The Importance of Title IX in Sexual Assault Cases in South Carolina High Schools
Title IX cases are serious, especially when it comes to sexual assault allegations involving high school students. It can be devastating for both the victim and the accused student, considering the lifelong repercussions that come with such accusations. In South Carolina alone, sexual assaults at high schools have been reported by local news stations, underscoring the gravity of these issues.
The Importance Of Knowing Title IX Procedures In South Carolina High Schools
Title IX is a crucial statutory provision that has been put in place to protect students from discrimination and abuse based on their sex or gender. Your child’s school must adhere to Title IX regulations in treating cases of violent sexual misconduct as criminal offenses. Violent sexual harassment, stalking, and one-time incidents fall under this provision.
In addition, all South Carolina high schools must create a clear policy for student conduct that prohibits violence and harassment while providing clear guidelines on punishments for offenders. Grounds for expulsion must also be outlined in detail within this policy.
Under the Sexual Assault Protocol from the office of the South Carolina Attorney General, students aged 17 years old and above who engage in acts of serious sexual misconduct can face felony charges. Therefore, it is critical to educate yourself about your child’s rights under Title IX laws so you can prepare your best defense against false allegations.
The Need For A Strong Title IX Advisor
Due to tight timelines that regulate Title IX cases, there is a limited time frame between an initial complaint being filed against an accused student and his or her case going to hearing: Just 15 days for hearings with written recommendations for expulsion followed by ten days after said hearing within which a decision needs to be rendered.
For those falsely accused of these crimes – among others – having a seasoned and hard-working attorney adviser during these distressing times may prove invaluable due to their experience with more than one thousand cases like yours already.
Fighting for Your Child’s Future
If you feel like your child has been falsely accused, it is important to take steps to protect your child from any undeserved punishment. As such, it may be critical to get in touch with a knowledgeable Title IX advisor who can make sure that all investigations, hearings and appeals are conducted according to due processes.
