Whitmer Wants Independent State Investigation of MSU

Dr. Larry Nassar seen in court last month was sentenced to 60 years on child porn charges by a federal judge in Grand Rapids Mich. on Thursday

Michigan State attorneys: No written report on Larry Nassar investigation

Patrick Fitzgerald made the disclosure in a letter to state Attorney General Bill Schuette, who had asked for the university's internal report on Dr. Larry Nassar. Separately, he has pleaded guilty to molesting gymnasts with his hands in the Lansing, Michigan, area under the guise of treatment.

A judge has sentenced a MI sports doctor to 60 years in federal prison for child pornography crimes, one of three criminal cases against a man who also admits assaulting female gymnasts. But he said Michigan State is "ready, willing and able to cooperate" with any inquiry by state or federal authorities.

The charges relate to Nassar's time a faculty member at Michigan State University, from 1997 to 2016, when, the university said, he was sacked after the allegations surfaced. More than 140 have joined civil lawsuits that, in addition to Nassar, list Michigan State, USA Gymnastics and high-ranking officials from both institutions as defendants. They say the people in a position to stop him told the girls that they were misunderstanding medical procedures and suggested they shouldn't talk to others about their concerns.

Fitzgerald said at Penn State, it appears high-ranking officials knew about the sexual abuse by Sandusky and didn't report the abuse.

Nassar is now scheduled to be sentenced for his state crimes starting January 12.

A Michigan State spokesman said last month that the university's police department and the FBI conducted a joint investigation earlier this year to determine whether any university employee other than Nassar engaged in criminal conduct.

Federal prosecutors had sought the 60-year sentence, which is the maximum under sentencing guidelines.

"If there's no report, there's no investigation", Manly said Friday. He claimed that the attorneys for the women suing Michigan State have attempted to force them to share information by trying their case in the press.

"I was expecting to feel a little bit of comfort after these sentences knowing that justice is being done", Smith said.
