Attending college or university is often one of the best times of an individual’s life. You
are finally free from your parent’s home and usually living on your own or with close
friends on campus. For many, this is a time to experiment both with your future life and
unfortunately alcohol or even drugs. Though this can lead to a lot of fun, it can also lead
to many mistakes that can change your life forever.
Many campuses today are affected vastly by inappropriate sexual conduct between
students. Though this is mostly caused by male students towards female students, this
is not always the case. No matter which genders are being affected, ending this
problem has become a major goal of most schools. Due to this, the crackdown on those
who face these types of charges has become even harsher than it was in the past.
If you find yourself facing any type of sex crime charges from an incident that happened
at your university, it is important that you equip yourself with the best law team possible.
Every college in the United States, including Rhode Island, has a duty to investigate any
allegations of wrongdoing related to their students. You will find that this is laid out in
Title IX or the Federal Code, which holds each school responsible for this. Since this is
simply stated and little guidance is actually given to the schools, each university will
handle these accusations differently.
Though many universities offer their students more protection and due process, others
fall extremely short from offering any. This means that the results of this cases can vary
greatly and the consequences of these actions also vary. For many, if they are found at
fault for any campus misconduct, it will lead to their expulsion from the campus.
Depending on the severity, this can cause you to lose any chance of attending a
different university or even lead to jail time.
On most college campus rule books, there are specific actions laid out that are
considered misconducts and will lead to expulsion or punishment. On these lists, almost
every university will include sexual assault or misconduct and date rape. Unfortunately,
even if you are under the influence of a drug or alcohol, you will still be held accountable
fully for your actions. If you do these actions knowingly and willingly, you will obviously
face even harsher consequences.
If you feel that you have done one of these actions, whether you are certain or not, you
may want to look for a law firm sooner rather than later. If you are unaware of your
actions and you are given an allegation of wrongdoing, you should find an experienced
lawyer immediately. Some may be contacted directly, for others it may your parent that
is conducted, regardless, quick action is crucial to secure the safety of your future.
Handling a sex crime case on campus is different than doing one in a traditional legal
way, which requires a certain expertise. You will want to look for someone who has
dealt with this style of case before and is willing to handle even these harsher
allegations. Of course, comparing firms and the experience and education level of the
attorney or attorneys found there is key. You may also want to inquire about past,
similar cases and the results of those student cases.
You will want to find someone who will investigate on their own and fight for your rights.
Some colleges tend to want to handle these cases quickly or automatically expel those
who are accused in order to avoid a negative reputation. However, this is your life that is
in their hands and you deserve a normal, just case. Finding a lawyer who is ready to
take on the university and demand a fair case can help make or break your education
career and life.
