Nassar Related Case Dismissed Against Former MSU Pres.

 

A judge has dismissed criminal charges against former Michigan State University President Lou Anna Simon arising from the Larry Nassar sexual assault scandal. Simon was ordered to trial last year on charges that she lied to police about her knowledge of a sexual misconduct complaint against Nassar. The former campus doctor now is serving decades in prison. But Eaton County Judge John Maurer dismissed the case against Simon Wednesday, saying the evidence wasn’t sufficient. Simon resigned as Michigan State president in January 2018, hours after Nassar was sentenced to prison following days of wrenching testimony from his victims.
