Can a special education student be arrested at school?

Ask a Lawyerwhat's this?

Can a "special" Ed student who has an IEP be arrested in school? I was told by the school psychologist at the beginning of the year that my child would never be arrested, but would have to pay a consequence for an inappropriate action. Could you please help me with this? He admitted after looking at her entire school background that she was a special Ed student way back, but no one had ever picked it up.


It is not illegal but normally he would not be arrested; if you inform the DA, the DA should drop it...
