Will my son be tried as a juvenile in Illinois?

My son videotaped a fight that occurred at school and the school and police are associating him with the fight. They are saying that he was a part of it all. While I do know that he was friends with the guy who was doing the fighting, I don't think that he should receive essentially the same charge. What can be done? I don't want my son to be tried as an adult for assault.

    If your son was 17 years old or above at the time of the offense, he will be tried as an adult, whether you like it or not. If an adult, retain counsel to represent him, there is a remote possibility he might win at trial, or be offered a disposition which will not follow him for the rest of his life.
