Types of Charges Our Mercer County College Crime Lawyers Can Assist With

For a college student who has gotten into trouble with the law, the criminal process in New Jersey may be mysterious and frightening. You have good reason to be concerned. The consequences of criminal charges and convictions are significant enough to derail your life.

Having our experienced college student criminal defense attorneys in Mercer County, NJ, on your side can help you better understand the charges and penalties you’re faced with and what to expect from the legal process. Examples of the kinds of charges our attorneys defend college students against include the following.

Alcohol and Drug Crimes

Underage drinking is common on and around college campuses, but that doesn’t mean charges for this offense are no big deal. In New Jersey, underage alcohol possession and consumption is illegal. Serving alcohol to people who are underage, using a fake identification card, and otherwise engaging in disorderly conduct or any other crimes along with underage alcohol use may result in more severe charges and harsher penalties. College students should be aware that they can also get in legal trouble for underage use of other legal substances in New Jersey, such as tobacco and cannabis.

Possessing or distributing illegal drugs and other controlled substances on campus may get you charged with drug crimes, which can carry serious penalties. Getting behind the wheel while impaired by any substance, legal or otherwise, could result in DUI offenses.

Harassment and Hazing

For many students living on campus, college is the first exposure to being in charge of your own schedule and away from consistent adult supervision. Students often live in close proximity to each other, sharing residence hall facilities, apartments, and even individual rooms. Disagreements and rivalries can arise that may eventually lead to behavior that constitutes harassment. Allegations of repeated harassment may put you at risk of facing stalking charges.

Hazing is a problem that’s especially relevant on college campuses. Any act that subjects new initiates to physical or mental abuse, mistreatment, or harm may constitute hazing. Hazing also encompasses coercing the consumption of any substance that could negatively affect the person’s health and causing an initiate to break any law. Under New Jersey’s hazing law, defendants charged with hazing crimes may face either a disorderly persons offense or an indictable offense or felony, depending on the severity of the allegations.

Assault and Sex Crimes

Negative interactions among students sometimes go beyond harassment to encompass physical assault. Assault allegations on college campuses often involve fights, attacks, and sexual assaults. If you’re facing assault or sex crime charges, you could be sentenced to a long prison term. You should speak to Mercer County college crime lawyers as soon as possible to protect your legal rights.

Vehicle-Related Charges

College students may also face charges for vehicle-related violations. Careless and reckless driving constitute traffic offenses with serious consequences, including potential jail time. If you injured or killed someone in a car accident, you could face criminal charges like assault by auto or vehicular homicide.

Our college student criminal defense attorneys in Mercer County, NJ, can help you make sense of the charges you’re facing and put together a plan for your legal defense.
