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

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.

A law firm investigating abuse claims has heard from at least 145 ex-students who have shared firsthand accounts of alleged misconduct by Strauss between 1979 and 1997.
