A man who says he was abused by former Ohio State University doctor Richard Strauss in the 1990s wants state lawmakers to get rid of the time limit to file legal claims of sexual abuse.

Ohio State University released new information Thursday on the investigation into a former team doctor accused of molesting more than 100 athletes and students.  The latest update suggests fact-gathering could conclude within months.

Three-hundred thirty-five interviews. One-hundred forty-five firsthand accounts of abuse. Five-hundred twenty-five boxes of records and potentially as many more.

Ohio State University President Michael Drake hopes the school learns how to prevent future abuse from the investigation into former team doctor Dr. Richard Strauss, who is accused of molesting students.  Federal officials opened their own inquiry into the school’s handling of the scandal.

The gears of the university’s investigation have been turning since April, and now officials at the U.S. Department of Education are launching a Title IX probe of their own.

The investigation into allegations of sexual abuse against a former Ohio State doctor has nearly doubled to include athletes from 14 sports and non-students from outside of campus.

Lawmakers call it a silent epidemic as an alarming number of children are sexually abused but don’t feel safe enough to ask for help.

 

A bipartisan bill in the House would require sexual-abuse education so kids can learn the difference between good touch and bad touch and connect to resources if they feeln they’re being abused. Republican Rep. Christina Hagan of Alliance says kids don’t speak out because they’re afraid of what their attackers might do.
