No one could tell you for sure what would happen prior to a judge hearing evidence in a case. However, it sounds like these kids need representation from an attorney who will look out for their futures. Depending on the charges, the kids' lives could be impacted in a negative way.
Usually the Judge incarcerates you for some or all of your Sentence. In fact, the Probation Officer/Juvenile Officer usually takes you into custody when you fail the urine/hair test. Call your attorney.
It *sounds* like this is in the early stages of CPS involvement, in which case the Department of Children's Services merely needs to show there is "probable cause" to prevent your husband from having contact with your children, in the interest of keeping your children safe....Read more »
Who told you to bring the child to Court? If it is not an Order from a Judge, then you do not have to. But it sounds like other interested parties want the Child there. Hire an attorney to represent you, and take the Child to Court. Apparently your continued custody is in peril.

General Sessions is not a Court of Record, and the Citations or Warrants can be amended or dismissed at anytime with new Charges being instituted. You might want to hire an attorney so this will be as painless as possible.
I recommend you immediately consult with an experienced criminal defense attorney. You may also want to consider consulting with an experienced defamation attorney, if there is no basis in fact for any of the allegations against you. Sexual crimes involving children have strict punishments and can...Read more »
When she attempted to enter the room she was told Covid-19 policies prevented her from accompanying my daughter, this was after my wife had paid the fee.
