Learn how a Title IX Polygraph or Title 9 Lie Detector Test can help you.
Title IX of US Department of Education Amendments of 1972 is a federal civil rights law in the United States of America. It prohibits sex-based discrimination in any school or other education program that receives federal money.
It comes into play when students are sexually harassed or becomes victims of sexual violence. When this interferes with the students' right to receive an education free from discrimination and, in the case of sexual violence, it is a crime.
Most schools and universities have a process for investigating a Title IX allegation. One example is here, where a public Texas university outlines the process in detail. The school can be held responsible in court whether the harassment is committed by a faculty member, staff, or a student. To be held responsible, the college or university must have authority over the harasser and over the environment in which the harassment takes place.
When allegations of sexual assault or sexual misconduct are reported to a college or university, they begin an investigation under Title IX. The investigation generally begins with the university notifying the subject of the investigation of the allegations, and inviting that person in for an interview.
But Title IX investigations are unlike criminal investigations in that they allow more types of evidence to be used. This can be particularly useful when there is no other physical proof.
Your lawyer, like a criminal lawyer, can schedule your polygraph examination (lie detector test) confidentially. If you get a passing result, you can turn the report over the the Title IX investigator. While such a report might not be admissible in a court, no such evidentiary rules apply in a Title IX investigation. Further, the process can also fall under the concept of Attorney Client Privilege.
If you are under investigation by a college or university for sexual assault or sexual misconduct, you should contact an attorney who is experienced in handling Title IX matters immediately.
