Local State's Attorney has filed a petition for Adjudication of Wardship for my 15 year old. Charge..Unlawful Possession of Cannabis not more than 2.5 grams.
The story reads like this, my 15 year old and 2 other juveniles went riding around during their school lunch break. They were tardy and school officials said their eyes were red. Local police were called and the juveniles werw questioned and searched. Yes, their rights were read to them, I had no prior knowledge to what was taking place at school. Results, k-9 hit on the car they were in, a few seeds found, the car belongs to the brother of one of the juveniles and the same juvenile has some (pot) in his shoes. After being searched and questioned He and my 15 year old admitted to smoking a joint during lunch. When I was contacted by the police about the incident, I asked if my 15 year old had any drugs in his possession, the officer stated nothing was found during their search. I asked if a drug test was administered, his reply was no! When I went to this police station to get my 15 year old he was handcuffed to a chair in the lobby of the police station. A sad sight, but I can live with that. I asked the arresting officer if my child were free to go and would there be an charges, he stated his report would be sent to the states attorney, but probably he would be charged with possession because he admitted to smoking a joint. Question? Is this true....I'm trying to get a crimal lawyer before we must appear the judge. Court date is June 6th and it's friday night! Please respond ASAP..........
