Even though she was the one who sent the photos to him at the time and he was on the wrong for sending them out but they are both minors so what would be the penalty for them and for some reason he hasn’t gotten a call or anything from the policeman that was supposed to call him and it’s been 5...

My 13 year old son was issued a citation for harrassment after hitting his mother in the arm with an outside trashcan, as self defense, after she repeatedly smacked him in the face up to 6-7 times, how is he expected to come up with $300, and can I fight it
No one needs your permission to save the photos you send to them, what would make you think that they do? No one needs your permission to remember what you say to them, or to repeat it to someone else. What you put out on the internet or over texting on the phone is the same thing, and IT LASTS...Read more »
I am on the student advisory board at my high school. We want to implement a peer mentoring program that would offer someone to talk to, conflict resolution, and help with schoolwork. To me, the first two sound like a guidance counselors job. Would it be legal for a student to do this on behalf of... Read more »
None of what you described must be done by a professional if a fee isn't being charged. For instance a good friend or relative often does many or all of these. However the school, before allowing it, will likely have some supervision, standards, and limits/boundaries. But peer-to-peer...Read more »
Boy, that's not a good idea on so many levels. However, based on a quick Google search, it seems that PA has no minimum age limit for getting a tattoo as long as a parent or legal guardian is present and grants permission. If you share legal custody of the child, the mother may have violated...Read more »
The girl is angry about a past situation that was resolved between the ones that were involved I really don't even know the kid I just know she is 16 I don't want that to happen and just want to know what to do in case something happens she is harassing me and stalking me and I can't... Read more »
the cop said he could take my brother to juvenile court and tow my car but he is just going to send us citations in the mail. can my brother get sent to juvie? will I lose my license? I don’t care about paying fines. i’m worried about my brother
Not feeling this is a "juvenile court" matter, but much more a driving-without-a-license matter (which is just a fine). Pay it, and move on. Your brother should be OK. The cop was just trying to scare the both of you -- and looks like it worked.
From what I have read, I cannot be made to move back in with my family unless I am in physical danger where I am staying. I want to move out as soon as possible. I may be pregnant and staying in this home will threaten the safety of myself and my baby. I will be 17 in five months. Please give me... Read more »

I'm 16. My mom and dad have custody of me but they are locked up. I live with my grandparents and have for awhile but they never had custody of me. There health is really bad so that's why they never fought for custody. I don't like how I get treated in my grandparents house. Can my... Read more »
Probably not. I wonder if you might consider being a bit more sympathetic to your grandparents. You say they're health isn't good but they're still providing you with a home to live in, food to eat, and clothing to wear. It may be pretty difficult for people their age to deal with a...Read more »
they are threatening to put a restraining order on my boyfriend because he is black and they don't want me seeing him, they are trying to say he put his hands on me but never did. I live under there roof but they do not have custody of me.
my mom knows my boyfriend and likes him. She... Read more »
Sounds like a rough situation you're in - sorry to hear it. The only "restraining order" your grandparents might be able to obtain against your boyfriend is a Protection from Abuse Order, with them filing on your behalf (since you're a minor). They'd have to swear under...Read more »
My buddy said he was breaking off contact with the 13 year old girl he was talking to and blocking her. She said “fine I’ll go kill myself”. He gave her the suicide hotline number and the blocked her. He asked me if he could be charged with anything, and I said I don’t know. So if she... Read more »
He is 18 asked a 13 year old girl out but that was before he knew her age. He then told her "if she wanted to date they could". He also sent her a picture with no shirt on but from the pecs up (nipples can't be seen, he also only had a shirt off). Now he is worried she could tell the... Read more »
I believe I already answered this same question posted in another section here.
The general answer to "Can he be arrested?" is yes -- anyone can be arrested for anything. It happens all the time. Mistaken identity, false charges, etc. Just because someone is arrested...Read more »
