SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — The University of California says it investigated 113 cases of sexual misconduct at its 10 campuses over a three-year period prior to a series of scandals at UC Berkeley last year.
Details of the cases were released in hundreds of pages of documents because of a public records request made by The Associated Press and other media last April.READ MORE: 'The Father Is A Hero'; Oakland Man, 1-Year-Old Daughter Die In Horrific Arson Fire
