College Campus Crimes

With so many colleges and universities in Boston and throughout Massachusetts, local criminal defense lawyers see many college students who have been accused of crimes. There is a wide variety of criminal charges that college students often find themselves facing, and the potential consequences and punishments will vary. Many college campus crimes are related to drinking or drug-use. Common examples of college campus crimes include:

  • Drunk driving/DUI/OUI
  • Drug crimes
  • Theft crimes
  • Sex crimes (often "date rape" or sexual assault)
  • Assault and battery
  • Web and cyber crimes

Any college student who has been charged with a crime needs to seek the advice of a college student criminal defense attorney as soon as possible. Your continued education, career, and post-graduate opportunities are at risk, and your future is at stake. Having an attorney representing you from beginning to end is the smartest way to safeguard all that you have achieved thus far, as well as that which you wish to accomplish down the line.

The skill and expertise of an experienced lawyer makes a world of a difference in all criminal cases, including college crimes cases. College student criminal defense can be complex, even where the charged crime is not the most serious of all offenses. For example, many students will find themselves simultaneously involved in both criminal proceedings and school disciplinary proceedings. Additionally, students' rights, including those related to searches and seizures, can vary depending on the public or private nature of the college or university, the person who carried out the search, etc. An experienced lawyer can assist in navigating these situations and provide the advice necessary to protect your chances for success.
