1. My son doesn't remember what he said other than he left our house and he told them that we were looking for him.
2. He doesn't remember much about what they said.
3. My son said the police filled out the form for him.
Call the Family Court, give the Number on the Form, tell them your son is pleading Not Guilty and ask for a Court hearing date.
The penalty is in the discretion of the Judge and the judge realizes the penalty is is very high; On the books, the law states that the penalty rangesfrom a fine of between $100 and $500 and 90 days in jail to performing 40 hours of community service.
In the cases I researched for you a first time offender breaking curfew has gotten a strong reprimand and ordered to perform between 20 and 40 Hours of community service in some cases, the Judge extended the time that the minor remained with a restricted license.
Take with you to Court: Bring letters from his teachers, any athletic coaches, etc. attesting to his upstanding character. He should be fine!
