OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — A special prosecutor says former University of Oklahoma President David Boren and former Vice President James "Tripp" Hall III will not be charged for alleged sexual misconduct with students.

Special Prosecutor Pat Ryan said in a news release Tuesday that he has decided not to seek a grand jury indictment of Boren or Hall, who both denied the allegations.

Boren, a former state governor and U.S. senator who retired from OU in 2018, later severed all ties with OU after the allegations became public.

Hall was among dozens of university employees fired by Boren's successor, James Gallogly, as part of a cost-cutting move in 2018.
