Debra Bogaards can help you as your Title IX Sexual Harassment or Sexual Violence advisor.
Title IX requires your school to investigate claims of sexual violence and sexual harassment against students. In her most recent cases, Ms. Bogaards represented a female student accused by a male student of forcing him to engage in sexual activity without his consent, and aggravating the sexual assault by becoming physically violent. She also represented a male student accused of forcing his regular "hook up" to have intercourse without effective consent due to intoxication and videotaping the intercourse, and distributing the videotape to another female student so they could have a threesome.
