The police do not have to give Miranda if the person is not under arrest. And in Michigan anyone 17 years old is charged as an adult.

They can question her, best to advise not to talk until a parent is present. It never does any good to talk anyways.

    Yes, school officials can question your children without your knowledge or consent. Otherwise, it would be impossible for the school to ever investigate allegations of parental abuse. Miranda warnings only have to be given while in police custody. You can have a local criminal defense attorney review the matter to see if there are any violations that can be argued.
