I received an assault charge (simple assault) when I was 17, My mother received paperwork stating I had to listen to her and her rules. I am now 20. My mother is telling me that I absolutely have to live with her and cannot move out because of my charge from 3 years ago. Is she right? She told me if I even leave state or leave at all, She will call the cops and they will bring me back to her. Can she do this?
Three years is a long time. When a minor lives with their parent, the parent makes the rules. When they become a legal adult at 18, they are free to decide where they will live and to make their own rules. A person under the supervision of Dept. of Corrections/Probation and Parole may be subject to certain rules associated with that supervision, but you don't say you are one of those persons, only that you were charged with simple assault three years ago. You don't say there was a prosecution and conviction or that there was a deferred adjudication or that conditions were imposed on you. You don't tell us what the paperwork says or who issued the paperwork. You ought to have a look at that paperwork so you know what it says. If it was issued by a court, you can go to that court and ask to have a look at the file.
