I am the parent of a 13-year-old. He has recently gotten involved in sexual harassment. He iMessaged a girl some very, very inappropriate messages (eggplants, inappropriate cussing, etc) at school ~1 month ago. We just now got a letter that we need to attend an Intake Conference on the 25th.
-- We are in Oklahoma (Norman)
-- He had confessed and took it upon himself to right an apology letter to the girl.
-- He has no previous history of this, other than asking some girls sexual questions that they allowed him to ask & a history of porn.
-- He barely knew the girl.
-- The age difference was roughly 4 months.
-- We pulled him out of his public middle school and put him in an online school.
-- This is his first legal offense ever. (Other than drug possession, but there wasn't enough evidence from the school to warrant them to charge him)
-- We have gotten him psychologically tested for sleep issues and because of this. No results yet, but the psychologist stated he wasn't a danger to society. She also gave us a notice stating that he had attended.
-- We have gathered his med. records, school records, and other requested documents. We do not have his social security card.
-- Whats the difference between a charge and a referral?
-- What do they do at an intake conference?
-- Do I need an attorney?
-- Will they (NPD) need to forensically investigate his electronics?
-- What is the sentencing for Sexual Harassment?
-- Is it sexual harassment? On the referral it states "Threat / Harass.".
-- What will they already have on record?
-- Can he be arrested if the intake officer deems the family or him unfit for society?
My lawyer has stated I can fully disclose this information without legal consequence. I'd appreciate as much input as possible. Thank you.
