While Dallas school officials are saying they don’t yet see the influence of Mexican drug cartels in their schools, the Feds and the Texas Department of Public Safety are cautioning parents to be aware.
As reported in the Dallas Morning News is the case of Rosalio Reta and his teen friends who were recruited as early as age 13 to be hitmen for the violent Mexican drug cartel, the Zetas.
Officials know that the cartels reach into stateside gangs for assistance on this side of the border and urge parents, particularly in border communities, to be aware of the possibility of them reaching directly into the schools.
While becoming a teen hitman for a Mexican drug cartel isn’t very likely, it is possible. Even more possible, however, are Texas teens getting involved in the local drug trade or even simply drug use.
For a child, getting involved in drugs can be a gateway towards a life of crime and unhappiness. If caught early your child may be getting a reality check within the Texas juvenile court system. Hopefully, if this is the case, you have an attorney experienced in juvenile matters looking out for the best interest of your child.
In many juvenile cases I see the parents go through a stage of denial thinking their child is not capable of the things they are accused of. Soon after they realize that yes, their child probably did make some mistakes but wonder how they can right the wrongs and ensure their son or daughter doesn’t get caught up in the system and the cycle that so often repeats itself.
Having a group of concerned adults on their side, a juvenile can make a change for the better. Whether your child is accused of a drug charge or simple status violations, I can help.
No one wants to see their children get into trouble. However, once your child is exposed to the system, the important thing is seeing that it works for their benefit, not their demise.
