College provides most young adults with their first taste of independence from adult supervision. Unfortunately, some students may not be able to handle that freedom, and their actions may lead to criminal charges. If your son or daughter finds themselves in this situation, trust Kevin L. Collins, P.C., in San Antonio, to provide skilled representation. As a board-certified specialist in both criminal law and juvenile law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization, I am able to protect your child’s rights so that youthful indiscretions don’t negatively affect their future.
Even kids who have never before been in trouble can find themselves on the wrong end of the law on campus. There are many ways in which college students can get themselves into trouble:
If your son or daughter faces any of these allegations, it’s essential to seek legal help immediately. When charges are filed, college students may expect to be prosecuted as adults, not juveniles, even for minor infractions. When that happens, I will ensure they receive a vigorous defense and work to alleviate or minimize the consequences.
Title IX is the common name for a federal civil rights statute that outlaws sex discrimination, including sexual harassment and sexual violence, in all colleges, universities and schools receiving federal funding. It provides victims of sexual crimes an alternative avenue of redress. If the school is aware of possible sexual misconduct, even if the alleged victim does not file a complaint, it is required to investigate the allegations and take effective steps to stop or resolve the problem. Title IX also requires schools to establish prompt and fair grievance procedures for handling complaints of sexual misconduct. These procedures must give both the alleged victim or complainant and the alleged perpetrator or respondent the opportunity to present evidence and the same rights to appeal. If your son or daughter is a respondent in a Title IX grievance procedure, or the subject of a Title IX investigation, I will fight for their rights as zealously as if they were facing criminal charges.
If your son or daughter in college is accused of a crime or faces a Title IX investigation or grievance proceeding, reach out to Kevin L. Collins, P.C. in San Antonio. I represent students across Texas facing a wide range of allegations. Call 210-598-8629 or contact me online.
