ALBANY, Ore. -- Parents of a 12-year-old Albany middle schooler are unhappy their son was interviewed by police without their permission, but both the school and the Albany Police Department say permission isn't required in many instances.
Administrators at Calapooia Middle School say, however, school policy wasn't followed when a detective interviewed the boy without the parents first being notified by the school.
The Albany Democrat-Herald says it was contacted by the boy's mother, Kerri Evans, about the Sept. 18 interview.
Evans says her son was labeled as a suspect in a May incident involving a neighborhood child who doesn't attend Calapooia.
Evans says she worked the situation out with the other child's mother, and knew nothing of a police investigation until a detective showed up at her door after the interview.
