SAN JOSE, Calif. – The sexual abuse allegations against San Jose State University’s former sports medicine director are more severe and wide-ranging than has been publicly known, court filings in the criminal case headed to trial reveal. 

Federal prosecutors charged Scott Shaw in March 2022 with violating the civil rights of four female athletes at the California college by sexually assaulting them during physical therapy sessions from 2017 to 2020.

Those four women – and at least two dozen others spanning more than a decade – said Shaw touched their breasts, buttocks and pelvic regions, often beneath their undergarments, when they went to him seeking treatment for other areas of their bodies. A judge overseeing the criminal case against Shaw will decide how many of them she will allow to testify against him at his trial.
