It is no secret that college students across the United States are some of the most stressed people out there. With all of their day-to-day responsibilities between schoolwork and actual work, it is no wonder so many use Spring Break as a time to unwind, let their worries go, and really go wild with parties. However, as a party gets more and more exciting, the odds of someone getting accused of a serious crime also increase.
Criminal accusations commonly associated with Spring Break partying include:
- Drugging persons for sexual intercourse
- Assault and battery
- Drug possession
- Drug distribution
- Identity fraud
- Public intoxication
If you are a college student who has been accused of just one of these crimes, then your entire educational future is hanging in the balance. A conviction for a serious crime could convince a dean or school board to eject you from classes or the entire university, which puts a black mark on your record when you try to apply to other schools in the future. The likelihood of consequences that circle around to destroy your hard-earned education increase if your accuser also attends your university.
College sex crimes in particular put you at serious risk of an early end to your education due to Title IX regulations. When one student is accused of sexually assaulting another, colleges and universities are bound by Title IX laws to take near-immediate action. In most cases, this means assuming the accused is guilty and using administrative penalties, like ejection from the university. Since school boards are not part of the criminal justice system, they have the authority to move forward with their chosen penalties unimpeded by typical criminal law processes that allow someone to be seen as innocent until proven guilty. If you have been accused of a college sex crime over Spring Break, youmust act fast in your defense.
