AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — A Texas lawmaker wants the state's top law enforcement agency to look into Baylor's sexual assault scandal and whether school officials worked to cover up crimes.

Democratic Rep. Roland Gutierrez of San Antonio called on the Texas Rangers on Monday to probe the Waco school.

Baylor has acknowledged that 17 women reported being raped by 19 football players since 2011.

Lawsuits put the number of alleged sexual assaults at more than 50 over four years.
