Culture of sex assault cover-ups at MSU

Report: Michigan State University Covered Up Numerous Sexual Misconduct Cases, Including The Nassar Scandal

Michigan State Athletic Director Mark Hollis to Retire

Michigan State has come under fire in the wake of a bombshell report about university officials covering up instances of sexual assault and violence, and one of the most prominent Spartans alumni is not exactly going to bat for his school. While Johnson stopped short of defending Izzo, he offered to help him and others who have influence at Michigan State.

If Nassar does make it to the state system, where he's been sentenced to serve 40 to 175 years, he would be kept away from the general population.

University president Lou Anna Simon stepped down Wednesday amid growing calls for her departure. When Nassar alerted Strampel via email in August 2016 that an Indianapolis Star reporter wanted to speak with him about sexual assault allegations, Strampel responded by saying: "I'm on your side".

More than 150 girls and women asserted during Nassar's sentencing hearing this month that Nassar sexually abused them under the guise of medical care in his capacity as an MSU or USA Gymnastics physician over two decades.

Mark Hollis, the university's athletic director since 2008, announced his retirement Friday morning.

The board of trustees - which originally held a vote of confidence to keep President Lou Anna K. Simon before she resigned Wednesday night amid widespread pressure - asked that Schuette appoint an independent special prosecutor because of the potentially political undertones the investigation could take on given his 2018 run for MI governor.

State Attorney General Bill Schuette says his office has launched an investigation into how Michigan State University's handled complaints against former sports doctor and convicted sexual predator Larry Nassar.

Nassar, who is serving an additional 60 years in prison on child pornography charges and awaits sentencing on three other counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct, will be in prison for the rest of his life. "Every incident reported in that article was documented by either police or the Michigan State Title IX office".

The National Collegiate Athletic Association is also investigating Michigan State, and inquiries are planned in Congress and the state Legislature.

The report highlights sexual assault cases involving MSU basketball and football players from 2010 and 2017. "I've always worked with the proper authorities when dealing with the cases of sexual assault".

In December, the MSU Board of Trustees announced its creation of a $10 million fund for victims of Nassar, as a way to show the university's "concern for and commitment to these courageous young women".
