Student crimes: From harassment to theft

On Behalf of | Jan 2, 2015 | Domestic Violence |

There are thousands upon thousands of college students in Colorado, all of who are looking to have a good time while getting their degree. While most are able to avoid trouble with the law, there are times when students go overboard and end up in hot water.

It is not uncommon for younger adults to be targeted by police, as those in positions of authority often believe that students are up to no good.

Some of the most common student crimes include the following:

— Assault

— Theft

— Sexual offenses

— Burglary

— Drug crimes

— Domestic violence

— Driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs

— Harassment

While students are not always worried about the consequences of their actions, the same cannot be said for parents. It is not uncommon for parents to lay awake at night, hoping their college age child doesn’t drink and drive or get tangled up in a bar fight.

Unfortunately, even the most well-respected college students can make mistakes from time to time. This can lead to an arrest, followed by a long and often challenging legal process.

When it comes to handling college student crimes, there are things that a person should and should not be doing. Not only do students have to contend with the legal system, but they also have to be concerned about the type of action that the school will take.

If a student is arrested for any type of crime, this person, as well as their parents, may want to speak with a criminal defense attorney who is experienced in this area of the law.
