How can a student defend a violent crimes charge?

 

The best way a college student can defend a violent crimes charge or a violent crimes offense is to take the necessary precautions. Whether the charge is being addressed by your school or outside of the school, local law enforcement that is, do not speak to the school or the campus police or law enforcement without taking the necessary precautions. Too much is at stake. Let your parents know what's going on. Schools and other authorities are often in a rush to judgment and do not have an accused student's rights and interests in mind. And at times, unfortunately, they may not play by their own rules. Evidence that can dispute the allegations would need to be obtained and analyzed and presented prospectively at the given time. It can include text messages, photographic evidence, pictures, videos, social media posts, expert reports potentially to dispute the allegations. Many steps can be taken to defend against a violent crimes offense at college or outside. An experienced attorney advisor can help protect the student's rights and can help navigate the process.
