GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) - A western Michigan superintendent says sexual assault complaints against ex-Major League Baseball player Chad Curtis were handled appropriately by the school district.

The Lakewood Public Schools board directed Superintendent Mike O’Mara to evaluate how the district dealt with the allegations.

According to a report released to MLive.com (https://bit.ly/1izLBpE ) under the Freedom of Information Act, O’Mara concluded administrators followed established handbook policies in investigating each allegation.

O’Mara’s findings are in contrast to claims made in a lawsuit recently filed by three teenagers who say the district took no independent action to investigate the allegations when they surfaced.

Prosecutors say three teenage girls were sexually assaulted in 2012 when Curtis volunteered at a high school as a weight-room strength trainer.

He was sentenced in October to seven to 15 years in prison.
