Ohio State is facing a new wave of sexual abuse allegations.

Abuse Scandal Hits Olympic-Affiliated Ohio State Programs

In a new lawsuit, one student-athlete accuses the University's Olympic-affiliated sports programs of turning a blind eye to allegations of sexual abuse and exploitation. The plaintiff, a young female diver who worked with the USA Diving-affiliated Ohio State Diving Club says she was sexually exploited for years by a coach at Ohio State, William Bohonyi.

Competitive Swimmer

But she says Ohio State mishandled the investigation into her abuse, failing to report a trove of child pornography images discovered in Bohonyi's possession. Her allegations aren't limited to Ohio State. In fact, she says the USOC and its national governing bodies, like USA Diving or USA Swimming, routinely ignore or deflect sexual abuse reports to maintain their prestigious position in the international sporting community.

Attorneys Launch Full Investigation

Have you had similar experiences?

While this recent lawsuit is focused on USA Diving's role in the scandal, its young plaintiff says that all Olympic-level sports have become a dangerous breeding ground for sexual predators.

In response to these serious allegations, the experienced sexual abuse attorneys at Abuse Guardian have launched a full investigation into Ohio State's abuse prevention and response capabilities, including a review of individual sexual abuse complaints.

We need your help to complete our investigation. If you or a loved one were abused while participating in Ohio State's Olympic Committee-affiliated swimming club, we want to hear from you. We need to understand how Ohio State has handled sexual abuse allegations in the past. Some sexual abuse survivors may even be eligible to pursue legal action.
