Attorney: Former OU president met with investigators

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – The attorney for former University of Oklahoma President David Boren says that Boren has met with investigators looking into allegations that he sexually harassed male subordinates.
Attorney Clark Brewster told The Oklahoman that Boren met Friday with investigators and answered all of their questions, but Brewster declined to discuss specific questions.
Boren, a former governor and U.S. Senator who retired last year after 24 years as OU president, has denied wrongdoing.
OU regents say they will meet privately with investigators on Tuesday, but no action will be taken.
The university in March acknowledged an ongoing investigation into a report of sexual misconduct after the online news site NonDoc first reported the allegations by former OU student and Boren teaching aide Jess Eddy.
Eddy told The Associated Press that he first denied the allegations, but that he decided to speak publicly after “thinking that there might be others like me.”
