College Student Criminal Defense: An Experienced Defense Lawyer Protecting Your Future Opportunities

For many young people, going off to college is a time of new experiences, opportunities, and independence. With this newfound independence comes personal responsibility. When moments of youthful indiscretion result in run-ins with the law, the seriousness of the situation may be lost on young people.

Whether you're a student who has been arrested or a concerned parent, the loss of scholarships, ineligibility for extracurricular programs, eviction from student housing and a compromised future are all potential consequences that require serious and timely attention.

A Lawyer Who Is There for You When Your Future Is on the Line

Making mistakes is just part of growing up. However, that doesn't mean criminal actions don't have lasting consequences. Perhaps you had a few too many drinks and got behind the wheel of a car. Or maybe you were arrested after getting into a fight at a bar after a football or basketball game. Regardless of the circumstances, it's important to hire a criminal defense attorney who knows how to build defense strategies tailored to issues facing college students.

Common types of college student crimes include:

  • Driving under the influence (DUI)
  • Marijuana possession and other drug crimes
  • Traffic violations
  • Providing alcohol to minors
  • Underage drinking/minor in possession
  • Rape and other sex crimes
  • Theft crimes
  • Vandalism
  • Assault and other violent crimes
