(BLOOMINGTON) - Indiana University are reviewing 18 sexual misconduct cases.

University officials decided to review the cases after the head of IU's student ethics office Jason Casares was accused of sexual misconduct earlier this month.

Jill Creighton, the assistant director of global community standards at New York University and a board member of the Association for Student Conduct Administration, published a letter February 4 accusing Jason Casares of sexually assaulting her at a conference in December in Texas.

Casares has denied the allegations.

The university and the Fort Worth Police Department are conducting separate investigations.

Creighton also filed a complaint with the Association for Student Conduct Administration, of which Casares is also a member. The association hired an independent investigator, Hutcheson Bowers LLLP, which determined Creighton's claims could not be substantiated.

In the meantime, Provost Lauren Robel requested a review of all sexual misconduct cases from the past academic year that went to hearings where Casares sat on the hearing panel.

Julia Lamber, professor emerita of law at IU's Maurer School of Law, will be doing the reviews. Cases will only be reinvestigated if Lamber concludes it is necessary.
