School Crimes Attorney Serving The State Of Delaware

Crimes committed on Delaware school property are prosecuted the same as crimes not committed on school grounds from a legal standpoint. However, Delaware school crimes carry with them the possibility of additional penalties such as suspension or expulsion.

Frequently with school crimes, the prosecution may be more aggressive and seek harsher penalties for crimes involving physical injuries to either a teacher or fellow student.

Being accused of a school crime should be taken very seriously. You should consult with and retain a skilled and experienced Delaware Crime Defense Attorney.

How A Delaware Lawyer Can Help

As a minor, even a Family Court adjudication of delinquency can have an impact on their entire life. A school crime conviction will alter the course of their future and their lives can be jeopardized on many levels. With a school crime conviction, there is much more at stake than just an administrative punishment such as being suspended or expelled.

A Delaware school crime can impact other numerous aspects of your child’s life. A criminal record can prevent your child from getting into college, getting into the military and perhaps becoming employed following high school graduation. Also, with crimes committed on school grounds, there is the risk of expulsion which will further impact your child’s future.

Retaining a Kent County Delaware School Crime Attorney will ensure that your child’s rights and reputation are protected. They will also determine whether or not the school officials, the school board, and police followed proper procedure and that any searches of lockers, backpacks, purses, etc were justified.

A qualified Sussex County Delaware School Crime Lawyer will make sure that your child’s rights and reputation are fully protected.
