Crimes on College Campuses

Cited for Underage Drinking? Been Accused of Date Rape? Charged With Drug Possession?

Facing criminal charges while in college presents a number of serious issues that require fast action and an aggressive defense. Not only may you face suspension or expulsion from school and possible fines or jail time, but the potential consequences for your future are just as serious.

Receiving a mark on your criminal record can jeopardize future job opportunities, make it difficult to secure housing and even affect the chance of finishing your degree or pursuing grad school. If you are college student or the parent of a college student who is facing criminal charges, it is essential that you contact an experienced criminal defense attorney.
