Being accused of a crime is no walk in the park, for anyone. When the accused is a college student, however, the experience can have a more significant impact. College students and minors charged with crimes need to take immediate action, to ensure the futures they are pursuing remain possible. When minors are charged with crimes it is important to set the record straight, so future employment and education opportunities are not missed.

Being arrested for DWI often times includes other charges, such as speeding, running a light or stop sign, reckless driving, failing to devote full time and attention to your driving, possession of controlled substances, or having a fake ID. These charges can result in loss of driving privileges, increased insurance rates, high fines and penalties, and harsh punishments that might include jail time. The circumstances that determine the terms of your punishment depend on whether you are a first time offender, repeat offender, the amount of alcohol in your bloodstream, and a variety of other factors. The consequences vary from case to case, and no one is immune from prosecution.
