Pre-Gaming is the term used for drinking before the game or before you go out for the night. A term used and recognized by high school and college students nationwide and often the pre-cursor to bad things happening including binge drinking, sexual assaults, and even death from alcohol poisoning or other accidents related to alcohol use.

Finishing high school or starting college is an opportunity for many young people and every year a small percentage get caught breaking the law or even lose their lives when they are drinking. Expert help is only a phone call away when you, a friend, or a family member gets arrested or charged with a crime.

One mistake that results in a criminal conviction can affect the future of even the most promising college student. At Sweeney & Associates, we will find the best resolution for you or your college student charged with a crime. Don’t get a criminal record, don’t lose your driver’s license, don’t get expelled from school!

The Life-Changing Severity of a College Student Crime

Whether you are a college student or the parent of a child attending a Massachusetts college, we can help. We recognize the severity of a drug possession charge or how damaging it is if a student is caught purchasing alcohol for a minor or driving drunk. You can get a criminal record that follows you for life and face suspension of your driver’s license here and at school.

Where the stakes are higher and you find yourself facing a felony, a domestic violence case, a robbery, internet or computer crimes, or drug delivery charges; too much is at stake and you need the level of aggressive representation found at an experienced law firm. BEFORE you talk to the police, call us at (617) 300-0212. Going at it on your own is never a wise option. Accepting a plea bargain from the prosecution without an attorney at your side is unwise. Will the police or district attorneys advise you that a plea will result in a driving license suspension on your record for ninety days or more; or that the conviction of an alcohol offense could remain on your license for life? A criminal record that starts at a young age can come back to haunt the student when they are ready to enter the workforce.

If law enforcement did not take the proper steps in your arrest, we will bring that information to light. Your future is at stake. One mistake does not have to impact you for the rest of your life. Contact us for more information or to schedule an appointment with an experienced lawyer, please contact us at (617) 300-0212. We have attorneys that practice throughout Massachusetts and we are available 24 hours a day.
