Recent press accounts tell the remarkable story of a Clemson University student's seven-year fight to clear his name after another student's false accusations of sexual assault resulted in his year-long university suspension. The wrongly accused student eventually won that fight after a key witness admitted lying to support the complainant's fabricated story. The accused student received a monetary settlement and cleared record from the university before winning a mammoth $5.3 million defamation lawsuit against the accuser and a lying witness. Justice is possible, even in the worst of situations, if you have the perseverance and professional help to prove the lies against you. If you face false accusations of college or university sexual or other misconduct, trust that you, too, can, with aggressive and effective attorney-advisor representation, defeat those accusations to avoid school discipline.

The Sad and Sordid Story
The accused student's sad and sordid story is probably like hundreds of similar stories nationwide. Another student took a romantic interest in the accused student, pursuing him for weeks until he relented. After the two engaged in a brief sexual encounter, the pursuer and her on-and-off-again boyfriend concocted a story that the accused student had sexually assaulted his pursuer. The concocted allegations led to a false Title IX complaint and the accused student's year-long university suspension. But the on-and-off-again boyfriend eventually had a change of heart, texting the accused student his admission that they had fabricated the whole thing. Key text messages further proved the truth of what the accused student had maintained all along, that the complainant had aggressively pursued him for the consensual sexual encounter. That new evidence gained the accused student's full restoration, but not until after seven years of Title IX administrative proceedings and due process court litigation.
How to Defeat False Allegations
Many college and university misconduct cases involve false statements. Sexual misconduct cases, in particular, often involve he said/she said disputes where the complainant and accused students tell virtually opposite stories. The above account shows again, though, how wrongly accused students can, with skilled and experienced college misconduct defense attorney-advisor representation, defeat false charges. The accused student's attorney-advisor must identify , preserve, and present key evidence like texts, photographs, and video, corroborating the accused student's account. And the accused student's attorney-advisor must also help the accused student secure and present corroborating statements from truthful witnesses while preparing skilled cross-examinations for lying witnesses. The truth will come out, with the right skilled and experienced representation.
