Pittsburgh Attorney Frank Walker, who handles underage cases from students at Pitt, Duquesne, Robert Morris and Carlow, said that a citation can have a detrimental effect on students’ financial futures, as well.
“Students don’t realize the effects it has on their search for job,” he said.
In the law field, Walker said summary offenses such as underage citations could pose a problem when taking the bar exam, which asks test-takers if they’ve been convicted of any crimes.
“You may think in your mind you don’t have to report it — I was a minor,” Walker said. “It will appear to them if you answer ‘no’ that you were somewhat evasive.” - Pitt News
