Elder Abuse Bill Introduced In Indiana Senate

(INDIANAPOLIS) – A bill was introduced Monday in the Indiana General Assembly that would create an “elder abuse registry” of those convicted of crimes against senior citizens and those who are mentally or physically challenged.

Republican State Senator Randy Head of Logansport says his bill would be like the state’s sex offender registry and would track those who are convicted of physical abuse or stealing money from an “endangered adult.”
The bill says the registry would be available on a public web site and maintained by the Indiana Office of Judicial Administration.
