ARSON, RECKLESS BURNING and CRIMINAL DAMAGE DISMISSED – State v. Mr. T (DMC No. 7572) (Maricopa County Juvenile Court JV-857561): Mr. T was a 15 year old boy who had previously been charged with Arson, but after completing safety classes the charges were dismissed. On the newest incident, police were called to his home when a fire had started in his bedroom. He was also questioned and made partial admissions to two vehicles being lit on fire in the neighborhood. He ultimately admitted that he had a problem with fire, and he was charged in the Juvenile Court system. Because there were issues with his questioning without his parents being present and not being read his Juvenile Miranda Rights, we were able to negotiate a Diversion Dismissal Agreement which allowed Mr. T to do Probation while he was taking classes and receiving counseling. Ultimately, he successfully completed counseling and he has no convictions on his record.
