Newton College Student Defense

Newton is home to some excellent universities and colleges, including Boston College. Most Boston College students live in Newton, Chestnut Hill, Allston, Brighton, or Brookline. Being charged with a crime while in college can have lasting effects, and impact your ability to graduate and find employment. Some of the more common offenses that students at Boston College and other institutions have been charged with in the past are Drunk Driving/DUI/OUI, Motor Vehicle Offenses such as Uninsured or Unregistered Motor Vehicle, Shoplifting or Theft, Disorderly Conduct, Disturbing the Peace, Minor in Possession of Alcohol, Providing a Minor with Alcohol, Assault and Battery, and Using or Producing False Identification. Often times there is both a criminal court proceeding, as well as a school disciplinary proceeding. Attorney Hinman will negotiate with the school, local law enforcement, and the District Attorney’s Office to achieve an outcome that does not involve a criminal record, and will not affect her client’s ability to go on to lead a productive life after graduation.
