Should I communicate with school administrators if I was accused of campus sexual assault?

 

No, you should not communicate with school administrators until the given time. You need to take a step back. You should let your parents know what's going on. You should not speak to school administrators or anyone else until you take the necessary precautions. Too much is at stake. Schools are often in a rush to judgment. Schools do not have an accused student's rights and interests in mind, and schools unfortunately at times do not play by their own rules.

Too much is at stake. You have to take the necessary precautions before engaging in any meetings or interviews with the school. Schools will often welcome or invite a meeting under the guise that it's an opportunity to speak, it's an educational opportunity. You cannot believe what they're saying. The school is not necessarily the enemy, but they're not necessarily your friend either. An experienced attorney advisor will be able to help you understand what's at stake, how to gauge the case, and what needs to take place in an effort to achieve the most favorable outcome.
