We called 911 for our unconscious son. (good samaritan law).

Customer Question
We called 911 for...

We called 911 for our unconscious son. (good samaritan law). They searched him for drugs and found none. He was admitted to the hospital. In the ER he was out of his mind. They searched him for drugs. Let him go to the bathroom. Searched him again, found nothing. He managed to get xanax into the mental health ward. He was xx at the time. A xx year old girl who was also a patient was the "welcome Person"  showed him around. A grown man who is out of his mind. He told 3 girls he had this drug and the "welcome" girl asked for some. Jordan gave her some. The hospital workers could not wake her in the morning. She went to the ICU, her mother was called

Lawyer's Assistant: In what state did this occur?

In Illinois. She was fine. The mother sued the hospital. We hear nothing about it for a few months. Then detectives came to the door asking what happened. We told them, we had nothing to hide. The next day he was accused of possession.

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?

We have half hearty tried, but no help.

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

We hired a criminal lawyer. Jordan completed task probation for 2 and a half years successfully so the felony was vacated. He has graduated college with a degree in finance and can't get a job because a background check shows a felony even though it has been vacated. The hospital changed all their pollicies (I can't spell) right after this happened. The mother of the girl did not come after us because the girl admitted that she asked for it and that Jordan was out of his mind.

He may be eligible to have his record expunged or sealed.

The Felony was vacated. Wasn't the hospital at fault for not finding the drug? What about the good samaritan law?
