My son and I went to court first time today and I chose to

My son and I went to court for the first time today and I chose to accept court appointed legal counsel. I was familiar with the lawyer's name, but when looking him up online, I don't see any information and experience specifically pertaining to juvenile law. He is predominantly a criminal lawyer. First of all, am I able to get my own private attorney instead of him? Also, is it necessary to have a lawyer that is versed in juvenile law specifically? My son has never been in trouble for anything and is being charged with unlawful possession of a controlled substance. The incident occured at school. Many people have suggested that he would only receive diversion, but I am concerned. I would appreciate any input.

I discovered my debit card missing last week and a $100

Hello-I discovered my debit card missing last week and a $100 withdrawal from a nearby ATM had been made. I questioned my 2 teens who knew my pin number (I have let them go to the grocery for me a couple of times each since they became drivers) and was convinced neither took it. I filed a police report. Yesterday I discovered that it was in fact my stepson. He is 19 so not a juvenile. I looked into the repercussions and found that this is categorized as identity theft and is a felony. I do not want him to have a felony on his record for the rest of his life causing it difficult to get jobs, etc... but he has been getting into trouble a lot, has gotten into drugs, and I would love to see this scaring him straight. We live in Kentucky. What do you think the outcome of the trial will be if I do see it through? I know that based upon the dollar amount he could have a max. $1000 fine and max. 6 mo. in jail, but my main concern is the lifelong felony record.

My minor son (13) has been charged with a Class C

My minor son (13) has been charged with a Class C Misdemeanor for Electronic Transmission of Certain Material Depicting a Minor. Penal Code 43.261 (Texas) So far, we know that the fine will be $316 and we are to go before a Judge this Thursday. It's been brought to my attention that perhaps he should have legal representation. I don't wish to be unprepared, but am uncertain of how these proceedings work. Any advice?

I have a nephew in school in Huntington WV that is dealing

I have a nephew in school in Huntington WV that is dealing with racial discrimination and harassment. He attends a predominantly white school and at 14 yrs old is 6ft 3inches tall. He has Asberger disorder and severe asthma and refuses to play basketball for them due to the danger to his health. He is a loner and they don't like that he doesn't socialize or that he is an African American muslim. He becomes irritated with the harassment and calms himself by dropping his hands to his side and balling up his fists and squeezing his hands until he is calm. The last time he had an incident they claimed he assaulted them and tackled him to the floor and removed him from school and he is due to go to court June 13 with the possibility of going to juvenile detention. The school has not done an IEP even though it has been requested and have been told of his disability several times. What can I do so that I can move him to another state and take him from this hostile environment?
