You might have a legal argument to prevent the suspensions. I would look into retaining an attorney to look into the situation so the exact facts are known and then to follow up with DVS and if necessary the Court.

She recently had a fight after school with a another girl. After the altercation the police interviewed several witnesses and said they will be charging. How can I protect her? What are her legal rights as a 16 year old.
Assault in the Third Degree is a felony offense. It is very serious and she needs an attorney. At this point, I assume that her case will be heard in juvenile court, but it is hard to know without more information. An attorney can help to protect her rights and to help minimize any consequences...Read more »
Not sure what your attorney has to do with this. Reading between the lines, it sounds as if you likely have to get a psych-sexual evaluation based on the costs. You could certainly have the evaluation done through probation which would be less expensive. The recommendations through that exam are...Read more »
Several weeks ago my daughter (17) was shoulder-checked hard and intentionally by a coworker (30s) who was upset with her. She told her managers but nothing was done. She didnt report it to anyone else as she feared getting fired (the coworker is friends with the boss). She has recently quit that... Read more »
If the case really was resolved with a stay of adjudication and you completed probation successfully, a conviction should never have been entered. Sounds like there may be an error by court staff. You should have a lawyer help you get this corrected.

If there are multiple orders prohibiting contact they would all need to be modified in order for contact to be allowed. If only one is modified, the other would remain in effect and contact would be a violation.

Yes. If you do you not qualify for a public defender, you will have to pay for your own counsel. Most attorneys will provide a free consultation. Reach out and see what fees look like, they may be more affordable than you think. Not having an attorney will not get you out from under the...Read more »
