Oregon Criminal Defense Lawyer Representing Defendants in Beaverton
Beaverton is set in Oregon’s Washington County and is 7 miles west of the heart of Portland. This city was home to nearly 90,000 residents as of the 2010 US census, making it the second-largest city in the county.
In that same year Beaverton was noted as being one of the best 100 places to live in the United States by Money Magazine. Today it is known for its diverse economy and low crime rate, making it an ideal place for families to raise their children.
Protecting Our Children’s Careers and Futures
Beaverton is home to a variety of public and private institutions. Portland Community College (PCC) also has some facilities which operate within the city’s borders.
The life of a high school or college student is one which is complicated and often involves complex relationships and unfamiliar interactions as these inexperienced young adults try to navigate all of life’s nuances. This also, unfortunately, increases the vulnerability of these individuals.
If a high school or college student has been charged with a crime, early and immediate intervention is critical to his or her case. A skilled attorney will be able to defend the rights of a young adult early on and may be able to dismiss any claims before they go to court. This not only helps protect the young adult’s reputation, but it also protects their ability to get into the right college or university and to enter into the career of their dreams.
Most Common College Student Crimes
Some crimes are more common amongst high school and college students than others. Some of the leading crimes include:
- Drunk driving (DUI)
- Underage drinking
- Drug crimes
- Assault and battery
- Sex crimes (including Internet sex crimes)
- Statutory rape
