When people go to college it is usually the first time when students are living with people other than their own family. Boston is a very expensive town to live in. As a result of the cost of living being so high, it is very common that students will share costs by living together. These types of living arrangements may seem to be a goo idea, but sometimes they lead to criminal charges being issued.
With roommates, a bad situation can turn criminal if things get out of control. Arguments can turn into allegations of assault and battery and malicious destruction. These situations are often “he said, she said” and is usually difficult for all parties to prove.
Even though the situations may seem minor, the criminal charges can have devastating effects. It is important that you have an experienced defense attorney as soon as you can. Attorney Jason Chan has represented many students in criminal cases that were the results of roommate disputes.
