College student crimes are common, often serious

| Mar 4, 2016 | Criminal Defense |

College students have a tendency to get out of control from time to time. While most are able to do so within the limits of the law, others push things a bit too far. For this reason, it is not uncommon for a college student to be arrested for some type of crime.

If you find yourself in this position or if you are attempting to help your college-age child, it is important to understand your rights and how the legal system works.

Remember this: Being convicted of a crime during your college years can have an impact on the rest of your life. For instance, it may make it difficult to secure a job in the future.

Some of the most common criminal charges against college students include driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, assault, burglary, theft, sexual offenses, domestic violence and drug possession.

College students are often taken advantage of because of their young age. These people don’t know if they are being treated fairly by law enforcement, which only makes their situation worse.
