Q: Daughter was written ticket for something she didnt do, how do I defend her against an officer?
Students witnessed and confirmed she didnt push another student..the school sent her back to class. School resource officer pulls her out of class and writes her a ticket for pushing her..she refuses to sign it and tells him to call her mom. He says he will not call me and told her to sign the ticket or be arrested. We are currently going to court to fight this. What can I do to help her?
A: Hire an attorney to defend your daughter. That is the best way you can help her.
A: Hire an attorney. Discuss this with her attorney., not some random attorney on a public forum who does not have all the facts
A: You need to hire an attorney. Many lawyers offer free consultations to discuss issues before a fee gets finalized. I think you and your daughter should go meet with at least a couple to see who you and your daughter like.
One thing to remember here, in this case, the daughter is the client, not you even if you're the one paying for the representation. In the end, the lawyer is going to have to work with your daughter and discuss some things with your daughter privately.
As much as you want to be your daughter's advocate here, you can't. You need to get an advocate for her.
I wish you the best of luck.
