As a college student, you may encounter legal charges such as:
- Possession of a controlled substance
- Possession of marijuana
- Possession of dangerous drugs
- Sexual assault
- A&M Disciplinary Hearings
- Other serious crimes
The Bryan / College Station area has approximately 55,000 college students
attending either Blinn College or Texas A&M University. Each year,
hundreds of students are arrested and charged with crimes ranging from
possession of marijuana to intoxication manslaughter. Being arrested and
convicted of even a minor misdemeanor offense can have devastating consequences
to a young person's future. Even deferred adjudication, in which a
person is placed on probation but not convicted, remains on a person's
record and can be found in simple searches by prospective employers.
Strong Defense to Protect Your Future
Involvement in the criminal justice system can have other collateral consequences
that can do much damage. Conviction of certain drug offenses while receiving
financial aid can result in the denial of future financial aid. Conviction
of DWI or possession of marijuana can result in the suspension of a student's
driver's license. Some offenses, if charged, can result in a student
being expelled from school, even if the charges have not been resolved.
Because so much is riding on how a case can turn out, our team spares
no effort to thoroughly investigate each case, research every credible
legal issue, and effectively advocate for the most favorable result.
