College Students Facing Drug Charges
College students can learn valuable lessons, both in the classroom and in the social milieu of campus life. Sometimes these lessons can take on a life of their own, particularly when there is the potential for a mistake to have far-reaching consequences.
A criminal conviction against a young person is highly problematic because it can affect his or her future job prospects and educational opportunities. Sometimes it can affect financial aid and lead to other difficulties in the near term.
If your son or daughter has been charged with a drug offense, he or she needs strong legal representation right away; he or she should not talk to law enforcement about the charges until you have obtained legal advice. It is essential to have an experienced attorney who can help you understand what rights and options you have.
