College Sexual Misconduct Accusations

Defending College Students Accussed of Sex Crimes

College & Universities Sexual Misconduct Board hearings

The attorneys at James E Crawford Jr. & Associates, LLC, are experienced in defending and representing college students who find themselves accused of sexual misconduct.

Most colleges and universities have provisions and rules regarding sexual misconduct. If you are accused by another student or professor of sexual misconduct it could result in suspension, being expelled, or being asked to leave a dorm.

The problem with these types of charges is that the individuals who "hear" the cases are usually professors or another college student/s. They usually have absolutely no experience with sexual allegations including the fact that sometimes the allegations are completely false. That is why these matters need to be handled with "kid" gloves to ensure a positive outcome. 

For the last 30 years, I’ve developed a reputation for handling these matters in a diligent and successful manner.


Don't Let This Accusation Put Your Future at Risk

Most college misconduct violations may also be criminal charges. Before you speak with the school or other law enforcement official, please consult an attorney ahead of time.

It is extremely important to understand the school's code of conduct thoroughly so that you can be protected at the hearing.

College Sexual Misconduct Charges

The accusations were outlandish, false, and slandered both my character and my name. I was in need to find strong legal representation that would see through the fabricated story. [My attorney Aaron] Goodwin’s priority was to understand who I am as a person before putting together any type of defense strategy. The result was a favorable decision on my behalf. I am confident that without the firm’s representation, the outcome would have been different.
