Defense Lawyers For College-Related Criminal Charges
Whether it was centered on a mistake, misunderstanding or lapse in judgment, a poor decision can have a devastating ripple effect throughout a student’s life. Different universities follow different policies and punishments can vary greatly. Penalties such as fines, incarceration, community service, loss of university privileges or expulsion can depend on a wide range of factors. Factors that might be taken into account are the student’s age, prior history, severity of the offense and other aggravating circumstances.
We can help students facing a broad array of offenses, such as:
- Disorderly conduct
- Underage possession of alcohol
- Possession of a controlled substance
- Possession of a fraudulent ID
Whether at a party, a campus bar, a sporting event or even tailgating, college students are surrounded by tempting or unsavory elements. A poor choice in any of these situations can lead to serious consequences. Campus police are typically aware of large parties and will casually wait for students to make a mistake. Do not hesitate to contact a skilled lawyer.
