My response:

From West Virginia, the land of "Angelic Children" - - Thank you for your lively thoughts concerning the Criminal Justice System.

I almost laughed myself off my chair when you wrote:

"my thirteen year old son has never been introuble with the law . . ."

I especially liked your statement that:

" . . . they are the ones that throwed the first punch and our son had proof."

Does your 13 year old have video tape? Or, did Peggy Sue, Norma Jean, and Billy Joe Bob see the fight and are all willing to be your son's witnesses in court? What is the "proof"?

My questions:

1. How many other 13 year old children are there in West Virginia that get "introuble with the law"?

2. After age 13, when do most West Virginia children usually start getting "introuble with the law"?

3. Prior to age 13, what is the average amount of times a child in West Virginia gets "introuble with the law"?

4. How many times does a 13 year old have to get "introuble with the law" before that child is considered a "bad seed", and the parents are considered to be bad parents?

5. By your parental standards, what is a good age, after 13, that a West Virginia child can start getting "introuble with the law"?

Observations: Your son is only 13. He doesn't have much of a "history" in this life, being only 13. Perhaps, at 14, he'll start writing his autobiography !!

Are you saying that some other 13 year old children in West Virginia already have criminal records? Most children at age 13, from anywhere in the country, DON'T get "introuble with the law."

Do you think you are humorous IAAL? In how many ways can you not only insult but humiliate and degrade one person? Shame, shame, shame, everyone knows your name! It's IAAL!

I am not an attorney, but in this instance it may not be an attorney you need. Your son is 13, made some bad choices, and is on probation. As a parent, I would be wondering if there is something going on in his life that has affected his behavior. We always want to point the finger at others instead of taking any responsibility for our own actions. Even if your son didn't start the fights, he still had other choices. Probation is not the end of the world, but as a parent you must take some action to make sure that it is the end of the trouble instead of the beginning. Perhaps seek some counseling. This is the time to reach out to your child. The teen years are very difficult, confusing, and frustrating, especially these days with so many bad influences. All teens need guidance to point them down the right path. I took some parenting classes when I became a foster parent. Although I thought I was a good parent, I learned a great deal. I recommend all parents enroll. Take care and good luck.
