Defending College Students Against Criminal Charges

For anyone, a criminal charge or conviction can cause severe damage to their reputation and significantly impact their life. For college students, a conviction can ruin the educational and career opportunities that they have worked so hard for. Working with a criminal defense attorney with experience defending college students can help prevent serious repercussions.

Attorney Amanda Adams has defended students from local Iowa colleges, including Drake University, Simpson College, Iowa State and Grand View University. She is well-positioned to assist students in both Iowa and Illinois, with office locations in Johnston and Crystal Lake. She offers over 15 years of experience, so when you work with the Law Offices of Amanda T. Adams PLLC, you can trust her to protect the interests of you or your college-aged child.

Don’t Let A Mistake Ruin Your Future

Attending college or university is supposed to open doors for the future. However, when a college student is arrested and charged with a crime, the impact can be devastating. With no parents or curfew to follow, it is unsurprising that many students unwittingly get into trouble with drugs, alcohol and other related offenses.

Attorney Adams can help you with a variety of criminal charges, including:

  • Disorderly conduct
  • Public intoxication
  • Assault
  • Vandalism
  • Shoplifting
  • DWIs
  • Drug crimes

Aside from the standard penalties of these crimes, including jail time, community service, probation and expensive fines, a conviction can greatly impact a student’s college career. A criminal record may make it more difficult to obtain financial aid, find housing and can prevent a student from getting a job in the future.

Don’t Hesitate To Take Steps To Protect Yourself

If you or your child faces a criminal conviction while in college, don’t hesitate to contact an experienced criminal defense attorney. The earlier you reach out for help, the better your chance of obtaining your desired outcome and presenting a successful defense. Contact the Law Offices of Amanda T.
