Q: Drunk grandmother hit my 17 year old daughter my 19 year old son defends his sister and he gets put in jail what do i do
more info will be needed
obviously, you need to get a lawyer either private or by requesting the court appoint the public defender at the arraignment.
write out all the facts and have any wits do the same so the lawyer can evaluate the case and determine if it was self defense or defense of others etc
PD don't always have a lot of time and by being prepared it will make the life easier for the attorney.
A: Hire a criminal defense attorney. I seems unlikely that a 17 year old daughter needed significant assistance defending herself from a drunken grandmother.
