One of the most important steps to take when a person finds himself accused of a campus sexual misconduct case under Title IX is to take a step back. Do not speak to the school or others without taking the necessary precautions. Tell your parents, tell your family what's going on. Make certain that you have an experienced attorney advisor in your corner from as early as possible in the process. They can ensure that your rights are going to be protected.
Do not speak to the school. Do not go to any meetings or interviews before these steps can be taken. Notice has to be narrowed down in terms of the notice that the school has to provide regarding the specific allegations at hand. Often that's a concern at many schools. In terms of those interviews with the investigators, they have to be approached in a certain matter. All evidence has to be preserved because there's the prospect, or these cases are rife for potential issues. Everything should be documented with the school. There's many, many steps that need to be taken. The most important step is to make sure that you have an experienced attorney advisor in your corner helping through the process.
