I am being tried for criminal trespassing at my grandmothers house. I have, maybe2 speeding tickets, which I have paid. Will this be on my record? What should I do to prepare for my upcoming court date.
Do not post those incriminating facts on a public forum, and do not discuss this with anyone. Hire a competent attorney to get it diverted, dismissed and expunged. You do not want a criminal conviction on your record.
Her mother has known about the interactions and has done nothing she invites older men over She put drugs in her daughters mouth she takes naked pictures of her daughter and she hasn’t done anything about her daughter get molested
The mother could be charged with multiple crimes. Reporting abuse can be anonymous and should be reported to the Tennessee Department of Children's Services immediately at 877-237-0004. https://www.tn.gov/dcs/program-areas/child-safety/reporting/hotline-faq.html
The answer should obviously be no. But if any of that is true, the incarcerated Defendant might want to file a Habeas Corpus Petition. He will need an attorney, and it could be filed in Federal or State Court.

That is usually a Felony Charge, where any possession is charged as intent to distribute, etc. Hire a competent attorney immediately.

If no criminal charges were made, then probably no violation has occurred. It is possible the State will learn of violating your Probation Order, but stay away from drugs, work, and you will probably be alright for the next 11/29.
