You will need to talk with an attorney so that he can represent you in the hearing. If you have documentation that you were home schooled and your mother will testify about the notes, it sounds like you may have a defense. Speak with an attorney immediate so that he can protect your interests in the hearing.
Don't worry too much about this. Get an attorney and go with you to court, they will help make the whole process less painful.
