  • teenagers rights

    Hypothetically speaking A teenage girl is told to get in to a police car after the officer accuses her of doing something that she knows she didn't do.Does she have the right to refuse to get in the car until her parents are called?
    Make no mistake about it,you will get caught and you will go to jail!

    No. The officer has the same ability to arrest a teenager that he/she has to arrest an adult. If the officer has probable cause to make an arrest and the teen refuses to comply, the teen would be looking at adding resisting arrest to the charges, same as anyone else.

    There may or may not be issues regarding questioning and waiver of rights for someone under the age of 18 without a parent present. Different states' courts have ruled different ways on the issue.

      What was the teenage girl accused of doing? Hypothetically speaking of course

        That kind of behavior could easily mean the difference between being released to appear to a parent and being lodged in juvenile detention for an extended period of time.

        In a nut shell, whether your 16 or 80, the roadside is NOT the place to argue your innocence. That's why we have courts.

          Sure....she has the right to refuse, but the officer also has the right to force her into the car and add additional charges for her ignorance.

            The parents only have to be notified AFTER you are taken into custody.

              Teenagers may be allowed to disobey a parent, but they are NOT allowed to disobey an order from a police officer because they think they didnt do anything wrong. That question kind of sums up the mindset of a lot of teenagers.......why would you think you had some special right to not obey a police officer just because you are under 18???

                I may be dating my self a bit, but I remember when the law clearly said an individual had the right to resist and unlawful arrest. Some states may still have laws like that, Michigan changed a few years ago to read no one may resist arrest lawful or unlawful.

                Courts a lawyers are designed to weed out nlawful arrests, not teenage girls. Its funny how quickly a momentary stop at the side of the road can turn into an R&O complaint and arrest. Its like going from 0 to 60 in 1 second.

                  Teenager's Rights.

                  The post immediately preceeding mine, mentions the right of a citizen to resist an arrest he deems, or knows to be unlawful. I don't have a whole lot of case law in front of me concerning that, but I'll remind you of an old cop axiom. "You might beat the rap, but you won't beat the ride". As a practical matter, any citizen, and that includes a teenager, is best advised to submit to the arrest. The issue of legality, or illegality of the arrest, is a matter for the courts.If the teenager doesn't mind having an additional charge of resisting arrest filed against him/her, then, by all means, refuse to get into the patrol car.

                    Ya, try that. It's a great way to turn a civil infraction in to a felony.

                      Short answer. NO. It doesn't matter what the juvenile feels she knows what matters is wheter the Officer has P/C and that is determined by the courts and or the juvenile intake who issues the petitions not the acused. Same applies for adults as well. Thats where lawyers get citizens into trouble giving them encouragement not to cooperate with police in any way instead of sticking to giving them advice on self incrimination.

                        This is ill advice. 99% of the folks we arrest everyday say they didn't do anything wrong. Like others have advised, the attorneys, juries, and judges will decide whether the arrest was unlawful. Doing so on the side of the road will only make the situation worse.

                              NO... You do what I tell you, or I make you do what I tell you.
