Should I Remain Silent?

From the moment allegations are made know, it is important for a student to immediately exercise caution and not think that it is no big deal. They should not talk about the incident to anyone, including: friends, classmates, professors, administrators, or even campus police. Even if summoned, the accused should not speak about the matter until they can obtain an advisor and consult with them. This is their right. Once the advisor has been picked, they can postpone, as necessary, any meetings until after a strategy has been developed.
