What should I do if my child is facing a Title IX case at their high school in Kentucky? VIDEO

If your child is facing a Title IX case at their high school in Kentucky, you need to take the necessary precautions before you engage with the school in any capacity, too much is at stake. Although the Title IX Final Rule allows for a more structured and arguably equitable process than previous guidance, you cannot assume it will be a fair process.

It will require dedicated effort for an accused student to be found not responsible. The Title IX Final Rule also allows for high school to use either an investigation or a live hearing model. Each has its own pros and cons, so you need to familiarize yourself with how the school will address and adjudicate the case.

It is a high stakes and an involved process. Each step through the process needs to be calculated. An experienced attorney-advisor will be your son or daughter's best ally if they're facing a Title IX case at their high school in Kentucky and they should be involved from as early as possible in the process to help work towards a favorable outcome.

It is critical to make certain the Title IX investigation at your child's Kentucky high school is handled properly and that the accused student's interests and rights are protected from as early as possible during the sexual misconduct investigative process.  One major reason is because even at high schools where a finding of responsibility for sexual misconduct charges is made at a hearing, the investigation will set the stage for what the hearing panel is provided prior to a hearing (and what the hearing panel will in large part rely on at a hearing), and at high schools where the finding of responsibility is made solely through the investigative process, what takes place during the investigation itself will determine whether the accused student is found responsible or not responsible for Title IX charges.

Unfortunately, some parents make the mistake of not taking the necessary precautions as soon as possible when accused of sexual misconduct.  Some people will mistakenly believe that if they "just explain what happened," their school will be fair and impartial and will arrive at the truth.  In a perfect world this may be the case, but in a perfect world, sexual misconduct allegations and Title IX charges would not exist.
