Its a Juvenile Citation.
The officer told him that he will be on probation and the ticket is from the Juvenile division santa clara county probation department. It also says "This is a citation for the above named minor and a parent to appear, as promised, at the Santa Clara county probation department when notified. The probation department will notify you of the date, time and place where you are to appear." Does this information help to get more clarity on the consequences.
Thanks for your response. What does PC 272x15 mean?
One more question. Should we wait to recieve the notification from the probation department and then decide if we should engage a lawyer or should we proactively engage a lawyer to handle the case? Also what does the x15 mean in the code 272x15.
You mentioned earlier that the matter may get dismissed, so want to understand why it would be beneficial to engage a attorney now.
Thank You for the advise. We will do it.
