Two weeks prior to September 13, 2009, the defendant’s step daughter ran away from home. On September 13, 2009, the child was found by officers of the Sunrise Police Department trespassing in an abandoned home. The child has an extensive juvenile criminal history as well as a history of running away from home. The child was taken to the Sunrise Police Department and the Defendant and his wife were contacted to pick-up the child, which they did. Upon arrival at the Police Department, the child refused to leave with the Defendant and his wife, the child’s biological mother. The Defendant and his wife were advised by Sunrise Police that they would be arrested if they left the premises. The Defendant and his wife left the premises and told police to call the child’s father, which they did. The Defendant’s exited the police department parking lot in their car and were arrested for Contributing to the Delinquency of a Minor. The Firm was able to provide the State with proof from child services that the child was ungovernable. All charges were dropped.
