Defending Criminal Charges On Campus
Being in college is a fun and exciting time. I’m a graduate of Indiana University of Pennsylvania, and I remember my time there fondly. Unfortunately, students sometimes find themselves in situations that may lead to criminal charges. For many students, college is the first time they are away from home, and it allows them to take more risks. Sometimes these risks can lead to bad decisions, which can result in criminal charges.
I work on campus crime cases because I believe young people shouldn’t be defined by one mistake. You want to start your professional career with a clean record, and my goal at Robert S. Muir, Attorney at Law, is to help you keep your record as clean as possible given your situation. I have been working criminal cases since 1991 and work hard to defend my clients.
Common Campus Crimes
Most students think they will never be charged with a crime. However, mistakes can happen to anyone at any time, and if you are facing criminal charges, you need a lawyer who will defend you. Common campus crimes include:
- Underage drinking
- Drug charges
Often, students think their charges are minor and will go away on their own. However, even the smallest infraction can become a major issue if not handled properly. You need an experienced defense attorney on your side.
