TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) - University of Toledo officials are reviewing how it handles investigations of sex crime allegations following a reported rape at the school.
 

 
The Toledo Blade reports that the head of the university's board of trustees called for the review.
 
This comes after a male student who was accused of rape was placed on academic probation, ordered to undergo counseling and fined $25 by the school's Student Conduct Board.
 
The female victim appealed the decision and was told the student would be suspended for a year. The male student then appealed and the original punishment was reinstated.
 
The woman chose not to pursue criminal charges but says she is filing a federal complaint against the university. She no longer attends the University of Toledo.
