Legal Question

Asked on: 4/13/03, 2:40 pm


My son (16) was arrested for shoplifting.

(1)I picked him up at the store at the request of the arresting officer. No paper work was given/to be sent by mail. Received 47 days after the date. Arrested Feb 23 at about 9:00 PM and received notice of appointment with probation dept on April 11. Does he not have the right to a speedy trail as an adult does? (within 45 days)

(2)He was apprehended inside the store. (before going through the sensors and exiting the doors.) Doesn't he have to be outside the store?

(3)Should I seek representation or just admit guilt?
