Should my minor son have an attorney at a detention hearing?
My son was caught in possession of a loaded handgun at a friend's house by police. We are told by the Probation Office that a public defender will not be assigned until after the detention hearing. He has no prior record and is a good student. Can we get him out or is it totally up to the judge? Does he enter a plea without representation?
