Helping College Students Facing Criminal Charges

When students begin college and enjoy newfound freedom, better judgment can lose out to overconsumption or youthful poor decision-making. When these decisions take a serious turn, resulting in criminal charges, there is a lot on the line.

Students and parents have made a significant investment, both financially and personally, and all of that is potentially in jeopardy, even with a misdemeanor. A conviction could cause you to lose your scholarships or even be suspended. Also, a criminal record makes it difficult to get a job after school.
