College And High School Crimes
Everyone makes mistakes — especially teens and young adults. At J. W. Carney, Jr. and Associates, our job is to help prosecutors, judges and juries look beyond the mistake and see the person.
We take the time to get to know your child — his or her strengths, weaknesses and struggles — and build his or her story into our defense. We find that when the prosecution feels like they know your child, they are more willing to grant him or her a second chance.
Located in Boston, we defend teenagers and young adults throughout Massachusetts against a wide variety of crimes, including:
- Drunk driving
- Drug offenses
- Underage drinking
- Sex offenses
- Theft crimes
- Violent crimes
A Criminal Conviction Will Greatly Limit Your Child’s Future
For a young person, a criminal conviction can be especially limiting. Getting into college or graduate school with a criminal record can be challenging. If the crime was drug-related, your child will lose his or her eligibility for federal financial aid. These consequences are in addition to the prison time and fines he or she may be sentenced to.
Our lawyers understand that this may be the biggest legal issue your family has ever faced. We want you to know that we take your child’s criminal charges as seriously as you do. We will do everything in our power to make sure this charge does not damage your child’s future. We not only represent clients in court, but also in college campus disciplinary hearings.
