Strauss showered with Ohio State University athletes, soaping himself while ogling them, and he performed lengthy genital examinations, even if a male student was being seen for a head cold or injured finger.
According to the 232-page investigative report: 22 coaches, 18 student athletic trainers, and five team physicians across multiple sports confirmed they were aware of rumors or complaints about Strauss’ misconduct. At the Student Health Center, the director assigned “chaperones” to keep an eye on Strauss in the exam rooms.

Meanwhile, current Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost and former AGs Richard Cordray, Nancy Rogers, Jim Petro, Betty Montgomery and Lee Fisher sent a letter to legislative leaders, urging them to eliminate the statute of limitations on rape, which is currently 20 years. Former AG Marc Dann, who resigned from office under a cloud, said he was not asked to sign the letter but supports the idea.
Gov. Mike DeWine, who served eight years as AG, also called on lawmakers to wipe out the statute of limitations on rape.
