Who hires those cleared of rape charges by Title IX tribunals at universities?

“Judge Drops Rape Case Against U.S.C. Student, Citing Video Evidence” (nytimes):

In the early hours of April 1, neither student at the University of Southern California knew what the other had had to drink. An Uber was called, and the male student was seen on video following the female student into her dorm, where they had sex.

The woman later told the police she did not remember the encounter, and in May, prosecutors charged the male student, Armaan Premjee, 20, with rape. But a California judge dismissed the case last week after reviewing security video from the Banditos nightclub in Los Angeles and the woman’s dorm.

The videos showed the woman leading Mr. Premjee from the club, taking his photograph, following him into an Uber and, at her dorm, swiping an access card and allowing him inside.

The judge said during a preliminary hearing last week that he believed that the sex was consensual and that the videos were a “very strong indication” the woman was the initiator, according to reports.

Employers Googling for background won’t find anything when the accuser (“the woman”) applies for a job, but for in any background check on Armaan Premjee, “a junior studying business administration,” it will be tough to miss this unfortunate incident.

Premjee isn’t in the clear yet:

A student misconduct investigation involving Mr. Premjee within the university’s Title IX office remains active.

But let’s assume that he does beat the rap. Who is going to hire him? What employer would take the risk of having an accused rapist as a business manager? Google won’t be hiring Mr. Premjee to replace James Damore, right?

    Well, he can always transition over to hanging drywall where female percentage is about 0.1% and his danger to the female community would be commensurate. He can also become a manager in the industry thus not wasting the valuable education he obtained at USC.

    “But let’s assume that he does beat the rap. Who is going to hire him?”

    The same employers who hire people who survive getting thrown off the top of the Empire State Building. A more realistic question would be, “Who is going to hire him when the witch hunt reaches its inevitable conclusion?”

    Just today I was having a dinner with my German friends (males and females) and I asked them if they had heard anything about the Title IX tribunals in American universities. They had not heard about it before, and when I explained that this was a parallel court system to the state justice system they replied, “Oh yes, we have those – they’re called Sharia courts. Usually the muslim immigrants do it.”

    I never thought about it that way, but it was a good point – in some ways it is analogous – you have parallel courts driven by an ideology, whether it be Islam or Third wave feminism.

    Mr. Premjee should forget about trying to get a job in corporate America after he graduates and, instead, go to medical or dental school, then start his own practice. Medicine turned out well for William Kennedy Smith.

    Well, if not medicine, then master a trade and work for himself.

    Who will hire him, indeed?
    Feminist mission accomplished.

    Disclosing the names of people who have been arrested is a practice designed to prevent secret incarceration, and the disclosure of the charges is there to demand that the police (or, in general, the government) can provide a plausible reason for the arrest(s).

    People are welcome to analyse what is the least harm in cases of criminal sexual misconduct — avoiding secret detention and charges vs protecting the privacy of someone who has not been found guilty by the courts — but that is an adult conversation which I do not see happening.

    @Federico, then let’s stop not disclosing the names of false accusers, and calling them “survivors” on top of everything else.

    I believe serial killer Jesse Matthew, now incarcerated for the murders of Hannah Graham and Morgan Harrington, had been subject to Title IX investigations twice (at Liberty U and at Christopher Newport U where he’d played on the football teams), and yet he was hired by the UVA Medical Center as a patient transporter. While Matthew has only been convicted of one rape & attempted murder (in 2005) and 2 murders (in 2009 and 2014), it’s likely that he was responsible for a string of disappearances of young women in the Charlottesville area from the late aughts until mid-September 2014 when he abducted Hannah Graham from the now infamous Downtown Mall (scene of yesterday’s violence).

    Assuming someone is prosecuted for perverting the course of justice/perjury/whatever else, said person would not be anonymous anymore, that is a guaranteed fact. As always, the issue is *prosecuted for said crime*, that is, a prosecution is needed for names to be revealed — the fact charges are dismissed is not even close to the mark.

    I know some people who were arrested and have worked for large and mid-size companies, one even becoming a manager in software industry after being kick-out from his financial careers at large investment bank (he had good character traits overlap with what was required in his environment but arrest record is not tolerated in top investment banks)
    Most of them of course did not get stable careers with constant promotion in largest companies but so faired many more smart and even brilliant arrest-free individuals who wanted to retain some integrity. I am sure it is a huge loss for this dude who things nothing of drunken sex parties, he is not likely to care about integrity.

    Philip,

    Couldn’t Armaan begin to identify as female? Since women aren’t responsible for their actions when intoxicated, people would know that she wasn’t guilty of anything….
