Being accused of a sexual crime is serious business that often comes with far-reaching impacts regardless of the final legal outcome. Title IX of the Education Amendments Act offers powerful protection for students who were the victims of assault and misconduct in school, but can also lead to unnecessary harm to students who were falsely accused. While Title IX grants these students the right to a fair hearing, a number of educational institutions have been accused of treating accused students unfairly, forcing them into difficult situations they never should have been in.

What Is Title IX?

The Education Amendments Act of 1972 covers all schools in the United States that receive funds from the nation’s Department of Education, including elementary schools, high schools, and universities. Title IX of this Act was intended to provide students who were the victim of sexual assault or discrimination with the ability to sue their institution if it fails to protect them from these issues. It states that,

“No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.” – Title IX of the Education Amendments Act of 1972

When a student is accused of a sex crime by another student, the school must then initiate a Title IX action to investigate those accusations.

What Happens During A Title IX Action?

Following the accusation, the school will initiate an administrative hearing to evaluate those accusations where it will decide whether or not to take disciplinary actions based on their findings. The accused student’s representation will play a key role here and will help prepare them for the entire process. Some of the potential disciplinary actions your student may face include:

  • Expulsion

  • Suspension

  • Restricted access to certain campus areas

  • Withholding transcripts and/or degrees

  • Issue a no contact order with other students
