Sexual Assault / Rape Title IX Violations

Minnesota Title IX Defense Lawyer

Title IX is a federal law that prohibits sexual misconduct, harassment, and other discriminatory or abusive acts in colleges and institutions of higher learning that receive government funding. While the law has been around for years, and requires school officials to immediately and appropriately respond to complaints, a larger focus on sexual misconduct in our social environment have placed greater significance on handling allegations and penalizing offenders – both through administrative means at schools, and criminal law.

If you or your child have been accused of sexual assault or Title IX violations of a sexual nature, you must understand that these are the most serious allegations you can face.

Sexual Assault / Rape & Title IX

As the most serious Title IX violation, sexual assault and rape are life-altering accusations. Even allegations alone, as well as how you respond to allegations, can influence the trajectory of a case and public opinion. That’s because these crimes are classified as violent in nature, and because tremendous outspokenness on sexual misconduct and rape on campus place great strain on administrators and law enforcement to quickly and appropriately handle these claims.

Whether brought by a student against another, a romantic partner, or an instructor or faculty member, sexual assault and rape allegations will always be handled carefully. Under Title IX, school officials will begin investigations after a complaint is made to the school, the Department of Education’s Office of Civil Rights (OCR), or other administrative agencies. To constitute a sexual violence violation, complaints may involve a range of misconduct and sexual contact, such as:

  • 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

Under Title IX, alleged victims who bring complaints to school officials or through other administrative channels has discretion on whether they wish to involve the police. Should a criminal investigation open in connection to sexual assault, legal representation becomes vital. In addition to defending the rights and futures of clients during the Title IX disciplinary process and hearings, our attorneys also have the experience to represent clients facing serious sex crime allegations, which can pose lengthy terms of imprisonment.
