Charged With A Crime?

Aug 01

Charges for Sex crimes, sexual offenses, and sexual abuse continue to be a large problem at Colorado colleges and universities.

The Colorado Crush For Investigation of Sex Crimes on College Grounds

Colorado Colleges and Universities have been under increasing scrutiny from the Department of Education and the Justice Department. Last year, 2011, the Department issued new guidellines to provide guidance to colleges and universities in responding to sex crimes on campuses.

The Department has emphasized that under Title IX, schools are charged with the responsibility to end sexual harassment, which includes sexual assault tadalafil citrate. The Department of Justice has also instituted investigations into the responses to allegations of sexual abuse at certain specific colleges – for example Yale University and the University of Montana.

The investigation and defense of sex crimes, whether on a college campus or elsewhere, requires particular experience and sensitivity. If you have been accused of these crimes require excellent and aggressive representation at the earliest stages of an investigation.

The Focus:

  • Federal law requires that colleges receiving federal aid tell the public how many serious crimes – including sexual assaults – occur on campus. This is called the Clery Report. But at three of Colorado’s largest universities, counselors report neither details nor the aggregated number of alleged sexual assaults they learn about from clients.
  • The U.S. Justice Department is about to launch a training program for college victim assistance officials. Already, at least one college in Colorado – the University of Northern Colorado – has decided its victim assistance office will begin adding its tally of sexual assault cases to what’s reported publicly, which is known as the Clery Report.

Bureau of Justice Statistics, reported:

  • Among college women, nine in 10 victims of rape and sexual assault knew their offender.
  • Almost 12.8 percent of completed rapes, 35 percent of attempted rapes, and 22.9 percent of threatened rapes happened during a date.
  • It is estimated that for every 1,000 women attending a college or university, there are 35 incidents of rape each academic year.
  • Off-campus sexual victimization is much more common among college women than on-campus victimization. Of victims of completed rape, 33.7 percent were victimized on campus and 66.3 percent off campus.
  • Less than 5 percent of completed or attempted rapes against college women were reported to law enforcement. However, in two third of the incidents the victim did tell another person, usually a friend, not family or school officials.

This new focus – using DOJ statistics has led to a large increase in FALSE ALLEGATIONS of sexual assault… do not wait – seek expert legal representation as soon as possible.
