my 16 year old brother was arrested for trying to stab his brother. he is being held in juvenile detention and has been charged with second degree aggravated assault. what can we do to help him? we only called the police because he has never done this before. he has no prior record, excellent school performance and is legitimately a nice kid. i have contacted an attorney - we are in the state of florida. his brother just had a small nick on his hand from their skirmish and is completely fine. i miss my brother so much but i understand why police were called. what are our chances, as the family who contacted law enforcement, of avoiding a felony charge for him?
