COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — An Ohio State University official says it's not clear whether anyone ever went to authorities to report a former doctor now accused of sexually abusing more than 150 male students.

The school's provost says the report doesn't address whether university employees went to law enforcement or if they were required to at the time.
