Protecting The Futures Of Young Adults

Whether you or your child was arrested or charged with a crime, the path forward can seem frightening and uncertain. A conviction for a college student can put their education, reputation and future employment prospects in question.

Attorney Michael A. Newland has assisted individuals across Butler County facing criminal charges since 1989. He understands the stakes involved when college students face any sort of criminal charge. Working with many Miami University students, Mr. Newland takes a practical approach to forming a strong strategy throughout both school administrative and criminal proceedings.

Guarding Against The Consequences Of A Criminal Record

A criminal record can have significant consequences on your future. It can be challenging, if not impossible, to eventually seal a conviction from your record. As a college student, you have your entire life ahead of you. Mr. Newland will fight to ensure that this does not define your future opportunities.

Assisting With A Wide Array Of Criminal Charges

Mr. Newland defends both adults and minors against a wide array of charges, including:

  • Driving under the influence
  • Possession of a fake ID
  • Underage alcohol consumption
  • Theft, robbery and shoplifting
  • Possession of drugs and other related charges

When college students face charges, they typically face action from both their school and the state of Ohio. Mr. Newland is knowledgeable in the school administrative proceedings that can run parallel with criminal proceedings. He can represent you in both hearings — guarding against punitive measures from your school and harsh consequences from the state.

When possible, Mr. Newland fights for reduced or dismissed charges. He is familiar with the courts and judges across Butler County, and he can anticipate how they may rule. When a diversion program or rehabilitation is a plausible alternative to a conviction, he will aggressively pursue this option to keep you out of jail.
