Hi, Welcome to JustAnswer

My name is XXXXX XXXXX I would be glad to help you, but need a little more information,


Q. Who found it in the parking lot ? The girl who owned the ipod, or your son ?


Thank you

my son did which is unfortunate==also my son came home from school today and said that the principal followed him around everywhere he went today.

It is unfortunate that your son was the person who found it because it makes him look guilty.


If the girl to whom the ipod belonged allowed him to use it, she should admit that. Then, your son must give you and the principal the names of the 4 students who saw him put the ipod back on her folder. If the police are still involved, then you should give the names of the 4 students to the police also, so that the police can question them.


Best of Luck !!!

done that too
The only other thing that I can suggest is that you retain a lawyer who will talk to the witnesses, their parents and also go to the police and ask for the statements given by these witnesses to see what they said and where they were standing when they saw your son put back the ipod. The lawyer might be able to find some inconsistencies in their statements.

the witnesses where sitting right behind her folder on the bleachers in the gym where my son put it down right which was in front of them== but they all have said they did not see him put it there==the police told me that i can not see any statements or any material evidence that they would have just in case it would go to trial==I am looking for a lawyer
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
the principal has also turned a statement that I had said about my son into a lie to the police which I cornered him on in front of the police== could this be a slander issue
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
nothing==issue should have been dropped==but I guess harassment and slander don't mean anything so I will pay you and pursue legal action toward the school officials and the local police== wasted my money==and I'm not even an attorney and figured it out on my own in the first place
