OSU Reviewing Donations From Epstein

Ohio State University is reviewing donations it received from financier Jeffrey Epstein, who's now facing sex trafficking charges involving underage girls. 

The university says Epstein's private foundation anonymously donated 2.5 million in 2007. The money along with a donation from former trustee Les Wexner's charitable fund made up a 5 million dollar pledge toward the Woody Hayes Athletic Center. Epstein was a long-time financial advisor for Wexner, who says he was not aware of Epstein's activities. Ohio State also says it will take additional action as appropriate.
