Campus Sexual Assault Defense
Our Experienced Akron Criminal Defense Attorney Can Help!
President Obama’s “It’s On Us” campaign highlights
sexual assault that occurs on college campuses. The campaign aims to bring
awareness of sexual harassment and assault that happen in schools. Under
the movement, everyone is held accountable for reporting and stopping
sexual assault. The campaign, however, puts more pressure on accused individuals,
who have not been convicted.
If you are charged with sexual assault on a campus, under Title IX laws,
you are given a hearing by the university. Schools are pushing to enforce
harsher punishments against such charges. Accused offenders can potentially
be expelled without a trial hearing. Unfortunately, the proof burden falls
on the accused. That is why qualified legal representation is necessary.

Protecting Your Future
Sexual assault charges can cause great harm, both emotionally and for your
future. I believe that those accused deserve the right to a fair trial
and due diligence of the law. They are innocent until proven guilty. It
is difficult to show this during university hearings. With the President’s
new campaign, schools have extra pressure to punish those accused of sexual
assault. Campus hearings are not the same as court hearings.
Some ways campus hearings differ from those of the courtroom:
- You do not get to ask questions from the plaintiff
- You are not presumed innocent
- You must present evidence to prove your innocence
- You may not be able to appeal verdicts
If you are convicted of sexual assault, you may be expelled. Not only does
this affect your education, it can also impact your future professional
and academic career. If charged, you deserve to be tried in court, with
lawful due diligence.
I have spent my career helping protect those who have been wrongfully accused
