The lawyer that I have been speaking to regarding my daughter's case called me today. Some of you might remember that the lawyer who stood in for my daughter at her last court date (the one I missed because I was not notified) told her she was going to do some time and get probation. Well, that is not entirely true. They are still looking to get her case transferred to Youth Court. If all goes well (keep your fingers crossed) and they take the case, my daughter could be placed through them. If they don't accept her, the Criminal Court system will put her on TASK again. If she messes that up and TASK recommends that she needs placement then they are able to mandate her into some sort of treatment facility. She told me that the lawyer only told my daughter that probation was a possibility. I asked Ellen (lawyer I spoke to) to have my daughter's files transferred from Family Court over to Criminal Court. That file has all of my daughter's evaluations and dxs, her mental health history. I want them to have all of the information so they can see that my daughter needs help. I also gave her the names and phone numbers of the sw and my DSS case worker. She said she will call me as soon as she knows more. In the meantime, my sw is going to write a letter to the judge requesting that my daughter be transferred to Youth Court. She will give him a brief history and her recomendation to have my daughter placed. I don't know if that will make a difference but it's worth a try!!! Thanks for listening. I will keep you posted. Shawna p.s. Positive thoughts and your prayers will be so appreciated. Some magic won't hurt either!!!
