Stamford CT College Campus Crimes Defense Attorney

Connecticut College Student Defense Lawyer Serving Norwalk and Fairfield

Stamford Crimes on Campus Attorney

An arrest and conviction while a college student can leave you with a permanent criminal record, result in expulsion from school, impact your ability to find a job later in life, and effect your eligibility for student loans. At the Connecticut Law Offices of Daniel P. Weiner, we represent college students who have been arrested on misdemeanor and felony charges.

Depending on your criminal record, we may be able to convince the court to reduce the charges or sentence against you. For less serious offenses, you may qualify for an alternative sentencing program which requires community service, counseling, and usually a fine. In cases involving serious felony charges, our office has the resources necessary to conduct our own investigation and challenge the evidence against you.

We represent students from University of Connecticut (UConn), Norwalk Community College, University of Bridgeport, Sacred Heart University, and other colleges throughout Connecticut.

Regardless of whether you're a college student or the parent of one, contact Connecticut criminal defense attorney Daniel P. Weiner today to schedule a free, confidential consultation to discuss your case.

Misdemeanor and Felony Charges - Crime and College Students

Criminal defense attorney Daniel P. Weiner counsels and represents college students arrested for committing the following kinds of crime:

  • DUI
  • Drug possession
  • Date rape
  • Sexual assault
  • Assault and battery
  • Burglary
  • Vandalism

The Importance of Protecting Your Rights

Police and university security don't always handle evidence properly or secure a crime scene. As a result, the rights of college students and their ability to receive a fair trial are often compromised from the moment they are arrested. This is especially important in cases involving drug possession where police will often arrest everyone in a dorm room or at a party where drugs are out in the open.

In cases involving allegations of rape, how evidence is handled - along with eyewitness testimony - is equally important. Too often, male college students are treated as guilty before their trial even begins. That's why Mr. Weiner consults when necessary forensic experts, lab technicians, DNA specialists, hair and fiber analysts, and others when evaluating the evidence against our clients and the actions of police.

Colleges are not really equipped to ensure college students receive due process when arrested for a crime. They may try to expel you or penalize you before a disciplinary board if the allege crime took place on campus or in a dorm. As your lawyer, Mr. Weiner can represent you if you are allowed to have legal counsel or advise you if you must appear before a board by yourself.
