Indiana Criminal Laws

Indiana's criminal statutes identify a wide range of conduct considered illegal, such as theft or murder, made punishable by fines, imprisonment, and other sanctions. Criminal laws and sanctions in Indiana are similar to those of other states, but the Hoosier State is unique in a number of ways, such as its tough mandatory sentences for serious offenses and steep penalties for drug crimes. This section covers a wide variety of Indiana criminal laws, including statutes prohibiting assault and battery, child pornography, domestic violence, and prostitution. If you have additional questions about Indiana criminal laws, or need legal representation, you should speak to a local criminal defense attorney.
