    We live in the state of New York. My 15 year old son has had a history with anger issues since he was 9. He assaulted a school administrator by spitting on them, and hitting them with his fist. He assaulted a police officer with his fist, slammed and kicked the officer. He was arrested and charged with assault/ assault on a police officer. He also had marijuana on him at the time of the arrest. I would like to know what will the court likely do? Charge him as an adult? Will he go to a regular jail? I've been told he will definitely be sent to jail for the assault on an officer.
