Frequently Asked Questions about College Crime in New Jersey 

What is the impact of an arrest on a student’s education?

New Jersey’s colleges and universities including Rowan, Rutgers, College of NJ, Stockton, and Rider implement a code of conduct that all students and other members of their community must adhere to. Different schools also have policies and procedures that are unique to the school. How an educational institution handles an arrest will therefore vary. However, in general, many schools will investigate allegations of violating their code. Schools do this independently of the police. They may also hold a hearing to discuss the matter. A ruling will be given during this hearing that will have an impact on the student’s education. If you are found to have violated school policies, your punishment may be harsh. Punishments often range from receiving a reprimand for your behavior to suspension or expulsion.

If you have been accused of violating school policy or committing a crime on campus, you should contact the Law Office of John B Brennan for representation by an experienced NJ college student defense attorney. Our team will fight to protect your rights and minimize the impact of the arrest on your education.

Can I be arrested for drinking on campus in a New Jersey college?

Yes. Universities and colleges may seem to turn a blind eye to the consumption of alcohol on their campuses. However, they in fact adhere to state laws about alcohol consumption. This means that if you are found violating the law even on campus, you will be subject to arrest. Most students are under the age of 21, which is the legal age for consuming alcohol in New Jersey. You could be arrested for underage drinking. Other common violations students are arrested for include drinking in public, driving under the influence of alcohol, and other alcohol-related offenses.

If you have been arrested on campus for an alcohol-related offense, you should contact the Law Office of John B. Brennan. We are experienced in representing students in a variety of alcohol-related violations. We will work to pursue a positive outcome on your behalf.
