Criminal Defense Attorney Serving Miami University Students
College life can be hectic and fast-paced. Matters only get more complicated when a criminal accusation or code violation comes into the mix. Depending on the alleged crime or activity, the consequences can range from high fines to full expulsion from the university.
At Rittgers Rittgers & Nakajima, our Cincinnati criminal defense attorneys are proud to say that we represent and defend Miami University of Ohio students in all manners of criminal defense cases. We know that everyone is capable of making a mistake but that should not unfairly jeopardize your entire education and, consequently, your entire future wellbeing. False accusations or exaggerations of events should absolutely never negatively impact a student’s educational opportunities, so we are always combing through evidence to uncover the truth and discover facts to use to your advantage in court.
Less severe accusations we can handle include:
- Underage students possessing or drinking alcohol
- Fake ID charges
- Noise ordinance violations
- Petty theft
More severe accusations college students might face are:
- Drug possession or distribution
- Assault and battery
- Date rape (sexual assault)
Make no mistake: if you are being charged with any sort of criminal accusation, it can affect your college career. Even if you are arrested for a violation off-campus, it can come to the attention of the Miami University faculty and impact you there. By retaining our criminal defense lawyers, you can prepare to shield yourself from the heavy hand of the law that couldn’t care less if your academic life is going to be hurt by a conviction.
