Indiana's Lifeline Law provides immunity for the crimes of public intoxication, minor possession, minor consumption, and minor transport to people who seek medical assistance for a person suffering from an alcohol-related health emergency. The law was recently extended to also provide those immunities to people reporting sexual assaults. People must provide their full names and other information requested by law-enforcement officers, remain on-scene until assistance arrives, and cooperate with authorities at the scene.
The Indiana Lifeline law applies not just to those who call 911, but those who text it as well. Calling 911 is still preferred, but if texting, students should include their location first, then as much detail about the incident as possible.
