Ohio State says more victims in the alleged physician misconduct

COLUMBUS, Ohio-Ohio State officials say more people coming forward with reports of alleged sexual misconduct by a former university of the arts.

The university said Thursday that former male student-athletes from more than a dozen athletic teams have now reported sexual misconduct by Dr. Richard Strauss, who died in 2005.

A lawyer handling the probe on behalf of the Ohio State told a trustees committee 130 people were interviewed that information “relevant to the investigation.” Reports also came from ex-patients of Student Health Services.

Ohio State University President Michael Drake had asked alumni for assistance in the investigation, by sending an e-mail last month to more than 100,000 who have attended the university of the middle of the 1970s until the mid-1990s, when the alleged misconduct has occurred.
