Welcome to McGuckin Law. Are you a Rutgers student facing marijuana charges, simple assault, disorderly conduct, resisting arrest or DUI charges? Has your college age student been arrested for possession of heroin, aggravated assault, theft, distribution of marijuana or prescription drug offenses? If so, take some time to understand the charges, weigh your options, and face the charges calmly and efficiently. College students can act irresponsibly, immaturely, and even crazy. 40,000 young adults packed into a vibrant town can lead to momentary lapses of judgment. You are not alone.
New Jersey State Troopers, New Brunswick and Piscataway Police, and Rutgers University Campus Safety patrol the campuses and effectuate arrests for criminal, drug, disorderly conduct, and drinking crimes. Unfortunately, students often commit acts that are uncharacteristic of their own personalities and status as respectable and educated young men and women. This is almost always due to the presence of alcohol and drugs in college towns and on college campuses. Students who are partying while under the influence of drugs or alcohol make decisions that they normally wouldn’t. In addition to potentially losing out on scholastic opportunities, students who have committed a crime may also face criminal charges that can result in jail time, community service, steep monetary penalties, and a criminal record. The immediate and lasting effects of a criminal charge are severe.
