https://www.wklaw.comOn the topic of weapons and young people, parents should be aware that:

If your child is caught possessing, selling or using a dangerous weapon at school, he or she can be suspended or expelled. This punishment is in addition to any criminal charges that might be filed against your child. (Ed.C§§ 48900(b), 48915). Many school districts have a zero tolerance policy for weapons. That means your child may be expelled. The school starts with a 5 day suspension while they get the paperwork together. Your child is entitled to a hearing where the school must present evidence to prove your child should be expelled. Your child is entitled to have a lawyer represent them. The school will not pay for or provide a lawyer. If there is a criminal case the attorney will often want to examine the witnesses at an expulsion hearing.

At Wallin & Klarich, we will handle the criminal case and the expulsion hearing.
