Waco College Student Criminal Charges: We Can Safeguard Your Future

Attending college is a time to explore, learn and grow – but mistakes can lead to criminal charges. Whether you are facing accusations yourself or worried about your child, the stakes are high and conviction could mean severe and long-lasting consequences.

At Callahan & King, PLLC, in Waco, Texas, we understand the challenges college students face in the legal system. Our dedicated defense attorneys can protect students’ rights and fight for the most favorable outcome in each case.

Common Charges Texas College Students Face

Our understanding of Texas’ complex criminal justice system ensures young defendants have an opportunity to mount a strong defense. We handle cases involving:

  • DUI (driving under the influence)
  • Disorderly conduct
  • Drug offenses
  • Theft and shoplifting
  • Vandalism
  • Trespassing
  • Assault and battery
  • Fake IDs and alcohol violations

Whatever the charge, we can help students address their situation in a prudent and effective manner.

Navigating Title IX And Disciplinary Hearings In Texas

College campuses are governed by Title IX, a federal law that prohibits discrimination based on sex. It encompasses allegations related to sexual assault, harassment or relationship violence.

If you are facing Title IX accusations, rest assured that you have the right to a fair hearing and legal representation. We can guide you through the intricate Title IX process and safeguard your rights during disciplinary hearings.

Defending Yourself Alone Is Risky For Texas University Students

The criminal justice system can be overwhelming, especially for the inexperienced. We can:

  • Create an effective defense tailored to the specific situation
  • Negotiate with prosecutors to reduce charges or offer alternative sentencing
  • Provide legal and emotional support and represent the student in court proceedings
  • Assist and protect in Title IX actions and university disciplinary hearings

Our lawyers will guide you through every stage, helping reduce the risk of harsh consequences.
