Can I provide a defense for my 23 year old retarded stepdaughter if I don’t believe she was read her rights?
My mentally retarded adult stepdaughter gave a statement to police causing my arrest of sexual battery. Her beginning statement was a lie and now she has added the truth to it. I highly doubt she was told she had the right to remain silent or choose not to go to court. as she is residing in an assisted living home. Would it be legal for me to provide an attorney to explain my possible sentence and offer to defend her right to remain silent and opt out of court?
