What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? NC
I'm going to give you the short version. My minor son was accused of touching a minor girl. There hasn't been any charges, nothing can or has been proven.
Well, my son was questioned at school without a parent being present or notified. The school don't even who it was. They don't have a name. They couldn't even tell me how or if they even verified the person's id. After the woman I spoke with called me back. She said someone form the Dept of Juvenile Justice came, but still had no name. She then said she contacted their legal department, and they said they have to legally let him talk to the person. Well, I spoke with the Dept of Juvenille Justice, and they said they didn't come out to his school. They also said that they wouldn't come out unless he has been arrested before, been to court, etc (which he has not).
I have two questions: 1) Can a minor child be questioned by the police, DSS, or anyone regarding an offense or as a suspect in any matter without a parent being present or notified?
2) Do I have some type of legal recourse against the school?
