An Ohio massage therapist lost her license after an investigation uncovered that she was soliciting Ohio State football players to have sex with them. The investigation revealed that the unnamed 41-year-old actually had sex with multiple players.
The woman surrendered her massage therapist license in order to avoid an additional investigation into whether she violated the Ohio Administrative Code, which doesn't allow sexual misconduct with clients.
The investigation arose from a complaint filed on March 14, 2020, with the Medical Board of Ohio alleging that the woman had offered free therapeutic massages to football players as a way of initiating sexual interactions and then demanding payment.
The investigation was delayed until March 4, 2021, for unspecified reasons, and Ohio State was informed in the days following. Ohio State hired the law firm of Barnes & Thornburg as special counsel to conduct an investigation.
The law firm interviewed 117 current and former players and 44 current and former coaches and staff members to determine whether a crime or NCAA violations were committed. Ohio State said that neither occurred.
Of the players, 83 had no knowledge or interaction with the massage therapist. Twenty received non-sexual massages, and five had consensual sex with her. None were minors.
This could have gone in a much different direction for Ohio State. As far as College Football scandals go this is nothing.
It sounds like adults having a consensual sexual experience. I wonder who reported the massage therapist looking for a good time, a player she didn't solicit?
