Touro College and University System Arrests, Disciplinary Hearings & Title IX Misconduct Investigations

A small educational institution Touro is not. Located on multiple campuses and educating north of 18,000 students, Touro College and University System boasts a total of thirty schools in four different countries. In the metropolitan New York City area, Touro has dozens of programs for students throughout Brooklyn, Queens, Manhattan, Long Island and Westchester County. Whether you decide to commence or continue your education at the graduate schools of Education, Social Work or Health Sciences in Brooklyn, the Touro College of Dental Medicine or New York Medical College in Westchester County, the graduate school of Business or Social Work in Manhattan, or any other of its respected colleges and schools, there is likely a program where you can immerse yourself in your studies. While New York’s Touro College and University System matriculate exceptional graduates, the institution is not immune from students and faculty who run afoul of the law. Whether a student or faculty member finds him or herself under arrest for violating the New York Penal Law, accused of sexual misconduct in violation of Title IX, or they are subject to Dean’s Disciplinary Hearing due a violation of Touro’s Code of Conduct, the potential magnitude of the sanctions, penalties and punishment is frightening. If you read no further, know this. With possible exposure to criminal charges by a District Attorney and expulsion from any of its schools, at the first sign of an alleged wrongdoing or investigation at Touro, consult with an experienced college disciplinary defense attorney and New York Title IX lawyer to best navigate you through what will be an experience of the type you have never encountered.

Tour College and University System: Crimes, Codes of Conduct and Title IX Infractions

Whether you need to retain a New York criminal defense attorney, a New York Title IX lawyer, or any other legal counsel in New York to juggle your disciplinary hearing for violating the Touro Code of Conduct, the sooner you get in front of any allegation the better your chance is to overcome the accusation. Simply, you need not be charged with a crime in criminal court or expelled from your program to feel the consequences of conduct you may in fact be innocent. Why? As Dean Disciplinary lawyers and Title IX attorneys know, and you will soon find out, the legal standard in these proceedings are far less than the presumption of innocence and proof beyond a reasonable doubt standard you are afforded in the criminal justice system.

Briefly, and described further in the relevant sections, if you commit a crime on any Touro College campus, the police, such as the NYPD in New York City, can arrest and process you through a Desk Appearance Ticket or by hauling you down to Central Booking to face felony charges. At that point, the District Attorney in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens or Westchester County will prosecute you post-arrest.

Not mutually exclusive, Touro can commence its own investigation if you are accused of violating Title IX or their Code of Conduct. For example, are you accused of sexual harassment or some other gender-based discrimination that violates Title IX? Did you run astray of Touro’s Academic Integrity Policy? Have you failed to adhere to Touro’s Code of Conduct? Again, the nature of the allegation by a petitioner and the body investigating the claimed malfeasance dictates how you can and should respond. What is critical to recognize, however, is that irrespective of how you are confronted, finding yourself in jail, stripped of your ability to graduate, and tarnished with a mark on your academic record is debilitating. Whether you are trying to avoid academic probation, a suspension, expulsion or some other sanction, protecting yourself at the earliest possible stage can mean the difference between securing the necessary evidence to best advocate from a place of strength and the decimation of years of hard work that landed you a coveted spot in the college or graduate program you worked so hard to secure.

The Right Steps Today to Protect Your Future Tomorrow

Its easy to ignore or shrug off an accusation of wrongdoing on any college or university campus whether in New York City, the Hudson Valley or elsewhere in the State of New York. To do so, however, would be not a mere blunder, but a dereliction of your responsibility to protect your future. No matter the allegation – unwanted sexual advances, “upskirting,” sexual harassment, cheating on an exam, possession or sale of drugs or marijuana – a New York Title IX lawyer or New York City student misconduct attorney can make the difference between vindication or mitigation and a result that is permanent and grave.

Take the time to educate yourself on relevant laws and procedures. Best ensure you are not suspended or expelled from Touro College. Be smart and diligent, seize the initiative to identify and implement your strongest defense and, most importantly, contact the former Manhattan prosecutors, Title IX attorneys and student misconduct lawyers at Saland Law to so that knowledge, experience and advocacy is your best defense.

Client Reviews
... I was facing a class B felony and potentially tens of thousands in fines and some legit jail time and after hiring Jeremy Saland he obviously struck enough fear into the prosecutors with his sheer litigation might that it was knocked down to a petty misdemeanor and after a few sheckles and a handful of counseling sessions, I will no longer have a criminal record. The offices of Saland Law are the Shaq and Kobe of criminal defense in New York City and to even consider another firm is outright blasphemy. I stand by this statement 100% Evan
Let me start by saying how amazing Liz Crotty is! I am a resident of California, who needed representation for my son who received a desk citation while he was visiting NYC. Liz jumped on the case right away; she was very thorough in explaining things to me. She is strictly business too! She went to court on my son's behalf and had his case dismissed. I am forever grateful to her. Seana G.
