    The prosecutor could argue that the statute of limitations was tolled (or paused) for the time you were outside Georgia. I'd recommend talking to a criminal defense attorney before you come back to Georgia.

    It's important to hire a lawyer as soon as possible in criminal cases, especially in cases with codefendants. You want your case to be rock solid and presented to the prosecutor before the codefendant makes a deal to testify against you. If you don't have enough money, either ask for a public defender or call some attorneys and see if they will work with you.

    Yes. There is a lot of case law establishing that a school principal is not a state agent for the purposes of a custodial interrogation.

    Yes, you want to bring your parents. Call the probation officer on your court summons (this is the court-based probation officer who supervises you while you have charges pending in juvenile court) and see if you can get your court date changed to when your parents will be in town.

    Shop around. You can find a lawyer at any price point, but what you need to worry about is the amount of work the lawyer is going to do for you. Ask the lawyer to explain exactly what he or she's going to do, and discuss ways you can do some of the work to lower the fee (track stuff down yourself, etc.) What you don't want to do is hire a lawyer "because the case will just be dismissed" and then it isn't and you didn't pay your lawyer enough to prepare the case for trial.
