Massage Therapist Targeted OSU Student-Athletes for Sex

COLUMBUS, Ohio (WTVN)--The Ohio State University says a massage therapist targeted student-athletes for sexual activity.

The school conducted an independent investigation into the activity of a 41-year-old woman, who claimed to be affiliated with the university, and reached out to dozens of student-athletes on social media.

The activity occurred over a three-year period, and included contacting football players on their signing day.

OSU Police contacted her in March of 2021, and advised her not to have any contact with student-athletes, but the activity continued after that.

The findings of the report have been forwarded to prosecutors for any possible criminal charges. OSU Athletics Director Gene Smith says the activity endangered the health and safety of student-athletes.

The woman has also been ordered to stay off of university property.
