Parents of Arizona college students far from home deserve the reassurance that a son or daughter will receive skilled local defense representation if he or she has run afoul of the law.
College-enrolled youngsters, especially underage freshman and sophomores enjoying their first taste of freedom, can allow behavior outside the classroom to get out of hand. A teenager’s false sense of invincibility can translate to wild parties, drug and alcohol use, a drunk driving arrest, a property crime, a disorderly conduct charge, violent crime or sex crime.
Nothing has changed from this standpoint either: parents worry. They need to know that when legal trouble arises, an experienced and sympathetic defense lawyer can handle every detail of a criminal case and spare them the worry and costs of travel to be with their minor child at a difficult time.
A versatile criminal and juvenile crimes defense attorney can also advocate for a young client before a student conduct board at school if expulsion or suspension is a possibility. Reinstatement to school is every bit as important in its own way as the need for reduction or dismissal of charges, or a lesser alternative punishment in the event of a conviction. A college or university student’s representative should do whatever he or she can to keep such an outcome off a client’s record, affording the accused a second chance while still sending a strong message that lawlessness at any level, at any age, is unacceptable.
