If you are a student at Georgia Southern, any type of criminal charge could jeopardize both your education and future. If you have been accused of a crime, it is important to have an aggressive attorney on your side who knows how Georgia Southern works.
Georgia Southern is known for suspending students as soon as they are charged with a crime, whether they are guilty or not. Often, this can happen before the first court date even occurs. It is therefore important to have an attorney who will make contact with the school’s administration immediately to fight for your right to stay in school while your case unfolds.
Georgia Southern has an additional separate student disciplinary procedure. Georgia Southern will give you a hearing; however, you will likely only get one. You may be required to present reasons why you should be allowed to remain in school while you are facing criminal charges. It is extremely important to discuss your strategy with an attorney who knows what the administrators want and need to hear.
