I was ordered into a mental facility by involuntary commitment. My cellphone was used to obtain messages I did not send indicating I was going to commit suicide. My ex admitted to putting them on phone and calling police and reporting I overdosed. Lab records showed neg. for opiates. I was detained 72 for no just cause. I need to get this expunged from my record. I reside in Indiana.
