College Student Crime

The Most Common College Student Offenses

Away from home for the first time, and with a new measure of freedom, it can be easy for college students to get into trouble. Canan Law is a firm based in St. Augustine, Florida, that has years of experience with criminal defense for college student crimes. Our city has several colleges – among them are Flagler College and Saint Joseph College of Florida. Since we are in an area with so many colleges, we see many students face criminal charges. The most common charges are for:

  • Underage drinking
  • Possession of controlled substances, including marijuana
  • Disorderly conduct
  • Theft
  • Sexual assault
  • Driving under the influence (DUI)

We have represented many college students against criminal offenses and are uniquely able to support their needs.

A Momentary Mistake With Lasting Consequences

Though the offenses listed above may seem simple, they can have far-reaching effects. These can include fines, probation, jail and even a permanent record – all consequences that might hinder your future. That is why you need representation that understands what you are facing.

At Canan Law, we have decades of combined experience. We have successfully represented many college students of various offenses, and we have found that we are most successful when we devise an individualized strategy for each client.
