How to best handle a college student crime

When a college student commits a crime, he or she is faced with a variety of potential consequences. In addition to dealing with the legal system, it could lead to punishment from the college or university.

Some of the most common college student crimes include:

-- Assault

-- Burglary

-- Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs

-- Drug possession

-- Domestic violence

-- Sexual offenses, such as rape

-- Theft

Each type of crime is treated differently by the court system. The same holds true with the way the institution deals with the situation.

It doesn't matter if you are a student faced with the consequences of a crime or a parent attempting to help your child, there are steps you can take to improve the chance of a positive outcome.

Remember, you have to separately deal with the court as well as any college disciplinary board or panel. In some cases, the school will want the court process to unwind before they decide if they are going to take any action.

College students make mistakes from time to time. Unfortunately, this can land them in trouble with the law. Potential consequences include jail time, fines, community service and suspension from school.

If you or your child has been charged with a student crime, it is a good idea to immediately learn more about the situation and the steps to come.
