Oklahoma school board: Decision on sex assault case pending
BIXBY, Okla. (AP) – An Oklahoma school board says it is “close” to determining what action to take on a criminal case that accuses school administrators of failing to promptly report the sexual assault of a 16-year-old football player by several of his teammates.
The Bixby school board met in executive session for more than seven hours Thursday night and into Friday morning then released a statement saying it will announce the week of Dec. 18 how the September incident will be addressed. The board also pledged to “hold individuals accountable for their actions.”
Records released Wednesday by the high school showed that administrators started their investigation after hearing of “an alleged hazing incident” and waited eight days before contacting police.
The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation is leading the investigation.
