While students may have friends that that want to give “legal” advice, criminal charges can carry long-run consequences.

Jasper County, Indiana Possession of Cocaine Conviction Reversed
The Indiana Court of Appeals reversed a Lafayette, Indiana man’s conviction for possession of cocaine in Jasper County. The defendant had been stopped for speeding on I-65 near Rensselaer. Police searched his car after issuing the speeding ticket and found 66 grams of cocaine. However, his conviction was reversed because police lacked reasonable suspicion of criminal activity to detain the defendant’s vehicle for a canine unit to arrive. Drug charges in Jasper County, White County, and Tippecanoe County for possession of cocaine, heroin, and marijuana often originate from an infraction traffic stop.
