Understanding Sexual Assault on Campus
There is a problem with an increased number of sexual assault and harassment incidents on college and university campuses across the country. A national report was released from the Sexual Assault Response Team to examine how incidents of sexual assault were handled at colleges and universities. The Department of Education is working to address these issues, but it has not been enough to prevent crimes from taking place.
The types of crimes that are considered sexual assault include:
- Sexual Abuse
- Aggravated Sexual Assault
- Sexual Coercion
- Sexual Battery
- Sexual Assault
- Criminal Sexual Conduct
Under federal law, Title IX of the Education Amendments, protects from discrimination on the basis of sex at education institutions. However, many people do not realize it also protects against different forms of campus sexual assault.
When a sexual assault takes places on campus it can be hard to have your voice heard. Too often victims are ignored and a thorough investigation is not conducted. While representing you we will thoroughly investigate your case to gather the evidence we need in order to be successful in your litigation.
