If your minor aged sister resides with you and you signed a recognizant release for her to be released from police custody will her parents be required to attend the juvenile court hearing?
The person who signed for the juveniles released and by doing so
guaranteed her appearance in court is responsible to see that she
does show up on the date of her hearing. If that person is not the
legal guardian of the minor (in most states he or she would need to
be) the parent(s) or legal guardian will be required to attend the
hearing unless the juvenile has already been deemed a "ward of the
state" in which case a GAL or other representative will be
appointed to represent he or she.
