Larry Nassar Likely Won't Serve Any Time In Michigan For Sex Assaults

  • Mark Dantonio denies allegations concerning handling of sexual assault complaints

Michigan State Spartans former player Magic Johnson in attendance before the 2015 NCAA Men's Division I Championship semi-final game against the Duke Blue Devils at Lucas Oil Stadium.

Both Izzo and Dantonio have denied any wrongdoing and say they have cooperated with investigations. While Johnson stopped short of defending Izzo, he offered to help him and others who have influence at Michigan State.

Nassar has been sentenced to 40 to 175 years for sexually assaulting young women in his care.

Former Michigan State rower Cate Hannum, who was treated by Nassar and wrote an open letter criticizing Simon's handling of the case nearly a year ago, said Hollis' departure gives her hope for the future of the school's athletic program.

A Title IX investigation conducted by the university cleared Nassar of sexual assault allegations in 2014.

That's on top of two weeks of victim impact statements in sentencing of former university doctor Larry Nassar.

University president Lou Anna Simon resigned last Wednesday amid growing calls for a change in leadership because of how the administration has handled the fallout from Nassar's crimes.

During the news conference, Schuette said Michigan State Police will assist with the investigation and Assistant Attorney General Christina Grossi will serve as project manager.

Michigan's Attorney General announced today a broad investigation into one of the state's flagship universities, Michigan State, to find out "who knew what and when" about any sexual assault claims against Larry Nassar, a former athletic trainer for the university and the USA Gymnastics team's doctor.

In December, a federal judge sentenced Nassar to 60 years in prison for possessing 37,000 images of child pornography.

A Michigan State spokesman did not return a message seeking comment for this story.

"I'm here tonight to say that any accusations of my handling of any complaints of sexual assault individually are completely false", Dantonio said.

In response to allegations in an ESPN report of a pattern of suppression of reports of sexual assault, violence, and gender discrimination by university officials, including the athletics department, Izzo said Friday night, "We will cooperate with any investigation going forward as we have always done". "If we are to believe in real change, USAG (USA Gymnastics) and USOC (US Olympic Committee) need to do the same", Raisman said via Twitter.

Every area of MSU will be investigated and the team plans to meet with every victim of Nassar's abuse.

"Instead of notifying authorities or even my parents, we were interrogated", Boyce said in her statement to the court.
