When young people are in college, they are taking their first steps into the world and usually it is their first experience with independence. Many are just beginning to develop the faculties and experiences that most of us take for granted to help us navigate the complexities of our lives.
That lack of experience can lead to mistakes and errors of judgment that can ruin their future.
If you have a college student who is facing criminal charges, you probably already have a very good idea of what is at risk. Consequences of a criminal conviction for a college student can include:
- Academic consequences (expulsion, suspension)
- Loss of financial aid
