Indiana Lifeline Law - Did you know?
Wanted to be sure you are aware of the Indiana Lifeline Law......particularly if you have teens/young adults.
The Indiana Lifeline Law provides immunity for the crimes of public intoxication, minor possession, minor consumption and minor transportation alcohol to persons who reveal themselves to law enforcement while seeking medical assistance for a person suffering fro an alcohol-related health emergency.
In order to receive immunity, the person must demonstrate that they are acting in good faith by completing ALL the following:
1. Providing full name and other relevant info requested by law enforcement
2. Remaining on the scene until law enforcement and emergency medical assistance arrives
3. Cooperating with authorities on the scene
The law will no interfere with law enforcement procedures or limit the ability to prosecute for other criminal offenses such as providing to a minor, operating while intoxicated, or possession of a controlled substance.
Doing the right thing has often been overshadowed by fear.
