I advise many clients who have been falsely accused of sexual misconduct.  The reasons for these false accusations are many: revenge, jealousy, spite, embarrassment, mental illness, etc.  Many educational institutions instruct their students that "regret means rape" and I have had several clients who have been accused of sexual misconduct by former girlfriends more than a year after they broke up.  If you have been falsely accused of sexual misconduct, don't make the mistake of assuming that your school will give you justice after a fair hearing.  The system is seriously broken and most Title IX investigations and hearings amount to nothing more than modern day witch hunts.  Many schools, urged on by the "Me Too" hysteria and overreaction, employ so-called "trauma informed" investigations that assume the "victim" is telling the truth and prohibit the investigators from challenging her story or even questioning her about the details.  Many hearing procedures deny you the right to an attorney, the right to present evidence and even the right confront your accuser.  The result is a horrible injustice - not just to those students who are falsely accused and wrongfully punished, but also to real victims of actual sexual assault whose cases are tainted by this unjust process.
