‘Kids Being Kids’ Now Comes With Severe Penalties
The vast majority of assault cases are simple matters of kids being kids. College students have too much to drink, get into relatively minor altercations, and end up arrested and accused of assault or disorderly conduct.
Unfortunately, law enforcement and prosecutors don’t let kids off the hook just for being kids. Going to jail and paying a high fine are possibilities. In Pennsylvania, these charges could also lead to lost scholarships. These are penalties that attorney Roy K. Lisko strives to prevent.
