Common Offenses Affecting College Students
Young adults – especially in a college environment – are prone to make many mistakes. Whether you were in the wrong place at the wrong time or you simply made a mistake, you need aggressive representation if you are facing criminal accusations.
As a student, you may have to undergo more than a criminal investigation. Your college or university may choose to report the incident to the Student Judicial Affairs and initiate a disciplinary proceeding.
Crimes commonly associated with college students include:
- Underage drinking
- Violation of campus codes of conduct
- Public intoxication
- Furnishing alcohol to minors
- Non-criminal violations
- Petty theft or shoplifting
- Disorderly conduct
- Fake IDs
- Violent crimes
- Assault and battery
- Sex crimes
If you have been accused and charged for a crime while attending university, your future could be on the line. Besides fines and jail time, possible consequences of a conviction include ineligibility for loans, scholarships, or financial aid, and even expulsion from school.
To avoid these and other penalties, be sure to put a skilled criminal defense team on your side as soon as possible. Our experienced college disciplinary hearing lawyers in Gainesville can help you navigate the complicated process and fight to keep your academic standing.
