Dealing With An Arrest As A South Carolina College Student
Whether you’re attending USC, Clemson, Winthrop or another South Carolina college or university, being arrested and charged with a crime as a college student can have lasting effects on your personal life and professional career. Sometimes college students find themselves on the wrong side of the law; however, making a mistake in college should not detrimentally impact a young person’s future. Having an experienced criminal defense attorney on your case can mean the difference between a clean record and a bright, successful future and spending time behind bars.
In addition to state criminal penalties if convicted, a college student could face additional penalties if convicted including:
- Academic Discipline, including possible expulsion, suspension, or school probation,
- Loss of financial aid or scholarships,
- Forfeiture of assets,
- Inability to obtain a professional license
- Loss of student/on-campus housing privileges.
