When Sexual Assault Or Harassment Charges Threaten To Drag You Down
It is no small matter to be accused of a sex crime or unethical conduct such as sexual harassment. Your freedom, reputation and future are at stake in such situations.
As criminal defense and employment law attorneys, we encounter many clients in the world of secondary and higher education who face challenging Title IX cases. They are sometimes coaches, professors, graduate assistants or fraternity leaders who have been targeted in sexual harassment claims by students or student-athletes.
We also defend people who are under investigation or have been charged with sex crimes of many varieties.

A conviction for any type of sexual assault can mean a lengthy prison sentence, high fines, sex offender registration and/or lifelong monitoring. You can also lose your professional license and/or the custody of your children as a result of your sexual assault charges or conviction.
Beware Of Sexual Harassment Accusations
Accusations of sexual harassment in educational and/or employment settings often do not rise to the level of criminal charges, but the consequences can be severe. You may lose tenure, be fired and/or experience unwanted publicity, making it difficult or impossible for you to get another position.
Additionally, your immigration status will be at risk if you are in the U.S. with a work visa, green card or Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) status. With sexual assault or harassment accusations, you might lose your right to live and work in the United States and/or be eligible for naturalization as a U.S. citizen.
