PO called about 4:15 and said difficult child would not be released tomorrow, he would be transferred to local detention center for "detention reentry"- for how long? He doesn't know but that was word from central office and he'll let me know when difficult child is transferred.. I call central office and they told me to talk to PO- I am to work with PO, not them. OK- now let me just say- detention reentry is supposed to be 30--60 days and is used as a step down program and is not to add to a juvenile's time incarcerated/sentence. That's the law. I had asked for it before. Fine except that PO refused to look at it and I didn't push that one due to lack of education in a detention center and due to difficult child saying he'd rather be in a state Department of Juvenile Justice and PO said difficult child wouldn't qualify because it would require difficult child finishing his anger management tx at least 30 days prior to his release date. Never mind any of that- it's illegal for them to order any program that adds to his incarceration or punishment at this point. It's the law. I've spent the last 1/2 hour trying to get an attny willing to go up against Department of Juvenile Justice. If they can't follow the law regarding step-down being used to add to his sentence and PO is saying he doesn't know how long difficult child would be in there when it says 30-60 days in the law, I sure can't trust them to release difficult child from the detention center at 30 days. Oh- and difficult child has to wait where he is until they are ready to accept him in the local detention center. Now I'm ready to write fed doj. Does anyone have any other suggestions?
