What to do if my son 16 years old has been acused of 9 counts of vandalizam with spray paint?

We went to court this morning. After a few hours someone came out and told us that we were all set so we could leave. They told us that my son can consider that he was never arrested and all charges were gone as if it never happened. A few hours later, the same guy called and left a message on my ansewing machine saying that he was mistaken and we have to come back to court net month for a hearing. Can they do that?

Based upon what you have written about there is clearly some confusion in the court system with respect to your son and the charges he is facing. Given the problem, it is wise for you to retain a criminal defense attorney to represent your son and to possibly resolve the matter to your and his satisfaction.
