Lt. Gov. says MSU should set up fund for victims

Lt. Gov. says MSU should set up fund for victims

Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette gave an update Saturday at noon about his investigation into how Michigan State University handled the Larry Nassar case.

Schuette assembled a team and selected William Forsyth, independent special prosecutor, to lead the investigation.

"The breadth and ripple of this defendant's abuse and destruction is almost infinite", Assistant Attorney General Angela Povilaitis said in her remarks before the sentencing.

The involvement of the Michigan State Police and Schuette's office comes after many months of calls for an independent investigation into how MSU addressed allegations against former MSU doctor Larry Nassar going back two decades.

The investigation began past year, Schuette's office said, but the scope and makeup of the probe wasn't announced until Saturday, during a week in which Nassar was sentenced to state prison and two top officials stepped down.

ESPN spoke to former Michigan State sexual assault counselor Lauren Allswede who said that Michigan State Athletic Director Mark Hollis was the root cause of failed investigations into sexual assault on the campus. Allswede, we left her position in 2015, claims the school's AD Mark Hollis and sometimes MSU coaches were the ones that handled accusations.

Forsyth said the investigation intends to answers those and other questions.

Calley now says MSU should set aside hundreds of millions of dollars for Nassar's victims, and should stop fighting to dismiss lawsuits.

In fact, Michigan State gymnastics coach Kathie Klages humiliated Larissa Boyce and even threatened her with "serious consequences" if she were to file a complaint that Boyce had against Nassar from when he assaulted her. Boyce is among the first known gymnasts to accuse Nassar of sexual assault.

Unsurprisingly, the group who remained sedentary saw no change in their vascular health. One of the yoga groups exercised in a room heated to 40.5 C, the other at 23 C.

The entire USA Gymnastics (USAG) board has said it will comply with a US Olympic Committee's (USOC) ultimatum to resign over an abuse scandal. Part of the sentencing process included more than 150 victim's impact statements read into the record, several of them high-profile Olympians such as six-time medalist Aly Raisman, 2011 world champion and 2012 Olympic gold medalist Jordyn Wieber and two-time Olympic medalist McKayla Maroney.

Schuette says his office planned the criminal inquiry long before the MSU Board of Trustees requested a review. Geddert said he had "zero knowledge" of Nassar's crimes. "We've been here 11 years", Dantonio said at the time.

One of Nassar's accusers, Kyle Stephens, said Michigan State needs to be "accountable for everything that they've done".

The MSU board announced on Friday that its vice-president, Bill Beekman, would serve as acting president until an interim president and then a permanent president is appointed. Dantonio, just moments ago, had a press conference where he told everyone that he had expressly reported every major issue that had ever taken place with his football program, and that there would be no resignation.

Calley is Attorney General Bill Schuette's main rival for the Republican nomination for MI governor, and is a close ally of current Gov. Rick Snyder.

Under the Michigan Constitution, the governor can remove or suspend public officers for "gross neglect of duty", corruption or "other misfeasance or malfeasance".

U.S. Education Secretary Betsy DeVos confirmed Friday that her agency is also investigating the Nassar scandal.

Nassar is accused of molesting dozens of women and girls for years.
