Help for Students Facing Charges of Crime on Campus
More than thirty years of experience on your side
The college years are an exciting time: you’ll have new experiences, make new friends and gain a new outlook on your future. The frivolity of youth, however, can sometimes lead to unintended consequences – consequences that could have a lasting effect on your future. At the Law Office of Perry A. Craft, PLLC, in Nashville, we understand how circumstances can sometimes get “out of control,” and we believe that one mistake should not affect your entire life. If you have been charged with a college campus crime, we can zealously defend your rights.
Common campus crimes
It can be easy to get carried away during a party, or if you are in a high-stress situation. At the Law Office of Perry A. Craft, we have successfully defended clients accused of:
- Underage drinking
- Driving under the influence
- Possession illegal drugs
- Selling illegal or prescription drugs
- Theft, including shoplifting and burglary charges
- Assault charges
- Fraud/ identity theft charges
- Sexual misconduct, including charges of stalking
A crime is a crime regardless of where it is committed. Campus crimes, however, can carry additional penalties. Furthermore, there has been a disturbing trend in the media for highlighting campus crimes, making it more likely that, if you are involved in any way, your name and personal information could be spread far and wide – not just in Tennessee, but across the country.
As a criminal defense lawyer in Nashville, Attorney Craft has helped college-age men and women facing penalties that extend far beyond fines. Our firm helps local and out-of-state students, working with you and your parents to get you the help you need. We answer our phones during the day and the night, and have met with clients being held in county jails or state prisons. We are widely acknowledged for our aggressive courtroom strategies, but will attempt to please down your charges first if an outright dismissal is not possible; this saves you time and cuts down on the expenses associated with going to criminal trial in Tennessee. It is our job to protect you, your rights and your future.
