In the Matter of J.B.J.
Texas Court of Appeals
86 S.W.3d 810 (2002)
Police detectives went to the school of J.B.J. (defendant), a juvenile, and asked to speak with him about a report alleging he had engaged in criminal activity. Shortly after one of the detectives told J.B.J. about the allegations contained in the report, J.B.J. confessed to the allegations while still in the school office. Following his confession, J.B.J. gave the school-resource officer his home phone number but told the officer his mother would not be home. The school-resource officer then began making phone calls to try to reach J.B.J.’s mother. The detectives took J.B.J. into custody and left the school while the school-resource officer continued her efforts to reach J.B.J.’s parents. After unsuccessfully trying to contact J.B.J.’s mother multiple times, the school-resource officer then attempted to contact J.B.J.’s father at work. Approximately an hour and a half after J.B.J. was taken into custody, the school-resource officer was able to speak to J.B.J.’s father to tell him that J.B.J. had been taken into custody. After he was adjudicated delinquent, J.B.J. appealed.
