Were You the Victim of Campus Sexual Assault?

Sexual assault on college campuses happens more often than any of us would like to believe. Too often, schools look the other way, especially when the accusations involve athletes, coaches or prominent faculty members. This can leave the victim feeling victimized a second time.

At Tremont Sheldon Robinson Mahoney P.C. in Bridgeport, we have dedicated a significant portion of our law practice to representing victims of sexual abuse. Our attorneys have successfully held boarding schools and other educational institutions accountable when they failed to protect students. If you were sexually assaulted at a college, call us at 203-212-9075 for a free case evaluation. Our lawyers represent clients throughout Connecticut.

Criminal and Civil Remedies for Victims of Sexual Assault

If you have been sexually assaulted on a college campus, your attacker may be subject to criminal charges. If the institution was negligent in handling your sexual assault case, you may also have a civil case against the institution.

Colleges may be negligent if they:

  • Fail to report cases of sexual assault to police
  • Fail to follow the school’s own sexual assault policies
  • Fail to conduct appropriate background checks on teachers and staff, who may use their positions of authority to abuse students

Teacher-Student Relationships and Sexual Assault

A sexual relationship between a student and a professor is not the same as a relationship between two consenting adults. Even if you are over 18, your professor is in a position of authority over you. Pressuring you for sex may be considered sexual harassment. You may have a cause of action against the school in this case.
