Ohio State board to hear from ex-stu­dents al­leg­ing sex abuse

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - SPORTS -

COLUM­BUS, OHIO (AP) >> Ohio State Univer­sity’s trustees will hear di­rectly from for­mer stu­dents who say they were sex­u­ally abused by a team doc­tor, al­le­ga­tions that span the late physi­cian’s two decades at the school.

Alum­nus Brian Gar­rett says he and other ac­cusers of Dr. Richard Strauss asked to speak so they can share their sto­ries, seek help and re­quest changes. He says they don’t want to dis­cuss their law­suits against Ohio State.

The board says it’s set­ting aside 20 min­utes to hear stu­dents’ sto­ries at next Fri­day’s trustees’ meet­ing

Strauss killed him­self in 2005. His rel­a­tives have said they’re shocked by the al­le­ga­tions first raised in April.
