My son is 22 yrs old and in the Army. He is currently stationed in Colorado and is home for Christmas holidays (in Georgia) with his wife and newborn baby. His wife, Victoria, is 20 yrs old. When she was 17 she was caught shoplifting
makeup at a Walmart. She was charged with Shoplifting under $100.
Her parents did not think it necessary to have legal representation
, so she received fines, community service, three different classes she had to take and probation
. Her fines were paid, she went to the classes. However, she did not do any community service and married and moved out of state with my son.
Last night they were pulled over initially for no tag light. The officers asked for her ID and it came back that she had a warrant for violation of probation
. They are saying we cannot bond her out and she must go before the judge which will be Wednesday at earliest. They are due back in Colorado Tuesday and my son cannot take care of their baby by himself as he is in the Army and has to work.
I have tried all day to get in touch with an attorney but its New Years Day and tomorrow is a Federal Holiday. Is there anything more I can do and what should we expect to happen? We are all in shock for something that was less than $20 in cost that was stolen when she was a teenager. I have to go back to work Tuesday and we have no idea what to do with the baby... Thanks in advance.
