Allegations of criminal conduct, let alone actual criminal charges, can have a big impact on young people still finding their way in the world. Our readers in George may have seen news reports about a recent incident at Roswell High School that has led to a police investigation.
On a recent weekend, vandalism occurred at Roswell High School. Two West Forsyth High School students are under investigation for allegedly vandalizing the marching band practice field at Roswell High School. According to reports, the two students were in a pick-up truck that drove wildly across the field that was saturated. A video showed up on social media that showed a dark colored pick-up truck driving erratically across the field with mud flying high in the air. The Fulton Schools Police Department is conducting a criminal investigation into the matter.
Facing police investigation and criminal charges can be a difficult event for teenagers and their families. In certain cases that make the news such as the alleged events above, investigators will likely be aggressive in pushing for charges. On the other side of a legal case, a teen who is convicted of a misdemeanor felony can face jail time and a record that can follow them for many years. A college application can suffer, along with scholarships and future job opportunities.
Thankfully, those facing charges do not have to go through the process alone. An experienced attorney can help teens and their families navigate an investigation and any criminal charges, working to limit the impact as much as possible while ensuring a stout defense.
