Background: I ran away from hom 3 months ago and came back after a month of couch surfing.

yesterday: prosecuting attorney calls and say hes going to charge me with runaway even tho im only a month and a half away from trning 18

Today: the bastard calls again saying if i plead guilty he will give me
-30 days in jail suspended (meaning i wont have to go unless i follow his rules)
-35 hours of community service
-a supervised job search (meaning i have to show him proof that i am turning in job applications every week)
-2 years of supervised probation (meaning i gotta take piss tests)


OR... I could plead not guilty go to court and risk getting a heavier punishment. but i could also get off scot free.

OR... i could plead guilty, go to jail for 30 days and not have to do probation or community service.

quite frankly i see this whole thing as bullshit since i turn 18 in january and if i do go to court the court date would be a few days after my birthday.

what do you guys think i should do? I honestly dont know what i think is best

Sucks man. I'd say the final option. I'm betting you regret running away now, am I right?

the attorney told me if i go to court, the judge could either

1.throw the case out
2. find me guilty but give me a really easy punishment
3. find me guilty and give me a harsher punishment because he had a bad day.

Well, I'd personally do not guilty and if you could get your parents to vouch for you, then you'd probably get out of it fine. but idk. thats just me.

in idaho runaway is against the law. Just more evidence to show that idaho is the most backward republican redneck state in the country

whats ****ed is that my parents are the ones that tuned me in then called the prosecuter and ask that charges be filed.

I just feel really attacked because he had 2 whole months to pin this shit on me and he decides to spring this on me now.

Plea bargain with them. Say you will plead guilty if they give you a time machine. Then use that time machine to go back in time and DON'T run away from home. Its genius, or at least as smart as you must have been to run away in the first place.

Just go to jail and get released early for good behavior.
Blindfolds aside I'd probably still close my eyes

And try to feel a trembling fetal life inside
that shotgun barrel that's about to make me bleed

I am not an attorney, but...

Who is prosecuting you? Your parents? If so, talk to them and you can probably work something out.

If its the state that's prosecuting you, that's ****ed up. Who are they to press charges against you for running away?

Also, if you can make a speech to give in court to the judge that has the perfect blend of ethos, logos and pathos, you should be able to get the judge to throw the case out, especially since you're so close to 18.

If you plead guilty, you can avoid jail with community service and the other things? Do that. Jail is the opposite of what you want. I don't understand how you can plead not guilty to running away.

its the state thats charging me, but my parents are the ones that asked that they do.

Barry (the prosecuter) is bitter because ive gotten off scot free the last 2 times i got in legal trouble and now he is bitter.

because i could say that they told me to leave and then called the police when i left. its actually quite common around here.

doing so would create a whole bunch of red tape that no self respecting judge would want to deal with and he might if hes in a good mood throw the case out.

Ahh I see. If he's in a bad mood or is a good judge, he may listen to your parents and the prosecutor instead of trusting your word. That'd be the problem.

I realize that now. It was a kinda spurr of the moment thing. i snuck out one night had a blast and didnt show back up for a month.

It wasnt like i ran away to get away from my parents cuz they wouldnt spoil me. I was just having a lot more fun with my friends than i did sitting at home everyday.

30 days in jail, for sure, then its all done and over with. Besides, its only 30 days, that means it will be county, county is nothing, full of drunk drivers and pot dealers. You wont get a murderer or a rapist for a celly in county.

How about the supervised job search? Getting a job doesn't sound like a punishment at all...

It's bad times when people can't even run away from their own home without getting jailed.

You chose to act like a spastic, take responsibility for your actions and do your time, it's all part of growing up mate (this is coming from someone who did stupid shit and got in trouble as a teen, by the way).
My suggestion would be the suspended sentence with the conditions.

This is the best option. His conditions are stupid.

Well maybe it's different there, but were I am, I went to county for 7 months for assault with a deadly weapon, and I was the most hardcore guy there.

If I look back to when I was 18... granted I'm in Australia and the age for alcohol is 18 not 21, I would gladly take a 30 day sentence in juvy to escape not being able to consume any alcohol or other substance for 2 fucking years.

Edit: Oh, and I would gladly support an 18 year old to make that decision
