My son was charged with simple assault as a juvenile 8 months ago. Numerous calls to the PD detective who was reportedly in charge of his case have gone unanswered and he was never arraigned.
Even a call to the PD by his attorney went unanswered. Is there still a charge against him? How do I get the case resolved one way or another?
If he never went to court then u should expect a summons in the mail for an appearance. They may also send him to what I call juvenile diversion. If ur son has never been in trouble before they will have an intake in providence. Given the fact he is 18 they probably will give him a warning. U should contact his public defender again
