Ok basically at the start of 2014 my 15 year old daughter gave a statement on a fight she saw down by the beach. The police here in Australia never contacted me or her guardian asking for permission so I dont know if it is a valid statement nor was I even aware that this had taken place until today. Anyways she got handed a court summons by the police and has to go into court to give her statement ....she is now 17 in her last year of school and cannot recall the event or who it involved and looked blank when reading her own statement that she got given today. The police said if she fails to comply and go into the court house she will be arrested. She is extremely upset because she will need to take 2 days off of school to go in an give her statement and is currently in VCE but besides that she wanted to know if she could say she cannot recall the event and would therefore conclude that her statement is invalid and cannot be used.
