Michigan State President Stepping Down Due To Larry Nassar Case

Michigan State President Stepping Down Due To Larry Nassar Case

In the wake of ex-USA Gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar's sentence of up to 175 years from Judge Rosemarie Aquilina on January 24 following the testimony of almost 160 accusers, Michigan State University president Lou Anna K. Simon has stepped down.

In a response to the letter, USA Gymnastics said it "completely embraces the requirements".

The Buffalo native is also an alumna of Michigan State University and former patient of Larry Nassar. The board's top three members stepped down this week.

Judge Rosemarie Aquilina speaks at a sentencing hearing for Larry Nassar for molesting about 100 girls while he was a physician for USA Gymnastics and Michigan State University, where he had his sports-medicine practice, January 16, 2018 in Lansing, Michigan. At the time of the trial, 156 women had come forward to make claims against the disgraced doctor.

She also opened up about how she's dealing with the judge's decision to sentence Nassar to up to 175 years in prison.

Noah is far from the first to question the consequences for people who did sufficiently act on complaints about Nassar.

"I'm such a proud Spartan, I had a Michigan State shirt on at practice".

Larry Nassar's controversial case may be over, but there's still lots of "work to be done". "Whether they knew or didn't know, that's a big problem and we need to investigate how this happened".

MSU's Lou Anna Simon resigns over Nassar scandal
He later walked that back, Skubick said, to say they needed to be evaluated on how they handle decisions after Simon's leaving. Simon and her administration had successfully tamped down indignation over MSU's role in the Larry Nassar sex-abuse scandal.

Raisman also described how she would be examined - and abused - by Nassar on her bed in her hotel room when they were on the road for competitions.

"We are very sorry that any athlete has been hurt by the despicable crimes Larry Nassar committed", one statement read.

Nassar "did not have a medical license in Texas, which is where we went to the ranch and trained", Raisman said on the show. It can not ever happen again - there or anywhere.

USAG's statement said the guidelines in the Olympic committee's letter "will help us enhance our ability to build a culture of empowerment throughout the organization, with an increased focus on athlete safety and well-being".

"That means that in the United States - I am not talking about any other country - but in the United States, 400,000 babies born in the USA will become victims of child sexual abuse".

"I love this place", she said.

"I'm not running away from anything", Hollis said, promising to cooperate with investigations into the matter. "The media convinced them that everything I did was wrong and bad".
