This is a form for SSI disability for my son who is 19. My wife was asked a series of questions and she told me that the felony or potential felony question was asked. At the time it did not even come to her mind that our son had attempted this. So when the questions were done she signed the form. She thought a few days later after signing it and now wonders if she did the wrong thing.
What our son did was : He found an aquaintance from his High School, Kennedy Krieger who had graduated from the non-publc school on facebook. (My son is still in High School asn is scheduled to graduate when he is 21.) This person invited him to help with his "business" and my son decided that he did not want this guy to mess other people up. So his plan was to work out a meeting location and then let the police know that this individual was going to be there. Before he set up the actual meeting place I found out what was going on and I told him to stop. I explained the ramifications to him and he became really scared and told the individual that he would not do it and he did not want to mess people up.
