My daughter was bullied into confessing to something she didn’t do and the cop tried to bully me into thinking she had no right to ask for me or any other help. He told me I was wrong to tell her that she didn’t have to say anything until I showed up.

1. You absolutely did the right thing telling her not to say anything until you were present
2. They do have the right to question your daughter without informing you in advance and without you present
be turned away directly from the principle?

The law does not require the schools to allow any particular person to volunteer and there are literally hundreds of reasons from the mundane (we have enough help) to the quite serious (this individual set fire to the building last time they were here) that someone might be turned away.

At 18, she is considered an independent adult, and she can make her own decisions free from parental control. You could file with the probate court to obtain guardianship of her -- if there is a doctor diagnosis that she might be a danger to herself or for other medical or psychological reasons....

If you made the recording with the... Read more »
US birth certificate. Isn't this city overreach and illegal to use taxpayer money on children (or the children of parents who are here illegally) who are not born in this country and do not speak English (putting other children behind) and do not have legal status?

Would you rather they don’t have a safe place to go and get an education? They’re here and I’d you force desperate people out into the streets or will certainly cause more desperation and crime.

The statute is pretty clear. I'm not sure what your asking. I suggest rephrasing to address the ultimate issue you are trying to figure out. Restoration of rights? Firearm issues? Voting? etc.

The definition of convict in R.C. 2967 is any person convicted of an Ohio felony whether or not they went to prison but not including people who were pardoned or have finished serving their sentence.

This is a difficult question to answer. Is it a private or public school? What type of punishment are you talking about? It seems like the tardiness would be excusable.

If you were not married to the mother, then the mother had sole legal custody and parental rights. Those parental rights did not automatically transfer to you when she died. It often is not sufficient that your name is on the birth certificate, as you found with the school. If a court has not... Read more »

Yes, but while you are still in Highschool and living at home, your parents are responsible for your reasonable care, accommodation, and feeding. If you move out, you will relieve them of those responsibilities and they won't have to take you back if it turns out you can't cut it on your own.

They should be working with an attorney. They certainly could get probation, but they could easily go jail or prison especially if there was someone in the car.

That’s a rather strange scheme. There’s little precedent on a lot of these issues. General, common sense health precautions are likely to be upheld in court. But this does seem wrongheaded. For one thing, with limited testing resources, it makes sense to focus on those with symptoms or probable... Read more »

Yes. An 18 year old is an adult and can move where he or she pleases. As long as they remain in high school, you are legally required to put a roof over their head if they want it, but they are not required to stay.

The counselors at your school should be able to tell you what the guidelines in your district or county are. It may be as much a personal decision as one of regulations so far as staying in school goes. No one is going to drag you at gunpoint to finish school should you make the decision to drop...

I was accused of something with no proof, given 30 seconds to gather all of my things, expelled for something not mentioned in the handbook and off of school property.
answered on Jan 23, 2020
You can certainly be expelled for something that isn’t in the handbook. They can’t possibly be expected to cover every possible action and most contain some catchall kind of phrase like “other conduct unbecoming of a student.” What are you accused of doing?
