Helping Good People At Their Worst Times

Burglary of a vehicle is a felony and as such our local schools (Santa Rosa and Escambia counties) will most likely expel the child if charged. Typically, the child is not expelled or suspended for a misdemeanor charge. There are appeal procedures with the school district which allow you to bring an attorney to represent your child. Make sure to obtain a copy of the school’s conduct manual. The rules are spelled out.
