Yes, "they can do that". Turning 18 does not mean you are not subject to court orders. I suggest you speak with an attorney. Good luck.

Grant St Julian III answered on Mar 24, 2020

Anything COULD happen, but I strongly suggest you don't do anything without talking with your attorney. Don't talk with law enforcement or the DA's office and make an admission of guilt. Good luck.
