- Try to convince probation not to request that a petition against your child is not filed
- Request your child's release.
- Request that probation informally supervise your child without a petition filed.
- Suggest to probation a rehabilitation program to help your child.
- Convince the D.A not to file charges against your child
- Convince the D.A to allow the case to be handled informally without going to court.
- Convince the D.A. to file lesser charges against your child
- Convince the D.A. the case does not merit incarceration for your child
- Fight to have your child acquitted of all juvenile charges at trial.
