Special prosecutor, Michigan State Police to investigate MSU

Michigan State Athletic Director Mark Hollis announces his resignation Friday Jan. 26 amid fallout from the Larry Nassar sex-abuse scandal

In turn, Dantonio and Izzo have said they are not stepping down, but Izzo promised to "cooperate with any investigation going forward".

"I am definitely having some second thoughts right now", said James Radick, 29, who meant to transfer to the university from Lansing Community College in 2019.

".any accusations of my handling of any complaints of sexual assault individually are completely false", Dantonio said during the press conference.

Schuette says that taking part in the probe will be some of the top investigators in his office and the state police, and a former prosecutor with 40-plus years of experience.

Nassar pleaded guilty to sexually abusing young women and girls during purported medical procedures. "This will be done right, period", Schuette said. He said his department has already been investigating how the school may have handled any complaints about Nassar and that he has asked the university Board of Trustees to hand over any information they have gathered on the case.

Schuette said the investigation began past year, but the attorney general's office waited to announce the news until every survivor read her victim impact statement in court during sentencing.

The moves came two days after the university president resigned over the school's handling of sexual abuse allegations against convicted former sports doctor Larry Nassar.

In the intervening years, he has suffered several strokes, which have limited his mobility and capacity to communicate. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that Madison was no longer legally eligible to be executed because of his memory loss.

This is not the only fallout from the Nassar case.

Michigan State and USA Gymnastics are named as defendants in a number of civil lawsuits by more than 100 accusers, some of whom accuse the institutions of concealing or improperly dismissing allegations of abuse.

Since his sentencing, MSU's president Lou Anna Simon resigned, MSU Athletic Director Mark Hollis retired, and the entire USA Gymnastics board resigned after being given an ultimatum by the U.S. Olympic Committee. And yet an unredacted version of MSU's report found that Nassar's behavior was "frankly troubling", reports Michigan Radio.

According to a Detroit News investigation, reports of sexual misconduct by Nassar reached at least 14 MSU representatives in the two decades before his arrest, with no fewer than eight women reporting his actions.

Title IX is a federal law that protects people from sexual discrimination in education or other programs receiving federal aid.

Besides Mosallam, others who have demanded resignations and investigations include the National Center on Sexual Exploitation, East Lansing Mayor Mark Meadows, state Rep. Mike Bishop, R-Rochester, and U.S. Sens.

Amanda Thomashow, then 24, filed the first official report in March 2014 after she saw Nassar for treatment for hip pain due to an old cheerleading injury.
