High School Students
As you navigate your way through high school, it is not uncommon to sometimes
fall in with the wrong group of people. Peer pressure, parties, and even
friends can turn students on to some bad habits. Not only can a criminal
arrest be detrimental to a student's driving privileges, but the student
may also face suspension, exclusion from school functions including graduation,
and lose scholarships.
For some young people, college is one of the first times in their lives
that they are living independently, sometimes far from home, and learning
how to get by without the help of family. College parties, spring break
and the pressures of social interactions can have criminal consequences.
College students are often tried as adults, not as juveniles, so it is
important you work with an attorney if you are arrested.
Aggressive Criminal Defense
In the state of New York, students who are under the age of 21 but over
the age of 18 can be either tried in a juvenile court or in an adult court.
Depending on the circumstances of the arrest and what the arrest was for,
a prosecutor may decide to "make an example" out of a juvenile
by trying them at the adult level.
Driving under the influence,
drug crimes and
sex crimes are some of the most commonly charged crimes against students. Conviction
of any of these offenses could have a devastating effect on your life.
In order to protect yourself and avoid having to expunge records in the
future, it is imperative that the Law Office of Robert King be contacted
