Thank you for choosing Just Answer. I am sorry to hear of your situation.
You need to be prepared for the hearing. It would be useful to get a document from the school indicating his satisfactory attendance and grades. This should be on the school letterhead and from the principal if possible. If the school has already printed the graduation ceremony programs with your son's name on it this would also be useful to bring with you to the school.
With respect to disturbing the peace since your son plead to the charge you may have some difficulty getting around this. You need to be prepared to discuss what happened and how your son was involved. You will need to show he was not a willing participant, or somehow was in the wrong place at the wrong time.
whats your thoughts on this i did write a letter stating facts on grades and what hapend with the ticket and he is taken the letter to school and having his teachers read and if agree they will sign at bottom i also email the few teachers that his grade went down but came back up with and they emailed me back that his grade has came back up and said tell him to keep up the good work i printed them and will take to court with me is this what your talkin about ?? and thank you for helping me its tough im a single father raisen 3 teens
The letters from the teachers will probably have much more weight, then your letter. You should make sure that the documents also include a staement that the attendance as school has been as required. If your son is set for graduation the court can infer that his grades are satisfactory. A statement from the principal indicating your son is on track graduate would be very helpful.
You should keep in mind that the judge may not accept the documents since they do not reflect an official school record. However, you can still indiocate that you nhave statements from the teachers indicating your son's grades are satisfactory.
One other point is that as a non attorney you cannot represent your son in these proceedings. You can only offer testimoney or statements on your son's behalf.
