St. John’s University is a well known, and well respected university. With campuses throughout NYC, it has a large student body, and a reputation for strong academics. Students come to it from all over the world. Like all universities, it has rules and regulations designed to protect the student body. Any criminal wrongdoing that occurs on its campus is subject to the NYPD, and will be prosecuted by the local DA’s office. When an investigation occurs, there’s an arrest, followed by a D.A.T. and an indictment or trial. Regardless of the fact the crime happened on campus, it is thoroughly prosecuted. Separate from this, St. Johns’ has it’s own public safety officers, who are available in the event of an emergency. When an officer responds, he or she will address the campus regulations which are violated, or address the criminal conduct that has occurred. Once the complaint is drafted, it’s provided to the Dean of Students, for some form of investigation. All of this occurs typically, without the involvement of the NYPD.
Depending on the type of violation on campus, you may be subject to a disciplinary investigation. If you are the subject of a Title IX investigation, then you need to speak to our NYC criminal attorneys today. Regardless of where the crime occurs, you need legal representation.
