Attention Turns to Michigan State After Nassar Sentenced for Sexual Misconduct

27 January, 2018, 20:21 | Author: Christina Hansen
  • Michigan State did not tell federal investigators about Nassar allegations report

That year, a recent MSU graduate reported that Nassar had assaulted her under the guise of medical treatment.

Hundreds gathered at a campus landmark known as the Rock where they would hear speakers before marching to the university's administration building.

In the wake of his sentencing, MSU President Lou Anna K. Simon resigned on Wednesday, followed by Hollis on Friday. "I have a daughter here, I have a daughter that dreams of coming here, and I want her to feel safe".

'I am shocked and embarrassed at how insensitive some in the MSU family continue to be, ' trustee Mitch Lyons said on Twitter.

"Let me be clear, that in retirement, I will fully cooperate with these and any other investigations", Hollis said in the statement Friday.

One of the signs at the rally said: "They didn't care until we knew". The trustees, he said, want to resume discussions with those who have sued the school to "reach a fair and just conclusion".

Former MSU basketball player and assistant coach Travis Walton is said to have punched a woman at a bar, knocking her unconscious.

Beekman and Byrum declined to comment on whether Simon should have taken more accountability with her parting message.

Student body president Lorenzo Santavicca told the crowd to take it upon themselves to help change the culture. "We have to say that now is a time to reflect", he said.

Mark Hollis, who had been in the job for 10 years, disclosed the move during a meeting with a small group of reporters on campus. "We have to be that example". Congress should investigate the USOC's actions in the Nassar case and create appropriate legislation to better protect the athletes who dream of representing our country in worldwide competition.

"As tragedies are politicized, blame is inevitable", she said in a statement. Survivors like Lindsey Lemke who stood up to Simon in the courtroom and called her out for her inaction throughout the process are who brought attention to the fact that she wasn't acting like a president. "I think this will backfire on them, too".

He said he does not believe that he has ever met Nassar.

Volcano rains ash on Philippines as experts warn of eruption
The new development at Mayon comes after Legazpi residents were allowed to return to their homes on Thursday. Monday's explosion was the most powerful since the volcano began spewing smoke and lava a week ago.

Michigan State had long resisted pleas for an independent investigation, but last week asked state Attorney General Bill Schuette to review the scandal.

Many shoes have dropped since the trail of Nassar wrapped up and his sentence to spending the rest of his life and forever more beyond that in prison concluded. Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would have this much support from my fellow Spartans or have this big of an impact on so many people. "I've been aware generally of probably what you've been aware of with public reports over the years of various misbehaviors as they've occurred".

The fallout included Michigan State professor Sue Carter stepping down as the faculty's athletic representative.

USA Gymnastics and Michigan State did not respond to requests for comment on whether they would resume settlement talks.

"Student leaders have been waving their hands in the air over the years since 2011 when the Office of Civil Rights investigated the institution and said you have a challenge in how you handle sexual assault." said Santavicca.
