Don't Let An Offense In College Wreak Havoc On Your Young Adult Life

College is supposed to be a time of adventure and discovery. Unfortunately, far too many young adults find themselves in the back of a police car or in jail because they had the wrong adventure.

At the Law Offices of Patrick F. Lauer, Jr. LLC, we understand the serious consequences one wrong decision can have on a young person's life. We see it with juvenile crime cases and we see it happen to college students across Pennsylvania.

We know the type of strong defense it takes to reduce the penalties associated with certain crimes and how to help young adults protect their futures from potentially damaging convictions.

The Charges You're Up Against Don't Have To Ruin You

There are a number of charges that college students find themselves facing:

  • Drug offenses — Associated with everything from possession of controlled substances, possession of prescription drugs, possession of drug paraphernalia to distribution or sale of an illegal drug
  • Alcohol-related crimes — Including underage drinking, drinking and driving, and giving alcohol to a minor
  • Sex-related offenses — Such as consensual sex with a minor, rape, sexual assault and sexting
  • Violent crimes — Including domestic violence and getting into bar fights

Whether you or your son or daughter is facing a misdemeanor or felony charge, they are facing a serious situation that must be addressed immediately. The more time prosecutors have to build a case against a defendant, the more leverage they have during plea negotiations that don't also work out in a young person's favor.

If you accept the wrong deal or plead guilty to an offense you did not commit, you could face a life filled with legal and societal obstacles that could brand you, cause you to lose your scholarship, miss out on work opportunities or be prohibited from renting a property.
