I am 17. I was driving my parents car. I only have my learners permit, it's been a couple months and I drive from school home and back sometimes, so I had some experience. I got caught speeding going a 40 on a 25. I was with a friend and she was also 17 with a learners permit. We were trying to head to church since we were already late, and there rarely was any cars on the road. I haven't told my parents yet. I don't think I have insurance so what would happen? Is there anyway to get out of it, I am a pretty good student and involved with school a lot. This is my first time and i have no clue on what to do.
The fact that you have no insurance is simply another charge that you may face. The fact that you were heading to church, will make no difference. The fact is, you were driving with a learner's permit and there was no adult, licensed driver in the car.
What you need to do first is tell your parents. They are going to find out at some point, and finding out from you is better than the alternatives. Second, get a good criminal defense attorney (that's right, a CRIMINAL defense attorney, because you're charged with a CRIME).
Third, you are not likely to "get out of" this completely. Instead, talk to your attorney about what you should do to minimize the adverse consequences of your actions.
I'm licensed to practice law only in Indiana, and we've never met, so I can't give you "legal" advice. My answer is simply "friendly" advice based on my experience as an attorney in Indiana, my knowledge of federal and common law, and common sense. Even if you are in Indiana, employment law questions are very fact specific, and based on the limited information you provided in your post, I can't give you legal advice, and my answer is intended as general information only. It doesn't create an attorney-client relationship.
