Standing Up For The Rights Of Your College Student
If you have a child in college and they have been accused of sexual misconduct under Title IX of the Higher Education Act, then you probably feel terrified for their future. Many people treat accused students as guilty until proven innocent instead of innocent until proven guilty. You should immediately seek the help of an attorney who has criminal defense experience and understands how academic disciplinary systems in Texas work.
I am Maria Antu, a criminal defense attorney with more than 18 years of experience. At The Antu Law Firm, PLLC, I believe strongly in protecting college students’ rights by providing aggressive yet compassionate legal counsel.
Navigating Academic Disciplinary Procedures
Colleges and universities have their own forms of discipline when it comes to Title IX offenses, including suspension and expulsion. Having represented numerous college students attending institutions throughout the state, I understand what these processes look like. I can explain what to expect and how you and I can protect the rights of your child. Every student deserves a second chance, and I do whatever it takes to prevent them from being suspended or expelled.
Sex Crime Defense From A Former Prosecutor
Many Title IX cases also involve a criminal investigation – or even an arrest or formal charges. As a former prosecutor, I have litigated countless sex offense cases, including:
- Sexual assault
- Sexual battery
- Indecent exposure
I know what the other side looks for when putting together its evidence, so I know what it takes to build a cohesive defense. There is nothing more important to me than shielding your child from the impact of consequences such as sex offender registration or incarceration.
