I was charged with violating Title V act in California University executive order 1080
subsection 7(Conduct that threatens or endangers the health or saftey of any person within or related to the Uiversity community, including physical abuse, threats, intimation, harrassment, or sexual misconduct)
16(Violation of any published university policy, rule, regulation or presidential order)
18(Any act chargeable as a violation of a federal, state, or local law that poses a substantial threat to the safety
or well being of members of the university community, to property within the university community or poses a significan threat to disruption or interference with university operations. )
As far as I'm concern, the university started this matter as a sexual harassment investigation claiming that I had posted pictures of a student on a website. I don't understand why they are even involved considering if it wasn't conducted on the campus and why I was charged with so much if it's only one action.
Now they are offering me to accept suspension to avoid further disciplinary and resolve the matter. I'm not sure if there will be any consequences to this. Also, Would the accuser try to file claims or reports outside of the school? I don't understand why he/she just can't settle matters with me if the claims were that accurate.
I am a little worry. Is sexual harassment/online a civil or crime? Should I expect anything soon? This has occurred a year ago according to their reports. How can I combat this or protect myself. As far as I'm concerned, there is absolutely no physical contact with anyone nor is there any verbal threats that will endanger or harm any individual.
