How can I help my child appeal a college sexual misconduct case in Kentucky? VIDEO

When appealing your child's university sexual misconduct case in Kentucky, it's important to familiarize yourself with the college or university's policies on appeals. Different schools are going to have different appeal processes. For example, at some schools, the appeal process would take place after finding of responsibility and/or sanction after an investigation or a hearing. At other schools, the appeal process would actually start the hearing process.

It's important to understand this aspect of the appeal process. It's also important to understand your school's allowable grounds for an appeal. Different schools are going to have different basis' for an appeal, but often, they're are similar. For example, disproportionate sanction, new evidence originally not available at an early time in the process, procedural error or defect which led to an adverse outcome.

It's important to meet the school's allowable grounds for the appeal and to also meet the school's deadline for the appeal. You should never go through the disciplinary process on your own. If your son or daughter finds it necessary to appeal a finding responsibility under sanction in a university sexual misconduct case, having an experienced attorney-adviser is going to be their best ally through the process.
