If a college student is accused of sexual misconduct, then they will most likely have to attend a Title IX hearing. While these hearings are ostensibly non-biased affairs, the members of the hearing panel may not treat the person accused of misconduct fairly. This bias can be challenging because the outcome of a Title IX hearing can result in expulsion or suspension from the college.
While Title IX cases are not criminal matters, a trusted defense attorney can protect the rights of a student. If the allegations do lead to criminal charges, then a knowledgeable lawyer can defend the rights of the accused.

College is often a time for experimentation, and students may have their first sexual experiences. Because of their inexperience, simple mistakes can be misconstrued as sexual assault, harassment and even more serious allegations. There is also the issue of students of varying ages attending college, which can lead to misunderstandings about the age of consent and statutory rape charges. Any of these issues can be the cause of a Title IX hearing, which can cause significant problems for a student’s future.
Title IX hearings are impartial reviews of evidence related to alleged sexual misconduct to find a fair response to this alleged misconduct. Unfortunately, the current climate around sex crimes makes it difficult for Title IX investigators and the staff of colleges to maintain this equal treatment. Because of this problem with fairness, it is important that you hire a lawyer who can present your defense and ensure that the hearing follows the rules.
Our lawyers believe that, in cases involving misconduct and potential criminal matters, a person is innocent unless proven guilty.
