HelloMy name is XXXXX XXXXX X look forward to discussing this and providing you information in this regard.Please clarify for me 1 - who arrested him?2 - there is no court date, yet so the information you are given on penalty was from whom?3 - were both boys charged?
The arresting officer's name isXXXXX Rawls gave out this information...I was present in the meeting as I went to pick up the boy because his mother is a domestic worker and could not get off. Both boys were charged. I heard the officer make a call and he reported the arrest of two boys and he gave the names.
Does a "no tolerance" policy have any legal credence?
Is it possible that the 17 yr. old neighbor boy can be considered an adult in this school situation if Louisiana recognizes 18 as the legal age?
Is there a website that you could recommend where I can find the law that Officer Rawls referred to?
