Thank you for using JustAnswer. I am Loren, a licensed attorney, and I will do whatever I can to answer your question and provide excellent service.
I am sorry to hear of your dilemma. I realize how frustrating this is for you and I hope to provide you information which is accurate and useful, even though it may not be the news you were hoping to get.
The US Supreme Court has held that juveniles
may be questioned by police without their parents being present. That does not, however, give license to the police to assault your granddaughter or make false testimony
Your first priority, at this time, must be to aggressively defend her against the criminal charges. After those charges are resolved in her favor her parents can bring a civil rights
claim against the police and the school, if she was assaulted by the police on school property.
You can also bring a complaint to the internal investigation dept of the ISD.
It is my privilege to assist you. Let me know if you need further information. I hope I have helped you feel informed and empowered in the service I have provided to you. I am here for you.
Since this forum is no substitute for your own legal counsel, you may want to verify the information I have provided with a local attorney who is familiar with your local laws and procedures.
I am happy to answer your follow-up questions and assist you until I am able to explain the answer to your satisfaction.
