Investigations of Sexual Violence Lack Due Process, Put Purdue Students at Risk for Expulsion
Purdue University's process for investigating claims of sexual violence leaves the accused student at a fundamental disadvantage. The student is not permitted to review the accuser's statement or the Investigator's Report. The student is also prohibited from cross-examining or questioning the accuser. When a Purdue student is accused of rape or sexual harassment, it is critical to consult with a criminal defense attorney who has experience serving as an advisor in Purdue Anti-Harassment Police accusations.

Should a Target Testify Before a Grand Jury in Indiana?
If you are the target in an Indiana grand jury proceeding, the State is seeking to indict you on criminal charges. Although it may be tempting to tell your side of the story, targets should not testify at grand juries. The target is subject to questioning by the prosecutor, which provides the State an opportunity to elicit testimony and evidence that could be used against you. A criminal defense attorney can assert your right to remain silent by filing what’s called a “Motion to Quash” on your behalf. With offices in Lafayette and Fort Wayne, our attorneys represent clients statewide. If you are the target of a Grand Jury investigation, call us today at 855-9-GIBSON.

Evidence of Spice, Ecstasy Possession Suppressed: Court Upholds “Right to Walk Away”
In a recent Indianapolis case, the Indiana Court of Appeals upheld that Hoosiers can lawfully walk away from police when officers lack probable cause or reasonable suspicion for criminal activity. The Court determined that police illegally arrested a woman for resisting law enforcement after she lawfully exercised her right to walk away. As a result, evidence gathered during the course of her arrest was ordered suppressed, including alleged spice and Ecstasy found during a pat down. If you've been arrested for possession of marijuana, Ecstasy, or other drugs in the Indianapolis, Franklin, or Shelbyville area, the criminal attorneys at Gibson Law Office can help.

Analyzing the Evidence to Defend False Accusations of Sex Crimes in Indiana
Being falsely accused of a sex crime is typically one of the most stressful and devastating experiences of a person's life. Several years ago, our office represented an 18-year-old college freshman at Purdue University who was accused of rape. After a night of drinking and playing beer pong during Grand Prix weekend, neither he nor the alleged victim could remember what happened when they woke up together partially undressed. During depositions, it was revealed that there was no evidence that sex had occurred. After hearing the evidence at trial, a jury acquitted our client of all charges. Call Gibson Law Office at 855-9-GIBSON if you've been falsely accused of a sex crime in Indiana, including in Lafayette, Crawfordsville, Delphi, and Indianapolis.
