Carrying a Dangerous Weapon on School Grounds: Cambridge Juvenile Court - Pretrial Probation

Outcome: Pretrial Probation - case to be dismissed in 6 months if client stays out of trouble

Description: TM, a 14-year-old high school student, was arrested for bringing a switch blade to school. The police were called to the school after a teacher noticed the knife in TM's pocket. As is typical in Juvenile Court, the prosecutor agreed to give TM a "chance" to have the case dismissed so long as TM stays in school and does not get rearrested.
