Student Crimes

Students who have committed a crime are facing charges twofold: at the state or federal criminal level and the campus level. At the state criminal level, a student can be facing life in prison compared to expulsion from the school where they are attending. In today’s world, student’s education is just as important as their freedom. Students are taught today that without an education they cannot be successful. So, what happens when a student’s opportunity to obtain an education is taken away because of something they have done that lead to charges at a state level and an investigation at their respective school.

There are several different types of crimes that we see committed by high school and college-age individuals. The most common ones are: minor in possession, driving under the influence, open intoxication, fake IDs, retail fraud, and campus sexual assault.

The thing is, most students are unaware or have little or no knowledge that their high school or college have policies in place for situations when a student is accused or charged with a crime. In the same breath, students have the same constitutional rights awarded to them when faced with an investigation or campus trial as they do when faced with state or federal charges brought against them.

Just because an investigation is being done, does not mean a student is not awarded their constitutional rights such as their right to an attorney. Before, talking, or agreeing to any such investigation or campus trial, student needs to take the proper precautions and retain themselves an attorney to assist them throughout the whole process.
