Denton Criminal Defense for College Students

Helping to Protect Your Future in Criminal Cases

You slowly open your eyes; look around; and realize you are not in your dorm room or at your buddy’s frat house. In fact, it looks almost like you are in a holding cell. But, that can’t be right. You were just at the football game with your buddies 10 minutes ago. The game was tied 10-10; State just muffed a punt, and the stadium was packed. And then, it gets a little fuzzy. Slowly, and painstakingly, you look around the room again. Oh boy. Something is definitely not right here. You think you may get sick, but the wave of nausea passes – for now. It begins to dawn on you... you are in fact, in a holding cell.

OK, so the story is a bit dramatic. But at the same time, this exact scenario plays out time and time again across college and university campuses each and every weekend. You know that a tiny lapse in judgment can lead to disastrous consequences; especially when that lapse of judgment develops into a crime or some sort of criminal activity. POOF! Future GONE. Just like that.

Texas Does Not Give a Pass to College Students

Texas is tough on all crimes, regardless of age, background, etc. This is particularly true when it comes to drug crimes – including those committed by college students. Associated charges can range from simple misdemeanors to high-level felonies. If a student is charged with selling marijuana to another student, the penalties are even more severe.

*Even though some states have legalized marijuana, Texas has not done so. It is so important for everyone, especially college students, to understand the distinction. Marijuana possession charges are very common, and penalties may be significant.
