Defending Students Against Criminal Charges
At Townsend & Thompson, LLP, we provide representation for South Carolina families with college students who have been accused of crimes. In many ways, criminal charges have a greater impact on college students than others. Not only will college students face consequences from both the criminal justice system and school disciplinary boards, they also face long-term damage to their reputations that could cut down their careers in their prime.
The attorneys of Townsend & Thompson, LLP, have been defending clients against criminal charges for more than 40 years. Our Laurens County college student criminal defense lawyers understand the importance of defending against these charges. We represent college students in both the criminal justice system and the school disciplinary proceedings.
We have a track record of successfully defending our college student clients against criminal charges. Do not let the mistakes made in youth destroy a bright future. To protect your future or your child's future, call us to talk with an attorney from our firm at 864-984-6554.
There are two aspects to defending college students against criminal charges. The first is in the criminal justice system. We have experienced criminal defense lawyers who have worked as public defenders and as special prosecutors in the Eighth Judicial Circuit. With more than 40 years of experience working both sides of the criminal justice system, we provide aggressive, strategic criminal defense against criminal charges that include:
- Drug possession and distribution
- Sex crimes
- Underage drinking
- Disorderly conduct
University Disciplinary Action
The other aspect of defending a university student against charges involves the school's disciplinary committee. We represent clients and their families in their negotiations with the school board. In many cases, we have been able to get students reinstated on a probationary basis to resume their academic careers. We represent college students in many local school systems, including:
- Presbyterian College
- Furman University
- Clemson University
- The University of South Carolina
