Most Common Crime on College Campuses

While there are many different types of offenses a college student may be arrested for both on and off campus, one of the most commonly charged crimes is underage drinking and driving. Charges of underage driving while intoxicated are levied against an individual who is over the age of 18 but under the age of 21. In New York and the entire United States, the legal drinking age is 21, and if you are caught operating a vehicle while intoxicated with even a very small amount of alcohol in your system, you may be facing serious penalties. Because most college students are over the age of 18, if you are arrested for any offense, you will most likely not be tried as a juvenile but rather face adult criminal court.
