Criminal Defense Attorneys in Bloomington
Our criminal defense attorneys have years of experience representing ISU students who have been charged with criminal offenses, including but not limited to:
- Underage DUI or repeat DUI / felony DUI
- Underage drinking and minor in possession (MIP)
- Drug offenses, including possession of controlled substances such as marijuana
- Theft offenses
- Sex offenses, including accusations of date rape
The penalties for conviction of these crimes can be severe and last long into the future. For example, a felony drug conviction can cause a student to lose federal financial aid eligibility, which could prevent him or her from finishing college. Moreover, some universities have ethics committees on campus, which may consider suspension from school in the face of certain criminal convictions. Even if the student is able to finish his or her education, the resulting criminal record may prevent him or her from obtaining gainful employment.
We can aggressively build a defense on your behalf to help avoid conviction, or to minimize the charges against you through a plea to a lesser charge that does not carry severe penalties. In some cases, if conviction is unavoidable, our Illinois State University criminal defense lawyers may be able to secure alternative sentencing options to avoid jail time and other consequences, and seek options to minimize the effects of the conviction on your future.
