NORMAN, Okla. — A story published this week by details allegations of sexual battery against former University of Oklahoma President David Boren and another administrator. The claims were made by an OU graduate.

Now, both the university and Boren’s attorney are responding to the report by the independent jounalism website, KOCO reports.

Sexual assault, touching and advances – all allegations in a story released by NonDoc. It says a former aide, Jess Eddy, spoke to Norman police about the alleged incidents.

In a statement, Norman police say there is not a report available and the reported incidents happened outside their jurisdiction.

OU says it received a report of alleged sexual misconduct in November 2018 and that the school’s investigation is not complete.

Boren’s attorney responded this morning saying Eddy gave a statement to him saying Boren never acted inappropriately, and he added the university is spending hundreds of thousands of dollars in an attempt to smear Boren’s name.

Boren continues to deny any wrongdoing.

A representative for Eddy issued a statement saying, "The decision to report or go public with information regarding sexual misconduct is the prerogative of any victim of sexual abuse. The credibility of Jess’ story is beyond reproach as confirmed by numerous individuals."
