College Student Defense

Colleges and Universities have their own codes of conduct. Alleged violations of these codes can subject students to complicated, and sometimes grossly unfair conduct hearings. Unfortunately for accused students, these conduct adjudication processes are not governed by the same rules as criminal trials. Students have only such "rights" as the college or university decides to allow. Depending on the alleged violations, findings of guilt can result in suspension or expulsion, and can have a serious negative impact on your future.

Sexual Misconduct Allegations

The federal government imposes strict requirements on colleges and universities when it comes to dealing with sexual assault, sexual misconduct, and sexual harassment cases. These requirements have created a culture in which accused students are treated as guilty from the start. Alleged victims are believed 100%, and it is up to the accused to prove his innocence. Complicating matters further is the fact that sexual assault is a crime. Therefore, anything an accused student says in connection with a conduct violation investigation or hearing can be used against him/her in a potential criminal prosecution. For these reasons, it is important that you be represented by an attorney if you have been accused of sexual misconduct by a college or university.
