If police are questioning my teenage son, does he have the right to have an attorney present?

My son is 14-years-old and was involved in an altercation at school. The police got involved and brought him in for questioning, all of this without my knowledge. I am worried about what he might have said. Even though he is 14, does he have the right to have some sort of lawyer present during his questioning?

    Yes, he has a right to have a lawyer present if they are going to question him. A lawyer should never allow the questioning of a defendant accused of crime. What you see on TV is not reality.
