Brighton Student Rights Lawyer

Attorney for College Students in the Boston Metro Area

If you are charged with a criminal offense while attending a university, then you may be facing the criminal court process and a disciplinary hearing. In order to avoid consequences on both fronts, you should make sure to retain a criminal defense attorney that can defend your rights to a jury and the hearing officers.

Common Types of Student Misconduct

Part of the normal human development of young men and women is learning about their bodies and learning what boundaries of behavior they are comfortable with surrounding alcohol, sex, and drugs. Students from good families may end up being accused of sex crimes and drug crimes that are not consistent with their character. I have represented students accused of sex crimes, drug crimes, terrorist acts, and violence. I also advise persons preparing disclosures to the Board of Bar Examiners.

If you are a student facing a criminal charge or disciplinary proceedings, I welcome your call. We will setup a confidential, in person meeting. Every student and every school is different. The collateral consequences for a college or graduate student are much greater than people that already have secured employment in their field. Often a misdemeanor criminal case can be fatal to job placement. You will be represented in criminal court and with your school by an experienced, zealous advocate.

Consequences of a Criminal Conviction in College

Those who are convicted of a crime in college are facing a number of serious penalties, including jail time, fines, probation, suspension of driver's license, and more. A conviction or action by the school could also result in refusal of admittance to post-graduate school, denial of employment, or professional licensure.

Even if the student is not found guilty in a criminal court, a disciplinary board could enact the following consequences:

  • Expulsion or suspension from college
  • Extra counseling or rehabilitative courses
  • Reprimand or warning on permanent record
