Rider University Criminal Offenses & Traffic Violations

Virtually any criminal or traffic offense can arise at Rider University. The Public Safety Department publishes an Annual Security and Fire Safety Report that details charges arising on campus annually. The most common violations outlined in the report include:

Marijuana Possession Domestic ViolenceDisorderly Conduct
Simple AssaultAggravated AssaultDistribution of CDS
Underage DrinkingBurglaryTheft
StalkingUnderage Alcohol PossessionCredit Card Fraud
Sex OffensesCocaine Charges Drug Paraphernalia

Do not make the mistake of underestimating the severity of a criminal offense or serious motor vehicle ticket. A conviction can certainly have a long term impact on your life so attempting to deal with a charge without representation by a skilled attorney is strongly discouraged. Way too often we receive telephone inquiries from students who have the idea of handling a violation on their own rather than obtaining help from their parent(s). This can turn out to be a grave error since a finding of guilt for even a disorderly persons offense results in a criminal record that can affect your ability to obtain employment, gain admission into graduate school and secure a professional license.

Lawrenceville NJ Criminal Lawyers

Lawrenceville has been the home of Rider University since 1959 and the school has grown to the point that it now employs approximately thirty (30) full-time security officers. These individuals function as the police on campus and do not hesitate to enforce the law when someone violates a criminal or traffic statute. They are similarly aggressive when it comes time for prosecution of a charge in the municipal court of Lawrence or, worse yet, at the Superior Court. Do not be fooled into thinking that you do not need an attorney to equal the playing field and protect your rights. A lawyer who is skilled in criminal defense and is highly familiar with the court system like those at The Law Offices of Jonathan F. Marshall will insure that you reach the best result possible. The attorneys at our firm are ready to get to work on your case. Call us at 609–683–8102 for an immediate consultation.
