College Crimes Homecoming can lead to criminal charges

Although Homecoming offers a fun opportunity for alumni to gather at their former college, homecoming can also lead to criminal charges and college crime charges for unsuspecting students. Date rape charges Typically, local police are on heightened alert during homecoming weekend as a result of the large fraternity and sorority parties that accompany the event. Because of the increase in parties and underage drinking, local police departments are now doing more to stem the tide of partying during Homecoming weekend. For example, many police departments employ additional police officers to work during the weekend. Additionally, some such as West Chester University are even bringing in mounted police in an attempt to stem the tide of illegal drinking and drug use. Make sure to contact the Law Offices of Kelly & Conte if you have been charged with a college crime during homecoming. A conviction for a college crime such as possession of marijuana or underage drinking can lead to a loss of your driver's license and even jail time.

One aspect regarding college crimes and other criminal charges that occur during Homecoming and the trouble they can lead to is the fact that the local police are sometimes less likely to negotiate or drop charges that occur over Homecoming weekend. alcohol related crimes Specifically, the West Chester University Police and the local borough police have recently stated that they will not negotiate any college crimes that occur during the West Chester University homecoming celebration. Accordingly, criminal charges dealing with underage drinking, disorderly conduct, criminal mischief, the possession of drugs or other more serious crimes such as burglary and assault will not be pled down to lesser crimes. A college student charged with a college crime during homecoming at West Chester University should consider hiring the experienced and aggressive trial lawyers at the Law Offices of Kelly & Conte.
