I say "with" because I feel as if I'm facing the charges myself. My sons detailed police report came in the mail...my son told me after coming in the house for more clothes that he didn't care if I opened the letter...this he said as he went out the door so carelessly. He is so stupid, I don't think he realizes the seriousness of the charges he is facing. It's not just that he was high, but he was driving and there were several empty Ziplock baggies on the console with the seeds from the weed. His eyes were glassy, they took him to the hospital for a blood test which confirmed that he was high of course. I think the most difficult part for me to read was that there were 5 policemen that he wrestled with and a vicious police dog, terrified my son laid himself on the ground but not before kicking one of the cops when they attempted to throw him on the ground. WHAT WAS HE THINKING? well, guess he wasn't thinking. The report is 2 pages long that the judge will be reading. And mind you this is the judge that he stood before when he was 17 years old , that was for having lots of weed on him and disorderly conduct. My husband kicked him out and my son has to make these phone calls to his public defender, he's been court ordered for fingerprints,etc. Does anyone here have their kids facing both the addiction of drugs AND these kind of charges? My son is very careless. I mean if I were the one smoking weed at least I'd try to hide it from my parents. He was so careless and I never thought it would come to this kind of trouble with the law. I think I'm getting mad which I hear is progress? one more question is that I'll be with my son at the hearing ...will the judge ask me if I have anything to say? should the judge know that my son is homeless? it will already look bad that he hasn't tried to find a job since he's been out of work for over a month now. what do I say?
