Protecting Students’ Rights During Title IX Proceedings

Under Title IX, no person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any educational program or activity receiving federal financial assistance. This federal law also prohibits sexual misconduct, harassment, or other abusive acts in colleges that receive government funding. If you’re facing a Title IX violation charge, learn how to protect your rights.

Fighting a Title IX Violation Charge

If you or your child has been accused of sexual assault under Title IX, we suggest you take the allegations seriously. Due to government pressure and public opinion, colleges and universities often immediately launch an investigation into the matter and the process moves quickly. It’s important to have someone on your side who understands the process and can advocate on your behalf.

Sexual assault laws are complex and vary from state to state. To constitute a sexual violence violation, complaints may involve a wide range of misconduct, including:

  • Physical sexual acts perpetrated against a person’s will
  • Violations of lack of consent policies
  • Date rape
  • Sexual acts committed against an individual who was too intoxicated or impaired to give their consent
  • Stalking

It’s important to understand that the burden on the University to prove these allegations is much lower than a criminal court. So, even if the conduct doesn’t amount to criminal charges, you could still face serious consequences through the university. With stakes as high as these, we suggest contacting a qualified criminal defense attorney to protect your rights. At Caplan & Tamburino, we have the experience and resources to safeguard your future. We have defended the rights of dozens of clients from universities across the state.
