Aggressive, Skillful and Experienced Defense

Students facing criminal charges have additional concerns

Eastern Iowa is the home of several of the finest universities in the nation, as well as tens of thousands of students who attend these prestigious institutions. When the young men and women who attend these universities get into trouble with the law, they may not realize that their criminal matters may also affect their standing at school, and can lead to sanctions, suspension or even outright expulsion. A criminal conviction can also jeopardize a student's ability to obtain or maintain scholarships or financial aid. For this reason, college students facing criminal charges have the option of calling the Law Offices of J. Dean Keegan and Thomas D.S. Farnsworth.

Most universities have a code of conduct and ethics that enrolled students must adhere to. A defendant's alleged actions could also violate the university's own policies in addition to state or local law, so a student may find themselves having to defend themselves in two entirely separate proceedings simultaneously. To make matters worse, allegations against a student may not need to be proven beyond a reasonable doubt, so even if a student is cleared of criminal charges, they may still be found culpable under university standards.

The Law Firm of Keegan and Farnsworth is dedicated to helping clients who are facing allegations of criminal conduct. They understand that everyone makes mistakes, but they also believe that these mistakes shouldn't necessarily have to follow a person for the rest of their lives.

Among the college population, the most common criminal allegations involve drinking, OUI, drugs and other minor personal altercations. Keegan and Farnsworth have the knowledge and experience to help people facing these kinds of charges, as well as more serious charges, navigate the legal system as well as their university's administrative proceedings.
