The Prossecutor offered a plea deal of No time in jail (365 days gone) $850 (out of $5000) Don't drink or do drugs. (didn't request mandatory classes) difficult child-A doesn't like this. He pleads not guilty and requests a public defender. He let me know that he did that because he's going to have the charges dropped. They didn't read him his rights. When he walked into court yesterday he had to read his rights and sign if he understood them. Then the judge asks if he understands his rights, he says yes. difficult child-A isn't worried about that because they didn't read them to him on the day of the incident, therefore, they have to let him off. And by not taking the plea - the 0 days in jail is off the table. Got to love the way their minds work. So, now he just has to visit the public defender before his March 1st court date.
