In 2012, the Indiana legislature changed the public intoxication law so that it is no longer a crime to be (peacefully) drunk in public. #3 of our top blogs for college students explains Indiana law regarding crimes of public intoxication and minor consumption, as well as our attorneys' approach to obtaining the best possible result in these cases.

Best of luck to all of the IPFW, Notre Dame, and Ball State students who start a new school year this week! During the first week of classes, we're posting our top 5 blogs with information college students should know about Indiana criminal law. Today we're looking at how a roommate's marijuana can result in your arrest – and how our attorneys may be able to use the theory of constructive possession to attack the State's evidence against you.

When petitioning for specialized driving privileges, it's important to retain an experienced attorney who will help you prepare for the hearing. This could include gathering information regarding your criminal history, employment status, work address, and typical schedule. It could also include paying reinstatement fees or completing a driver safety program prior to the date of the hearing.

Our Fort Wayne attorneys will walk you through the process as well as the questions you may be asked so you know exactly what to expect when you come to court. Call 260-739-5425 for a free initial consultation for your case in Auburn, Warsaw, or Wabash: http://www.bbgibson.com/Practice-Areas/Specialized-Driving-Privileges.

Convicted of a Class D or Level 6 felony in Fort Wayne? Indiana law requires you to wait 8 years before you can petition for expungement. However, when clients call our office about expunging these low-level felonies, we will first seek to determine if they are potentially eligible for misdemeanor treatment.

A successful petition for misdemeanor treatment will reduce the felony conviction to a Class A misdemeanor. It will also reduce the waiting period for expungement from 8 years to 5. Call our Fort Wayne attorneys to find out what options are available in your case: http://www.bbgibson.com/Practice-Areas/Expungement.

When it comes to driving, do you know what having a small hole in your tail light and drifting back and forth within your own lane have in common? They are both invalid reasons for police to pull you over. Our attorneys will review your police report and file a Motion to Suppress the evidence if the justification for the traffic stop may be contrary to Indiana law: http://www.bbgibson.com/Practice-Areas/Criminal-Defense.

If you are the target in a grand jury proceeding and receive a subpoena to testify, you should resist the urge to tell your side of the story. The best way to protect yourself is by immediately contacting a criminal defense attorney. An attorney can assert your right to remain silent by filing a "Motion to Quash".

Call 260-739-5425 to speak with a criminal defense attorney in our Fort Wayne office for cases involving grand jury investigations in the Auburn, Albion, and Columbia City area.
