Protecting Your Future

Students often experiment with drugs. Unfortunately, when they are caught, they must face the serious consequences of drug charges. If you are a student charged with drug possession — or a parent of a student facing drug charges — you should not place your charges in the hands of an inexperienced attorney.

The DuPage County college student drug crimes attorney at the Law Office of Philip R. Nathe has more than 28 years of experience in the criminal justice system and has practiced criminal defense since 1990. Our team understands how to provide a strong defense against drug charges as well as the specific issues that students face when they are charged with drug possession.

Harsh Consequences For A Drug Conviction

The consequences of a conviction for marijuana, opiates, or other illegal drugs such as cocaine or methamphetamine can affect you now and in the future. Like others charged with drug crimes, students face the possibility of fines, probation, and jail or prison time. But as a student, you may also face particular potential consequences that make it difficult to complete your education.

  • You may be unable to obtain federal grants, student loans and other federal funding to pay for your education.
  • In addition to your criminal charges, your college or university may impose additional sanctions on you.

If you are convicted, you may have a permanent criminal record that can create difficulties finding employment and housing. In short, a drug conviction can have a serious impact on your future.
