University of Oregon Misdemeanors

University of Oregon College Campus Lawyer

If you are a University of Oregon student accused of a misdemeanor, you face both criminal charges and administrative proceedings under the University’s student code of conduct that could result in your being evicted from your dorm, suspended, or expelled from school – not to mention legal consequences. At Rosta & Connelly, PC, our college campus lawyers are committed to protecting your rights in criminal court and at the University.

Names and addresses of people who purchase beer kegs are automatically provided to law enforcement agencies. A “party patrol” - Eugene police or University of Oregon public safety personnel - may use this information to look for other problems, such as noise violations, and they may enter a house, search for contraband, and arrest every one present. Misdemeanor charges such as illegal drinking, minor in possession (MIP), under-age drinking, or possession of less then 1 ounce of marijuana, can become much more serious charges if students resist arrest, run away, or become violent.

Simply paying the fine establishes a criminal record, and may affect your status as a student. Our lawyers get the names and phone numbers of everyone present. We interview witnesses, gathering all relevant information. We examine probable cause issues, and determine if the authorities had the right to enter a home and/or conduct a search.  We can defend you in University administrative proceedings involving alleged student conduct code violations, including allegations of date rape.

We thoroughly evaluate your case and advise you as to your legal options. If we see a pattern of legal problems—getting in trouble several times in a short period—we discuss it with you and we offer counsel and advice regarding the underlying causes. We care what happens to you, and we don’t want you to get in legal trouble again.

Throughout our law practice, we offer hands-on, personalized legal counsel, and we have the experience and knowledge needed to provide an effective defense and strong advocacy. If you’ve been accused of a crime, you need to act fast. Contact us today.

Our office is in Eugene, Oregon. We represent clients throughout the state, including the University of Oregon, and the communities of Springfield, Corvallis, Florence, Salem, and Roseburg.
