What is the name of your state? Missouri
I have posted 2 posts about my 16 year old son being assaulted in the bathroom by a deputy while two others stood by. After this incident he was charged with 3 felonies and 2 mistmeanors (spelling?) . Someone told me to get a copy of the police report. I went to the sheriff today and asked for a copy of my son's police report. He said he couldn't give it to me. He said it was part of the investigation. I said "But he's already been charged and trial has been set for this month. The investigation is over." I asked if it was department policy not to give me a copy. He said it was the law. He said I had to have a lawyer motion the court for me to get a copy. Is he telling me the truth? Does the Freedom of Information Act let me have a copy of my juvenile son's police report? How do I get a copy?
