Facing criminal charges while in college presents a number of serious issues that require fast action and an aggressive defense. Not only may you face suspension or expulsion from school and possible fines or jail time, but the potential consequences for your future are just as serious.
Receiving a mark on your criminal record can jeopardize future job opportunities, make it difficult to secure housing and even affect the chance of finishing your degree or pursuing grad school. If you are college student or the parent of a college student who is facing criminal charges, it is essential that you contact an experienced Albany criminal defense lawyer.
Consult with an attorney before making any statements to anyone — even if you think you’re simply explaining your side of the story. Regardless of whether you’re facing a DWI or accusations of date rape, underage drinking, drug possession, theft or assault, what you say can and will be used against you.
