My 16 year old brother was arrested for trying to stab his
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?

I live in an HOA and recently my bedroom ceiling fell in due
I live in an HOA and recently my bedroom ceiling fell in due to moisture and water was running down my walls. I call a contractor and he had to cut a hole in my roof to find the problem. While he and his partner were on the roof, another HOA member came down asked what they were doing-said they needed a Township permit and told them to get off of my property, even though they had my permission o be there. The member got angry, starting swearing at them and left. The contractor called me and I contacted this other member. I left a message on his phone, plus sent him a text not to trespass on my property. A couple of hours later he returned to my property and he started yelling and swearing on the two contractors, and they swore back. The member then threw the ladder down and said "Now try and get down." After more yelling he put the ladder back. Then he told the one contractor to come down and he would settle things up with him. Finally he left.After I warned him not to trespass and he came back, I filed a report with the State Police. My question is by removing the ladder and trapping the contractor on the roof until he felt like letting them down, is that any type of assault?
