College Students Charged with Crimes

Protecting Your Future

If you are a college student and you are charged with a crime, you face three legal challenges. You must deal with the consequences of:

  • The criminal charge itself
  • Possible college disciplinary action, which could result in your expulsion from campus housing or your college
  • A possible criminal record that can harm your career prospects and employability

One thing is clear — you need effective legal representation to deal with these challenges. Even a misdemeanor charge for underage drinking or being caught with a small amount of marijuana can adversely affect your life for many years to come.

Helping You Overcome Your Legal Challenges

Attorney Lee Ann Breading has over 25 years of experience in criminal law. She understands the criminal justice system in Denton County and the Dallas-Ft. Worth area, and how to mount an effective defense for college students charged with crimes.

Fortunately, many college students can avoid conviction in cases involving marijuana possession, minor in possession of alcohol, DUI and other misdemeanor crimes. Our firm has a great deal of experience in helping students obtain pretrial diversion outcomes. Such an outcome can enable you to avoid conviction and other penalties. Depending on the circumstances of your case, we may be able to help you get an expunction or non-disclosure, which can prevent future employers from learning about your arrest.

Advising You in Disciplinary Hearings

Lee Ann Breading can also advise you regarding any potential disciplinary actions taken by your college. Though she cannot physically represent you in a hearing, Ms. Breading can advise you how to best respond to the questions you may be asked. She can also help you formulate a written response in disciplinary proceedings that do not involve an actual hearing.
