University investigations into allegations of sexual harassment lack many of the safeguards for due process and transparency that are considered routine in criminal investigations. The accused student is at a fundamental disadvantage from the very beginning of the case. That's why this is our #1 blog that Purdue students should read: being investigated for sexual harassment is the most likely disciplinary action to result in suspension and expulsion.

A criminal defense attorney who has experience serving as a student advisor in sexual harassment investigations can help by advising students on how to protect their rights, prepare for the investigator’s meeting, and effectively present evidence and testimony at the panel hearing.

Convicted of a Class D or Level 6 felony in Lafayette? Indiana law requires you to wait 8 years before you can petition for expungement. However, when clients call our office about expunging these low-level felonies, we will first seek to determine if they are potentially eligible for misdemeanor treatment.

A successful petition for misdemeanor treatment will reduce the felony conviction to a Class A misdemeanor. It will also reduce the waiting period for expungement from 8 years to 5. Call our Lafayette attorneys to find out what options are available in your case:
