Wisconsin....I have a question for everyone i am having a problem at school about being expelled and People like my dads co-workers and other people have been saying its illegal for the police to interview a 15 year old without notifying my parents or consent? people at my school got suspended for the same deal and this is what they used against them to save them from expellsion about the parent consent law so if you could email me that would be great if this is actaully a law my email is [email protected] thanks alot

I do not believe Wisconsin has a statute requiring parental notification, presence or even consent prior to a police interview. I have heard there are one or two states that require this at school, but I do not believe that Wisconsin was on that short list.

If you go to court, your parents can ask your attorney if anything that was said can be used against you if you were questioned without a parent. But, nothing prevents the school from still acting to expel you regardless of the legality of the police officers' actions.
