A 17-year-old Bayside girl and her parents are scheduled to appear in Municipal Court together in September after her parents rescheduled the court appearance for the girl's curfew violation four times.
On Oct. 29, 2011, the then 16-year-old was cited for a curfew violation. Her municipal court date was scheduled for Nov. 15, but her mother called to reschedule due to an illness in the family. The new date was set for Dec. 6.
No one appeared in court that day, and dates were rescheduled two more times before her father appeared; the judge said she just needed to avoid any trouble with police and get her grades up. A new date was set for July 3 to review the case and her grades, but that hearing was rescheduled again when her mother called to say they had a family emergency.
After reviewing the events in the case, the judge issued two citations for contempt to the girl's parents. They now all have the same court date, Sept. 4. The officer delivered the citations to their home on July 19 and advised the dad that girl's case would be handled on the same court night and that the three of them would all need to appear together.
