REPERCUSSIONS

"Unfortunately, when things get out of hand or the police make mistakes...[students] can end up facing criminal charges in a judicial system that is unfamiliar to both them and their parents....Students who are charged with crimes do not only face criminal punishments.  The universities can and do expel students who are convicted of certain crimes. Source

FOR EXAMPLE

"Imagine that you are in your late 20s and are one of three well-qualified applicants for a job you've always wanted.  You have a minor charge of simple possession of marijuana or underage alcohol possession or use of a fake ID from your college days.  The prosecutor dropped the charges or the Judge...spared you a conviction.  You think you're okay. But the fact that you were charged and went to Court is still in the records.  You will be the first to be dropped from consideration for the job." Source
