Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hello and thank you for contacting us. This is Dwayne B. and I’m an expert here and looking forward to assisting you today. If at any point any of my answers aren’t clear please don’t hesitate to ask for clarification. Also, I can only answer the questions you specifically ask and based on the facts that you give so please be sure that you ask the questions you want to ask and provide all necessary facts. Further, if you get a message asking if you want to do additional services like a telephone call that message is automatically generated by the website and is not sent from me. I, like most of the experts in the Legal categories, do not do telephone calls due to issues with State Bar rules and other concerns.
It depends on what you mean by "violate her rights" since there really isn't a legal definition for that term.
Schools are allowed, under the law, to question students without their parents being present. They are also allowed to call the police without first notifying the parent. It doesn't mean that her statements, if she gave any, would be admissible in court since the standard for admissibility is different than the standard just for questioning.
If you have follow up questions please ask them in this thread.
Yes and no. There is no law that says a parent must be present when a minor is questioned. However, that can affect whether or not the statements is admissible in court at a later time as I referenced above.
It is no different than a person requesting their lawyer being present when they are questioned. The police can proceed with the questioning but anything the person says is likely to be struck by a court.
