Movies have often made a college education and disorderly conduct look like two names for the same thing. Fictional college students usually somehow come out on top, but criminal convictions for disorderly conduct can have serious consequences for a real college student’s future job and education prospects.
Illicit drugs have long been alluring to college students, who are in a stage of life where they are finding their path and pushing the boundaries of their independence for the first time. However, today's drugs are becoming more available and perhaps more dangerous than ever before.
The issue surrounding college students and recreational drug use was highlighted last fall, when two college students died at the Lost Lands Music Festival in Licking County. According to WHIZ News, two concert goers were found unresponsive at the festival, which had about 40,000 attendees. The two unresponsive individuals received medical care and were taken to a hospital, only to be pronounced dead a few hours later.
Living with a criminal record can create a number of different obstacles. Making a mistake when you were young could cost you the chance to follow your dreams and live the life you want. Fortunately, there may be a way for you to fix this.
Expungement is the court-ordered process of having an arrest or criminal conviction sealed. This means that in the eyes of the law, your criminal record no longer exists. Naturally, the process of having your mistake sealed may open new opportunities for you and benefit you in ways that you were previously unaware.
