let me look on the yellow paper they gave him and see if there's anything on there
ant read it but in the remarks area it says he attempted to trade/sell 2 hard rock like substances as 'crack cocaine'
are you there?
about what he did?
He admitted right away to the principal and the police that he wanted it to look like drugs and was going to try to trade it for tobacco
he said cocaine or crack
where it say offence on here it says: Poss/?/Distri. w/intent imitation controlled substance
is this considered a felony?
he has no $.
he has no record though
since he is 19 they will be expecting HIM to file this and NOT we, the parents?
we don't have any kind of guardianship.
do we do this aff. now? He is mentally 10 yrs. old
he don't understand a bit of this.
will his attorney take into consideration that he don't understand and work according to that? How is he going to explain anything to him and he wilnot be able to understand anything
the court will appiont someone for this matter as guardian seeing he has no one now?
we can't afford an attorney or guardian ship
what is this?
would that be the one for us to use?
I DO NOT want ot be responsible for his actions though. Is this going to effect me and wil I be responsible for the $ if he gets a fine of some sort?
if I had guardinship - will be they be looking at me to pay for an attorney for him?
no, he has no $ at all
so for now should I fild this form and just wait to see if he is charged with something before we can do anything else?
"file" this form
so should I file the guradianship form now or later?
