Title IX Penalties for Students & Staff
When you are accused of sexual assault or a sex-based crime on campus, there are two separate places looking to determine the appropriate penalty: your university and the Connecticut criminal justice system.
Your university will determine its course of action based on what happens during your Title IX hearing. The state of Connecticut will, if needed, conduct its own investigation to determine whether or not to move forward with criminal charges.
If you are a student, you could face one or several of the following consequences depending on the outcome of your Title IX hearing and criminal investigation:
- Suspension from campus activities
- Dismissal from athletic programs
- Suspension from the university
- Expulsion from the university
- Criminal charges such as sexual misconduct, sexual assault, or a violent crime
- Possible jail time and/or heavy fines
