College Students

There are many colleges and universities in Massachusetts, and it is not uncommon for college students to be arrested for various offenses. Being charged with a crime when you are a college student can have devastating consequences. Not only can having a criminal record ruin your chances of landing a job when you graduate, but being charged with a crime can also lead to consequences at your school such as loss of scholarship, exclusion from sports teams, and even expulsion. Having an attorney represent you at school disciplinary hearings is in your best interest – even though it is not a court, you still have rights that should be protected. In terms of the criminal charge you are facing, negotiating with the prosecution for alternative resolutions – community service, for example – is always a good option. As a former Boston prosecutor, Attorney Hinman can effectively work with law enforcement to protect your record and prevent you from getting a criminal record that can hinder you for the rest of your life.
