What are the legal consequences of underage drinking in Indiana?

Some people take a very liberal view of underage drinking, chalking it up to a rite of passage most high school or college students experience. Experimenting with alcohol may be relatively common, but that doesn't mean it is a minor concern. Even if the teens involved avoid major mistakes like driving under the influence or getting into fights, there is always the potential for criminal consequences.

What happens if I have to register as a sex offender?

Most people have heard the term “registered sex offender.” A registered sex offender is someone who has been convicted of a sex offense or an offense against a child. After being convicted, the perpetrator's name is included in a database called a sex offender registry. Every state has one, and these are all compiled into the National Sex Offender Public Registry.

I think my underage child is drinking. What should I do?

Your son or daughter is now a college student, and you could not be more proud. Still, you sometimes worry about how they are doing at school. Are they safe? Are they getting enough sleep? And, for some parents, another question arises: Are they drinking while underage?

Indiana University did not violate Title IX, investigation says

The U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Civil Rights recently concluded a two-year-long investigation into Indiana University’s handling of a 2015 sexual assault case. The office’s investigation concluded that the university did not violate Title IX, the statute that regulates how universities must handle sexual assault claims. The department initiated its investigation after a student filed a Title IX complaint alleging that IU authorities had mishandled her rape case.
