College Student Defense

All criminal convictions can have a negative effect on a young person's future. They will show up on background checks run by employers, landlords, graduate schools, volunteer organizations and lenders. A conviction may also affect college or university scholarships, disqualifying you for federal financial aid and result in disqualification from sports and other activities. The student may be expelled if the offense is serious.

If your college-aged child has been charged with a crime, we recommend acting quickly to minimize the effect on his or her future. Speak with one of the attorneys at Green & Utter, P.A. We have the experience to protect your child's rights in any criminal case in New Hampshire. We can also advise you about school disciplinary hearings, which vary from school to school.

We Take A College Student's Future Very Seriously

It is not unusual for college students to make mistakes or use poor judgment, especially when under the influence of alcohol or drugs. One mistake should not ruin a student's future.

We represent young adults and students who are charged with on- and off-campus crimes such as:

  • Minor in possession of alcohol or underage drinking
  • DUI/DWI charges
  • Drug crimes, including marijuana possession
  • Sex offenses, including date rape
  • Shoplifting and other theft crimes
  • Assault and bar fights
  • Vandalism and criminal mischief

You can rely on our experience and our dedication to each client. Whether the charge is petty theft or aggravated sexual assault, we diligently prepare the case. We work closely with our clients to achieve the best result possible.

If you choose, we will take the case to trial. We are skilled trial attorneys who are well-known in courts throughout the state.
