The criminal defense attorneys at Raipher, P.C. provide aggressive defense of college students who have been accused of crimes in Massachusetts. The firm is prepared to help college students fight criminal charges and major campus disciplinary actions, while working to minimize the long-term consequences of the charge.
Examples of College Crimes
Our lawyers defend students against any type of criminal charge, including:

  • Underage drinking (minor in possession)
  • Supplying alcohol to a minor
  • Theft, robbery and burglary
  • Sex crimes, including date rape
  • Internet crimes
  • Assault and battery
  • Weapons charges
  • Arson
  • Drug crimes

When a conviction for even a minor in possession can mean loss of scholarships, refused admittance into a higher education program, and possible effects on a career, skilled and experienced defense is important.

Our team of criminal defense attorneys, led by Attorney Raipher D. Pellegrino, explores every option to help obtain the best possible outcome for its clients. Does our client have a solid alibi? Is there solid proof that the drugs belonged to our client, or could they belong to a roommate? Did the police violate any constitutional rights to obtain evidence? What are the alleged victim’s motives for filing a complaint? Our criminal defense attorneys investigate the charge and look for opportunities to challenge weaknesses in the prosecution’s case.
