Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Dailycaller.com: “Ohio State Team Doctor Allegedly Abused Nearly 200 Male Students Over 18 Years: Report”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Ohio State University employees allegedly failed to act in a timely manner on claims that a university team doctor was sexually abusing student athletes — and at least 177 students were abused over roughly two decades, according to a long-anticipated report released Friday.

The independent investigation found the late Dr. Richard Strauss’s alleged habit of abusing male students was an “open secret” known by coaches, trainers, other team doctors and school leaders, reported The Associated Press.

The report included information gathered from hundreds of former students and university employees. Strauss died by suicide in 2005 after working at the university from 1978 to 1998, reported USA Today. (RELATED: Police: Missing Pregnant Teen Found Dead, Baby Cut From Her Stomach)

The report found Strauss abused male students involved in at least 16 sports, and students described his examinations as being “hazed,” according to the AP.
