Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
HelloThis is Samuel and I will discuss this and provide you information in this regard.Unfortunately, no. It did not all need to be done at the same time. The police, obviously, continued to investigate the criminal act of the boys trying to get into unlocked vehicles and have only now come to a conclusion by way of that investigation that there is enough evidence to charge your son, too. Of course, I have no idea what that evidence is. But because the statute of limitations for prosecution of such crimes is 5 years, they are able to bring the charges within the 5 years after the alleged offense occurred.I suggest that you need to at least consider consulting with a local criminal defense attorney and have them accompany your son to be fingerprinted. If you cannot get a local attorney at this time, I suggest your son does not want to participate in any interrogation the police may conduct to have him answer questions in this regard. He should have a local attorney with him while being questioned.

You're welcome. I wish it was better news at this time. But remember, he does not have to talk to anyone about anything with out an attorney. Thanking you in advance for a positive rating.
