A Strong Defense For Students Accused Of School-Related Criminal Threats
“Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words can never hurt me.” For many generations, children have been taught similar forms of psychological defense against harmful words. In the not-too-distant past, threatening words against a student, a faculty member or a school might result in disciplinary action from the principal’s office. It was commonly understood that young people make mistakes and may need to be corrected – but not ruined for life over idle threats.
Today’s world is very different. Schools take threats seriously – including threats made outside of school in social media forums. Even if you or your child is simply rumored to have made threats against a school or a student at school, the accused needs an attorney with experience. Look for a lawyer who knows how to work with the school and government agencies to make sure that a youthful indiscretion doesn’t have lifelong implications.
