CINCINNATI (AP) — An Ohio prosecutor says a flute instructor who was the subject of a University of Cincinnati sexual misconduct investigation won't be charged with any crime.

Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters (DEE'-turs) said in a release Thursday that his office reviewed the university's investigation and determined that no charges could be filed against former UC flute professor Bradley Garner.

Deters says the university forwarded its investigation to his office in February. The prosecutor said his office reviewed seven or eight allegations going back several years.

The star flutist has denied the accusations, calling the school's investigation a "rumor-seeking, undisciplined witch hunt."

The College-Conservatory Of Music's interim dean recommended firing Garner, but he remained until his December retirement.
