Common Student Crime Allegations

San Antonio is home to multiple colleges and universities, and each year students from all walks of life are accused of breaking the law. In most cases, students have no intention of harming anyone else, although violent crime incidents do occur.

The types of student cases we see most often in the San Antonio area include:

  • Drug possession
  • MIP (minor in possession)/MIC (minor in consumption)
  • Criminal mischief
  • Disorderly conduct
  • Theft
  • Assault
  • Sexual assault

In any of these matters, the importance of having a dedicated criminal defense attorney on your side cannot be overstated.

Working To Minimize The Negative Consequences

The possible penalties for a student offense will vary, depending on the severity of the charge. In addition to penalties handed down in court, students may face collateral consequences such as suspension or expulsion from school. A conviction could also result in a criminal record and loss of financial aid. Hoelscher Gebbia Cepeda, PLLC, can help with sealing or expunging criminal records after fighting the original case.

Our law firm takes a comprehensive approach to protecting the rights and interests of students. We know the courts, and we know how to seek the best possible outcome for each specific situation. We know our student clients need to graduate on time and be ready to apply for jobs or the next phase of their education.
