  • Penn State is consistently ranked as a top party school by numerous popular magazines. With roughly 40,000 college students, some of whom are away from home for the first time, mistakes are common. Don’t let a seemingly small mishap taint your future.

  • With legal counsel the consequences of an underage offense can be mitigated, and allow you to move on with your life without having to relive the mistake at every job interview.
  • The primary laws involved when charged with a minor offense are located in Title 18 of the Pennsylvania Consolidated Statutes, Chapter 63. These statutes are complex, and contain numerous cross-references. Therefore, it is imperative that you seek competent legal counsel when charged. These links are provided for your convenience only.
