Martin said the law allows for certain exceptions for the following circumstances:
He said, on Friday and Saturday’s minor’s are allowed in public, during curfew hours, if they are being accompanied by a parent, guardian or other persons having legal custody.
Additionally, he said, any minor who is employed has 30 minutes from the closing time to get home, and must be able to provide written statement from the employer verifying employment and work hours.
