Rhode Island Student Misconduct Lawyer

Title 9 Sexual Misconduct Student Defense

College students today face an uphill battle once the allegation of sexual misconduct is made. Any allegation of sexual misconduct will immediately jeopardize that student’s enrollment and standing. Despite the presence of exonerating evidence, such as witnesses or a text history, Rhode Island schools have been expelling students at an alarming pace. While school’s offer the use of a free “advisor” for these hearings, the immediate engagement of an experienced criminal defense attorney is exactly what is necessary to avoid the harsh consequences of expulsion and a marred student transcript.
