Former Michigan State and USA Gymnastics team physician sentenced to 175 years

MSU men's basketball coach Tom Izzo addresses the media after Wednesday night's win over Penn State

A former Michigan governor has been named Michigan State University's interim president Wednesday.

Board Chairman Brian Breslin said Engler's depth of executive experience - his years of service to the state of MI and his experience as the CEO of the National Association of Manufactures and president of the Business Roundtable - will benefit MSU enormously. But some of Nassar's victims criticized the choice, saying that the university needs someone more distant from the university's establishment to truly root out the problems at the institution. Forsyth will lead a team that includes top investigators from the state attorney general's office and the State Police. They pledged to those survivors to help change Michigan State to ensure it could never happen again.

The legal reckoning with Larry Nassar's years of sexual abuse isn't over.

Nassar pleaded guilty to seven counts of criminal sexual conduct while sexually abusing young girls under the guise of medical treatment while working for Michigan State University and USA Gymnastics.

While the "Outside the Lines" report does not connect these allegations against both the football and basketball programs with the Nassar case, it does raise questions about how the university handles sexual assault reports as a whole.

Schuette described the team he has assembled to lead the investigation, including a special prosecutor and the Michigan State Police, and said there will be a public report when the investigation is completed.

In return he said lawmakers must support the building of a wall along the United States border with Mexico. The future of the Dreamers led to a three-day shutdown of the USA government last week.

Michigan State has denied there was any cover-up of the abuse and has apologized to all those affected by their failure to stop Nassar.

Trustee Brian Mosallam said there's a culture of sexual misconduct on MSU's campus: "This is a watershed moment for Michigan State University", he said. He has said his investigation will be independent, transparent and prompt.

While this does paint the university in a positive light at first glance, it completely ignores the fact that the names of victims, as well as any other identifying information, are already redacted from Title IX records.

"It makes room for leadership that demands a zero tolerance policy when it comes to reporting instances of sexual assault and provides proper training for all employees and staff as to how allegations must be handled", Hannum told The Associated Press. The university's president and athletic director resigned, and the committee's chief executive called on all USA Gymnastics board members to resign. The board on Friday had appointed its secretary, Bill Beekman, as acting president. She said she wants MSU to show "institutional courage" in handling the issues at hand, to avoid deepening the problem and further victimizing those who have suffered sexual abuse.

"Lord knows there will be many decisions that will need to be made at the school that will upset people", Pero said.

The Michigan attorney general's office said 57 victims are expected to speak out in court about Nassar's abuse, according to Eaton County Court Administrator Beryl Frenger. I think that puts everyone on notice.
