file for expungement. Here is a good article explaining the process
This is what the Indiana Courts website says about this process when I looked for forms:
Criminal History – Expungement or Restricted Access
Recent changes to Indiana law allow a person with a certain type of criminal record to seek approval from the court to limit who may have access to view the record, or to expunge it from the individual’s criminal history.
Form packets are not available for this type of complex civil case, as it is advisable that you seek advice from an attorney if you wish to have a record expunged or limited.
I agree; you only get one shot at this, so I would recommend finding an attorney expert in expungements to help you.See question
This person has never received as much as a ticket for anything.
There is a lot of variability to the answer to this question, because in involves many factors, such as; what county was it in? What caused the police to pull him over? How high was his blood alcohol content? what was his behavior and attitude toward the police? How old was he? How did he do on his field sobriety tests? Did the police follow proper procedure? In my experience in south central Indiana, he will be offered something close to the following: one year probation, 90 to 180 day driver's license suspension, alcohol evaluation and treatment as directed, 25-50 hours community service. Some courts require some jail time (usually about 5 days). It also depends if he is over 18 and if the case will be in juvenile or adult court.See question

I can advise you in this case in my role as a licensed paramedic, not my role as an attorney. EMS and police will respond to any report of a threat of suicide. However, as long as your mother is conscious, alert, oriented, and does not show signs she is impaired or not competent to deny treatment, they have no legal standing to force her to go to the hospital. If they do determine she is not competent to refuse and is a threat to herself or others, they may get an order for an involuntary detention, and here each state differs.See question

Although unpleasant from your description I don't see that it is actionable. To sue there needs to ask for relief, that is for the court to order an injunction against the other party from doing something, or damages, which means money. In this kind of case the only damages you could really sue for are from the "intentional infliction of emotional distress," which is difficult to do and would require you to prove financial harm (i.e. as a result of his actions you had to seek treatment in a mental health facility; or it caused PTSD that affected your income, etc.) The bar is very high here. If every jerk were sued for being a jerk, the courts would be even more congested than they already are. I am not being insensitive to your hurt, just being realistic as to your legal chances.See question
I am on probation for a D-felony theft and A-mis. battery what are my chances of not doing prison time ?
Your situation is very much dependent on the prosecutor in the new case and the probation department in the old. A condition of your probation is to not commit any new crimes, which you violated with the new charges. Depending on the terms of probation, you may also have violated probation by consuming alcohol. It is up to the probation department whether they will file (they probably will) a motion to revoke your suspended sentence. Then it is up to the judge, usually with the input of probation and the prosecutor, to decide to 1. revoke the whole suspended sentence, 2. revoke part of the suspended sentence, or 3. either deny the motion or come up with a creative plan, such as house arrest, daily reporting, alcohol and drug treatment, etc. As far as what the prosecutor will ask for on the new charges, it all depends on the prosecutor and the circumstances. The fact that the new offence occurred while you were on probation ain't good. If drugs or alcohol are at the root of your involvement with the criminal justice system, you need to talk with your attorney about options that involve treatment--assuming you are ready and willing.See question
