Title IX Sexual Assault Defense Lawyer
Defense Lawyers Protecting University Students in St. Louis
When a college or university student is accused of sexual assault by another student, the educational institution is responsible through Title IX regulations to conduct an investigation into the matter. While the faculty investigation is supposed to be unbiased and only exert punishments when deemed justified, they are notorious for acting hastily to try to protect their own reputation. A university can also lose all federal funding if they mishandle a Title IX investigation. As a result, accused students are penalized overly harshly without ever getting a chance to defend themselves in an official setting.
University students accused of sexual assault or another sex crime can face:
- Removal from specific classes
- Suspension from all courses
- Expulsion from university or college
- Destruction of reputation and good name

It is highly encouraged that you call us at (314) 334-3807 right away if you want to make certain your educational career is not permanently damaged by a false or exaggerated accusation of sexual assault against another student.
Defend Yourself from Title IX Sexual Assault Accusations
Faculty investigations and committees that look into accusations of Title IX sexual assault accusations are entirely separate from any official law enforcement agency. In most cases, no one on investigatory committees even have a background in criminal investigations or any application of the law. This does not stop them from exercising their authority and wrongfully penalizing accused students, though. To protect your right to an education and your reputation, act quickly with our student defense attorneys to bring a convincing argument to the attention of the faculty and investigators.
For your defense case, we can consider:
- Your reputation and clean criminal record
- Infamy of accuser and if they are known for fabrications
- Accuser’s medical record that shows no signs of sexual violence
- Testimonies from trusted sources that speak of your good name
- Deconstruction of any alleged evidence of wrongdoing
- Police investigations showing no misconduct, if any exist
