OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Former University of Oklahoma President David Boren and Vice President James “Tripp” Hall III will not be charged for alleged sexual misconduct with students, a special prosecutor investigating the allegations said Tuesday.

“As the appointed acting AG for this investigation, I have made the decision, after considering all relevant facts and circumstances, to not seek a Grand Jury criminal indictment relative to Boren’s and Hall’s alleged wrongful conduct while they were employed by the University of Oklahoma,” special prosecutor Pat Ryan said in a brief statement.

“The OSBI investigation of David Boren and Tripp Hall has concluded,” Ryan said.

One man alleged sexual misconduct by Boren, a former Oklahoma governor and U.S senator, and that man and two others made similar allegations against Hall.

Boren and Hall both denied the claims.

Boren retired in 2018 and later severed all ties with the university after the allegations became public and Hall was among dozens of university employees fired by Boren’s successor, James Gallogly, as part of a cost-cutting move on his first day on the job in 2018.
