My 15 yr old son, was with a group of boys at a park in Indiana.
The boys were questioned by police, about a table that was burned on top. One of the boys owned up to doing it. Next thing I know, I get a call from a probate officer sayinghme and my son need to report to ? Place to plead guilty and bring $$ for restitution. My son was not at fault, and received No citation, summons, etc.
What happens if he doesnt show up? They are talking about probation, and stuff...??
For WHAT? He is supposed to return home to Louisiana this week. What are my options, or what can they do?
They can issue a warrant even though he hadnt been charged. He wasn't given a citation, or summons.?
ANd if so, can they come to Louisiana and get him?
