Question:

What should an Oklahoma State University student do if they’ve been charged with a crime?

Answer:

All towns that have a major university has their own student conduct board. This board monitors what their students do in the community. If you’re charged with a crime, the student conduct is going to interview you. If a complaint is made to the student conduct board against you but no crime is filed against you, the student conduct board will also question you. They also can have a hearing.

The student conduct boards across the state only have a preponderance of the evidence burden, which means it’s more probable true than false that you did what your accuser said you did. That’s not a very high bar. More often than not, you’re in trouble.OSU Student Conduct OffenseIn the criminal courts across the state of Oklahoma, it’s beyond a reasonable doubt. That means that if there’s any possible doubt or any possible reason this could have happened other than what the state says, you’re going to be dismissed and you’re going to be found not guilty. I caution anybody when you deal with a student conduct board, you need to be very careful. You need to seek representation. Lawyers cannot go to the hearing with you and say anything; you’re on your own, but we can advise you and counsel you on how to deal with it, and what to say, and what not to say when you get there.
