Charges Against College Students

Defending College Students’ Rights, Prospects And Freedom

College is a time when young adults experiment with new things and experience mature conflicts for the first time. Some students may encounter a brush with law enforcement.

If your adult child faces criminal charge or is under investigation, they still have an opportunity for defense. Wicks Law Firm, PLLC, has the resources and skill to provide a serious legal defense for students.

Our attorneys represent college students who attend the University of Rochester, the Rochester Institute of Technology, The College at Brockport, Monroe Community College, St. John Fisher College and other schools throughout upstate New York. We welcome inquiries from out-of-state families who need a local defense lawyer for their son or daughter.

Don’t Let Criminal Charges Jeopardize Their Future

As college and university students are still learning about life and adulthood, they may make a mistake, fall in with the wrong crowd or simply get caught in the wrong place at the wrong time. The implications cannot be overstated. In addition to court penalties and a criminal record, some criminal convictions can also result in suspension/expulsion, loss of scholarships, ineligibility for financial aid, or disqualification from certain programs and careers.

Prompt intervention is important to influence charging decisions and muster a defense. We have defended college students and young adults on a wide variety of criminal matters, including:

  • Drug possession, drug possession with intent and drug trafficking charges
  • Alcohol offenses, such as DUI, underage drinking, disorderly conduct or using fake IDs to obtain alcohol
  • Assault or domestic violence accusations involving a romantic partner or roommate
  • Theft, burglary and shoplifting
  • Vandalism
  • Sexual assault

At Wicks Law Firm, PLLC, we do not want your child to suffer unnecessary consequences that could impact their careers, personal life and freedom. Instead, our mission is to successfully protect their rights during the investigation, trial, appeals process and beyond.

In addition to criminal court proceedings, we have represented college students in parallel administrative proceedings at the school, such as Title IX disciplinary hearings.
