WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT TITLE IX VIOLATIONS
Title IX refers to a section of the Education Amendments Act of 1972. This federal law prohibits sexual discrimination, harassment, and assault on private and public schools that receive federal funds. Under this law, academic institutions are required to conduct an immediate and thorough investigation into any complaint of sexual misconduct, which often involves a hearing and specific grievance procedures. Title IX violations are separate from criminal charges, which may be filed separately. However, they can still lead to severe consequences.
A conviction of violating Title IX can result in:
- Expulsion or suspension from the school
- Other disciplinary actions
- Labeling as a sex offender
Once an accusation has been brought, it is important for the defendant to obtain experienced legal counsel. Evidence is essential for proving your innocence, and our Grand Rapids sex crime lawyers can conduct a thorough investigation to build your case. The social stigma of being labeled a sex offender, as well as the permanent mark on your record, may hinder your ability to seek education and employment later on. If you are also facing criminal charges, we can diligently represent you in court
