The honors student who was allowed to graduate
An honors student with a 4.0 GPA at a top ten university was accused of sexual assault. He hired a very well regarded, large national law firm to represent him in the disciplinary proceedings. He was found responsible, suspended, and told he wouldn’t be able to graduate with his class. The large firm reached out to us to help with the appeal. We argued that there wasn’t enough evidence to show that a person in his position would have thought the complaining witness was incapacitated. The finding was unanimously reversed on appeal; our client was exonerated and graduated with the rest of his classmates.
