I've been on probation for about a year now, & me and my mother have been having problems at home . I left for about 2 -3 weeks without anyone knowing where i was going with no intentions upon returning and before that i cut off my monitor so no one would find me. My mom says that i have receive a felony charge. When the police caught me I was sent to a RYDC went to court the next day and they told me that i'm going to be in custody of DJJ and in need of a placement I'm currently in a group home. My next court date is coming up soon and I'm not sure what will happen. PLEASE help me !
Criminal charges are formal accusations in court that someone has committed a crime. Criminal charges have many classifications and degrees of severity.
Probation is when an offender is released from serving a prison sentence and is instead put under supervision. The degree of supervision depends on the crime.
