Salt Lake City Criminal Defense Attorney
College Students Crimes Experience You Can Count On

Experienced Salt Lake City College Student Crimes Lawyer

Students from the University of Utah, Utah State University, Weber State University, Salt Lake Community College and other public and private colleges and universities may be charged with a variety of crimes, including:

  • Drug possession
  • Underage drinking
  • DUI
  • Disorderly conduct
  • Assault for fighting
  • Sex crimes
  • Other serious offenses

Police, including campus police, resident assistants and other authority figures may also conduct dorm room searches that result in criminal charges. As a Salt Lake City criminal defense lawyer, I will use my experience to advise you on what you are facing, whether there may be any type of diversion program available and whether the charges can be expunged from the criminal record.

A criminal charge is a serious matter for any person. But for a college student, a criminal conviction can significantly damage his or her education, career and future. A criminal record may limit or prevent access to financial aid and make it more difficult to get a job in the future. It is important that you protect your rights, or the rights of your child, after an arrest for a crime in Utah.

I am Salt Lake City criminal law defense attorney Catherine Cleveland. At the Cleveland Law Firm, I provide an experienced defense to college students facing criminal or juvenile charges throughout Salt Lake City. For many young adults who are of college age, this may be the first involvement with the criminal justice system. The fear of an arrest forever limiting their opportunities is tremendous. While providing criminal defense for the criminal charges, I will provide effective options to limit any future harm.
