Fort Collins College Student Defense Lawyer
A Fort Collins college student defense lawyer is probably the last person you would expect you will need for your son or daughter. Attending a college or university is supposed to be an exciting new chapter in your child’s life. The freedom of moving from home for the first time is exciting. The independence is a powerful experience. However, as we know college campuses are not just about academics, there’s opportunities to party too. And with this comes the risk of law enforcement involvement.
Sometimes, college students find themselves targets of criminal investigations, resulting in them being charged with very severe criminal offenses and penalties. Some students can even be charged as teens. As a college student charged with a crime you want to consider immediate legal representation. It’s of utmost importance that you construct a solid defense and speak with an experienced attorney as soon as possible.
On-campus police officers, city police officers, and state police know that college campuses are prime targets for drug busts, underage drinking, DUI offenses, and as horrific as it may sound, sexual assault crimes. For any student accused of a crime on a college campus, the consequences can be life-altering. In addition, it can affect your college eligibility. I am dedicated to helping students protect their rights and provide them the resources they need to move forward.
Most commonly, crimes on college campuses involve:
- Sexual assault
- Drug offenses/search and seizure
- Drinking and driving (DUI and DWAI)
- Underage drinking
- Marijuana possession and/or consumption
