I'm broke. And it sucks
Lawyer: Ulysses101, Lawyer replied 4 months ago

So, who is the complainant here? Or were they simply observed "getting fresh" contrary to school policy? How old is the girlfriend?

14 and the school.
Lawyer: Ulysses101, Lawyer replied 4 months ago

You can't stop the child from being charged. But the child will qualify for legal aid help, I'm certain.

Go to the station, get your first court date, don't argue with the police while you're there because that will only make it worse. Clearly someone higher up has decided to make an example of your son.

If he's a good kid, does well in school, strong family supports, no criminal record, he should be fine. He's likely to get diversion of some kind. Get him into some counselling now if you can, he needs to learn to follow the school rules and that at 16 he shouldn't be going after 14 year olds.

Does that make sense?

He imhas been kicked out of cadets amd everything. And there is nothing we can do? I have to walk him to the police and let them taint his reputation. And life
Lawyer: Ulysses101, Lawyer replied 4 months ago

If you don't bring him there, a warrant for his arrest will issue.

And there has to be more to it than they were just kissing. Just wait for the evidence before losing your mind over this.
