I live in Texas and our 14 year old son has gotten out of

Hello. I live in Texas and our 14 year old son has gotten out of hand in a terrible and frightening way. He believes he is part animal and has been getting involved in perverted bestiality type of sites on the internet. Anyway, I got on to him, I hit him when he kept saying that he didn't care he was still going to do these things and we were not going to stop him. He ran away and told the police I was beating him and then CPS got involved. When he came home after that. Some one (we don't know if it was a friend or the police officer that kept talking to him alone) gave him a recording device or phone and he recorded us in our own home. Yes we yelled, cussed and it sounds bad but it was not what he said it was. Anyway, I had an ex sheriff tell me that this is like entrapment. And that although it was legal in the state of Texas to record a conversation as lone as 1 party consents but he said that the 14 year old could not consent caus he is a minor and that you can record in public but not in the privacy of our own home. He said if we got a good lawyer we could have it all thrown out. WE don't know what we should do. Is this correct information??JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: Real estate?JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: With whoJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I'm confused.JA: What confuses you?Customer: I'm not talking about real estate.
