Campus Sexual Assault
Rape on Campus: University of Virginia Rape and its Aftermath
As attorneys who represent victims of campus sexual assault and rape, we applaud survivors like Jackie for their strength and courage in telling their stories.
Marsh Law Firm represented Stacy who is profiled in this article in Rolling Stone. Our case was one of only fourteen in UVA history where the perpetrator was found guilty. Stacy’s perpetrator was suspended. It’s unlikely that many of the other thirteen guilty offenders were even suspended. None of the fourteen guilty offenders were expelled.
The assistance and advice of an attorney is essential for victims to ensure the integrity and fairness of the campus disciplinary system, the thoroughness and appropriateness of the questions asked, and the pros and cons of the myriad of choices—criminal, civil, and disciplinary—for achieving some measure of justice.
Please contact us if you were raped or sexually assaulted on campus. Our lawyers are experienced with the civil, criminal, and disciplinary options facing victims and survivors.
