Band director said to protect students

COLUMBUS, OHIO- A female witness in the investigation of the Ohio State band director fired for a climate of sexual harassment says its absurd to suggest he was dismissive of complaints.

Jonathan Waters was fired in June after an investigation suggested he knew about a "sexualized culture" among students and didn't stop it.

The witness says in a letter to the school president she was sexually assaulted in high school and that Waters protected her by calling in stadium security when the accused relatives attended a band rehearsal.

She claims a meeting with Waters was misconstrued in the investigative report.
