THE IMPACT OF PLEADING GUILTY TO A CRIME AND YOUR STUDENT LOANS
Many college students in New Jersey and across the country finance their education through federal student loans. Because so many students are dependent on these student loans, it is important to understand that a student's actions can affect their eligibility to receive these loans. What most students take for granted is that a conviction for minor criminal offenses can result in suspension of student loans.
HAZING IS NO BIG DEAL! OR IS IT?
Hazing in New Jersey is an offense that can be punished more severely than one would probably imagine. Many sororities, fraternities, sports teams, military units and gangs use hazing as a ritual in order to initiate members into the group. Rituals could include physical and mental punishment, sexual misconduct, nudity, pranks and criminal misconduct just to mention a few methods. Many people see hazing as a joke or fun and don't take into account the fact they can be charged criminally for it.
