A new Indiana state law, known as the Lifeline Law, will soon provide legal immunity to intoxicated minors who help their friends get medical attention. Student leaders from Indiana colleges lobbied for the law, saying the policy could prevent student deaths. The parents of missing student Lauren Spierer have also expressed their support for the policy.
The Lifeline Law will take effect July 1, and this week on Noon Edition, we’ll speak with our panelists about how the law could change the prosecution of underage drinking.
