the id was used to get inside a 18+ musical festival.
The facts you have presented aren't enough to reach a yes or no answer. The answer is basically that it is legal if it was reasonable under the circumstances at the time. Whether it was reasonable at the time could depend on a lot of factors.
If you are the person charged with the fake id, or the parent of that teen, you should consult an experienced local juvenile criminal defense attorney. Possession/use of a fake ID can have very serious consequences for a teen, including fines, probation, and loss/delay of driving privileges. If you cannot afford to hire an experienced attorney, request a public defender when you get to court.
Can the 16 year old have a relationship with a 22-23 year old Under Maryland law if there not having sex?
Whether or not sex is involved, a 16-year old is a minor. A minor's parents are responsible for their teen's welfare and have legal authority to disapprove of unsuitable friends or activities, even if the activity is not illegal. If the teen is involved in this relationship without parental approval, it would be wise for him or her to introduce the friend to the parents sooner rather than later. If they don't approve, they probably have a valid reason.
The people I broke into didn't want to press charges but seance it's a felony the cop decided to.
Burglary is an extremely serious charge. Whether or not the victim wants to "press charges" is not relevant. The police and the prosecutor enforce laws for the protection of the general public, not for the benefit of individual victims.

Juvenile court closed my case giving me full legal physical soul custody of my kids giving father supervised visits with any adult approved by me. How can I change these orders
You didn't mention what change you want to make, or why. If you want father to have no visitation at all, you'll have to bring an action for termination of parental rights. There is a very high evidentiary burden. If you believe father deserves more visitation, you could file a motion to modify the order. Either way, speak to an experienced local family law attorney.

Contact an experienced juvenile lawyer in Massachusetts to find out if there is any way to set aside or seal the adjudication, and if this can relieve you of registration requirements.
My son & 5 of his friends were at a park. Another child claimed money was stolen. Police were called & once my son & his friends were done being physically searched and no money was found the officers found on the ground (not on or near my son) c...
An officer must have probable cause to arrest or issue a citation. This means a set of facts (not just a hunch) that would cause a reasonable, experienced officer to conclude that a crime occurred and the citee/arrestee committed it.
No one can be compelled to identify another suspect for a crime. If the cigar wrappers are just garbage on the ground, there may be no evidence to support citing your son. On the other hand, if his breath or hands smelled of tobacco or marijuana, there might be probable cause (some people smoke marijuana by pulling the tobacco out of cheap cigars, mixing it with cannabis, and putting the mixture back into the wrapper).
You and your child should speak to an experienced local juvenile law attorney. Such a lawyer could analyze any possible defenses, and also advise you and your son of any significant consequences of the offense. Some states may suspend or delay a juvenile's driver's license, or could make him in eligible for school sports or scholarships.
Prefer to e-mail attorney who responds.
The gender of the conservator and conservatee are not relevant to conflict of interest issues. While it isn't necessarily a conflict of interest issue, I'm wondering why a DA's office employee is functioning as a conservator? This isn't normally a service of the DA's office. There is a separate agency, called the Public Guardian, that can act as conservator if needed. If the DA's employee is doing this outside if his work, there may be office rules governing employees' rights to perform services outside of their employment.
Im 17, never been caught or charged for drugs except minor in possession of tobacco. On my psych evaluation it said I was a high risk for marijuana use.
Generally, you are better off being straight with your probation officer. He's giving you the test, so he will know the result soon enough. If you are honest, it will show a sign of taking responsibility. If you don't get clean, you'll just keep getting in trouble. If you can't abstain from marijuana, drugs, tobacco, or alcohol, ask your probation officer about substance abuse treatment or services.
His mom has residential custody. In missouri. i tried discussing this with her and shes not willing to discuss it.
Who caught your son with marijuana? You? Police? His school?
If your concern is that your son's mother is smoking marijuana and making it potentially available to her child, speak to an experienced family law attorney about bringing a motion to change your custody arrangements. Even if you don't want to take away Mom's parenting time, the court could make orders to make sure your son doesn't access marijuana at her home and that she is sober when he is in her care. For example, the court could order her to go to counseling, submit to testing, be sober while your son is in her care, and have no illegal drugs in her home during visits.
If your son received a citation or referral to juvenile court for possession of marijuana, he needs an experienced local juvenile attorney. The juvenile court doesn't care where he got the marijuana, and will punish him according to what it believes are your son's rehabilitative needs, based on any prior record, school performance, behavior, mental health, willingness to obey parents and school staff, and any disclosure of substance abuse.
merits of the case if the defendent contends self defence?
The testimony of one person, if believed, is sufficient to prove any fact (with a few exceptions that don't apply here). The merits of a self defense claim depend on the facts of the case.
