College Students Charged With Assault and Battery

Altercations between college students often occur, whether it be at a party after a few beers or between roommates who never got along. However, there are also instances when seemingly insignificant arguments turn into physical altercations, and depending on the facts of the incident, both individuals may wind up facing battery charges. Many are unaware, but one may also face assault charges for even the threat of violence.

College Students Charged WIth Racing & Reckless Driving

One common connotation with all young people is irresponsible behavior behind the wheel of a vehicle. One of the most common versions of that is reckless driving and racing. Seeing who can make it to the next traffic light first may seem like a harmless game between friends, but the potential danger commuters and pedestrians are put in is why law enforcement are so tough on offenders.

College Students Facing Drug Charges

The first time many people experiment with drugs is in college, but being a college student doesn’t make you above the law. Police officers will still arrest you and prosecutors will press charges if you are caught in possession of marijuana or any other illegal drug as a college student. Prescription pills and over-the-counter drugs are no exception.

College Students Arrested for DUI

Alcohol is a mainstay throughout college parties. No matter if you planned to drink and drive or not, by doing so you make yourself susceptible to a DUI conviction. Driving under the influence of drugs is also illegal, and an officer suspects you of doing so can have you arrested and jailed.

Sexual Assualt Charges for College Students

Sexual assault cases commonly plague college campuses. Although the facts of the individual incidents may vary, they all share the theme of someone feeling as if they were taking advantage of sexually against their will. Serious repercussions come as a result of a conviction for sexual assault charges including mandatory sex offender registration.
