hello i am a 17 year old male who is on truancy. The judge assigned me to a probation
officer and i just met him in his office to discuss how my school attendance is going. I have been going to school and doing all of my work. The po told me there will b consequneces if you don't go to school. At one point po told me how i was talking "disrespectful" which i disagree. i only said yeah instead of yes and question things to po because i was irritated that he treated me like i have not been going to school. which made him irritated as well. Here is my problem, at one point he threatened me by saying that he will hand cuff me and send me to juvenile
hall because he did not like how i was talking to him. He also said that i had to stop talking if you don't want me to detain you. Naturally i stopped talking because i did not want to be arrested. But i feel unsettled because i felt like he had no right to detain me if i was not doing any harm to po + i was not talking disrespectful enough that i had to be arrested and he was taking my right to speak by threatening to detain me and send me to juvenile hall.
JA: OK. To minimize me, please click the down arrow at the top right corner of this box.
Customer: moral of the story is probation officer was trying to hand cuff me because i was talking "disrespectful" is this a good enough cause to detain me?
JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?
JA: Has anything been filed or reported?
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: im on truancy
