We have helped countless college students at universities throughout the state. We understand the stress and pressure associated with getting arrested for DUI or drugs, or for being charged with underage consumption. We know about the embarrassment that can come with being charged with a sex crime.
And we understand money is often a concern – after all, we were college students once, too. We urge you to remain polite and remain silent. Do not make any admissions to law enforcement. Do not provide any statements.
It will not help your cause. If things have progressed to that point, you are unlikely to help your cause; the officer is simply gathering evidence of your guilt. Please contact our office for a confidential consultation to discuss your rights.
Like charges faced by college students, juvenile charges in Auburn can have a lasting impact, including an inability to obtain scholarships or certain forms of financial aid, denied admission into college, problems joining the military, and issues obtaining employment due to a criminal record.
As Auburn juvenile defense attorneys, we understand the need to protect teenagers who are facing criminal charges and to make sure their rights are protected throughout the process. Too often, parents think such charges will magically disappear in adulthood. Being convicted of a crime as a juvenile can have a lasting impact. They should never be made to go it alone.
Likewise, adults facing charges can suffer serious repercussions, including jail time, fines and court costs, and probation. Too often, adults see probation as a way out. For far too many, it is a trap that keeps them in the criminal justice system far past the time they should have been finished paying for a crime.
It’s not unusual for a defendant familiar with the system to choose to complete a jail sentence rather than to attempt to complete a lengthy period of probation. And typically, you will be forfeiting your rights to contest the underlying criminal charges. So a probation violation – such as missed curfew, employment issues or a failed drug test – can result in your being immediately sentenced with little or no chance to mount a defense.
Whether a juvenile, a college student or an adult, we believe you deserve immediate access to experienced legal assistance. Don’t go it alone.
