Facing criminal charges is stressful and potentially damaging to your future. Just like anyone else, you can be charged with any type of offense, from a low-level misdemeanor to a first-degree felony, which will be prosecuted in the local criminal courts.
Common campus crimes can include:

- Selling or distributing illegal drugs
- Criminal trespass
- Criminal mischief
- Underage drinking offenses, including buying alcohol with a fake ID
- Driving while under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs
- Shoplifting and other theft crimes

As a college student, your life has just begun and your future can be as productive and fulfilling as you choose to make it. While at school, however, if you are charged with any type of criminal offense, that future can be seriously impacted. Being convicted of a crime can put you at risk for jail or prison time, heavy fines, community service, probation, and other court-ordered sanctions or programs.
In the State of Texas any tampering, alteration, or presenting of a license issued to another individual is a criminal offense according to Texas Penal Code §521.451. This typically can be charged as a Class B Misdemeanor which may come with up to 180 days in jail and/or up to $2k in fines.
