Clients Expulsion Case Dismissed by School Administration Leaving Her Record Unblemished
My client, a freshman at high school appeared to be successfully attending classes under her Individualized Assessment Plan (IEP) for almost the full school year. However, before the year's end she was accused by school administration officials and the police of hacking into her teacher's computer over 60 times in order to change her grades and the grades of other students as well. My client was not only facing expulsion, but she was also notified by the Probation Office that she was potentially facing charges in a juvenile petition by the District Attorney. Fortunately for my student client, she was represented by counsel that was thoroughly familiar with both the school expulsion process and the juvenile court system. Before my client had two full weeks to panic about the looming expulsion and having to repeat half of her freshman year at school we were able to have the school administration dismiss the expulsion process against my client. My client was immediately transferred to another high school within the school district, her school record remains unblemished and the District Attorney has not filed charges.
