    Answered . You need to hire an experienced juvenile attorney. Your attorney can meet with your son in detention to prepare his defense. The first item is to have your son released from detention. Then your son’s attorney will consider filing a motion to suppress the statement given by your son. This will allow your son to tell the court about how the statement was taken and that he did not want to speak to police officers. The statement is the most important piece of evidence against your child, and only an experienced juvenile attorney can deal with a hearing to suppress a statement given by a juvenile.

    I hope you find this answer helpful.
