Numerous colleges and schools require the student body to sign a code of conduct. This code explicitly forbids unethical and criminal behavior. Even if a student’s criminal charges are dismissed, they can often find themselves in front of a school’s review board. Timian & Fawcett, LLC recognizes how important these matters can be. For many, getting a college education is the path to a successful future. Being kicked out of school or charged with a crime on school grounds can be devastating. Our firm has significant experience helping students from schools in College Park, Baltimore, Annapolis, and across the state fight against expulsion, the loss of housing privileges, marks on their academic records and criminal charges. We are regularly called upon by students at the University of Maryland, Townson University and numerous other colleges in the area. For an experienced student misconduct attorney in Maryland or Washington D.C., contact Timian & Fawcett, LLC.
Our Legal Services
Students are forbidden from engaging in a range of activities. When a college student is accused of misconduct, even if it is not a criminal matter, the consequences can be shocking. Some of the student misconduct cases we regularly handle include:
- Underage drinking
- Drug possession
- Sexual misconduct
Although some of these acts are not criminal in nature, they can still carry serious costs. If you are facing criminal charges, you will need to fight in both criminal court and possibly in front of a review board focused on revoking your housing privileges, expelling you from school, and leaving you with a permanent mark on your academic record. Though the matter seems minor, it usually isn’t.
