or High School
Barton Hagee Law Firm, PLLC | San Antonio | South Texas
Being arrested while in High School or College can feel like a death sentence to the student and to the parents. A conviction or arrest on your record could permanently stifle your child’s future both academically and economically. The last thing your son or daughter can afford is to have their record permanently stained with a conviction. Because the potential consequences are so dire following an arrest, it is imperative you fight the accusation with a premier defense firm. An arrest DOES NOT have to end up on your record as a conviction. We can help you move past this with minimal consequences.
If your son or daughter is arrested while attending school, potential consequences are not limited to just their criminal case, we will also have to deal with an internal School Decision. Typically, a hearing must be conducted within 30 days of the arrest once the School has been notified. This hearing is often a one-sided attempt to get your son or daughter to confess to the accusation so they may expel, suspend, or take other disciplinary action against the student. You CANNOT defend yourself in these hearings, as they are designed to intimidate and threaten the student into doing what the School desires. Having the right legal representation can mean the difference between obtaining a degree or getting kicked out of school.
