Schuette promises 'full and complete investigation' into MSU sexual misconduct issues

Schuette promises 'full and complete investigation' into MSU sexual misconduct issues

Calley says the university needs to make a "dramatic shift in policies". Calley is Schuette's main rival for the Republican nomination for governor and is a close ally of current governor Rick Snyder.

State Attorney General Bill Schuette says his office has launched an investigation into how Michigan State University's handled complaints against former sports doctor and convicted sexual predator Larry Nassar. "This investigation will be independent, thorough, transparent and prompt".

He said Saturday that he didn't need advice about how to handle the investigation from the board due to their conduct during the situation. "They should be the last ones providing advice given their conduct throughout this entire episode".

Michigan attorney general Bill Schuette and special prosecutor William Forsyth requested a first round of records from Michigan State for their Larry Nassar investigation this weekend, including personnel files for several employees who worked with Nassar and physical evidence from former dean William Strampel. Parents of global students - many of whom pay full-freight tuition - probably have less emotional attachment to Michigan State University than native Michiganders and could be more sensitive to unflattering reports about the university.

Also on Friday, Michigan State University athletic director Mark Hollis announced that he was retiring. For mom, the recent resignation of university President Lou Anna Simon showed the university is serious about addressing any underlying problems that the Nassar case brought to light. Among them were that Nassar's failure to explain the "invasive, sensitive procedures" he was using and to obtain prior consent from patients "is opening the practice up to liability and is exposing patients to unnecessary trauma based on the possibility of perceived inappropriate sexual misconduct". More than 150 gymnasts said in court they were abused by Nassar over the span of two decades.

A new report on North Korean sanctions like this must be submitted to Congress at this same time for the next five years. In 1948, South Korea declared independence, sparking a North Korean invasion in 1950 and the onset of the Korean War.

Nassar, who is serving an additional 60 years in prison on child pornography charges and awaits sentencing on three other counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct, will be in prison for the rest of his life.

Izzo and Spartans football coach Mark Dantonio both said Friday night that they have no plans to step away from their positions after the ESPN report described a pervasive culture of sexual assault on campus and within their two programs.
