Some news out of Michigan


Ex-MSU President Lou Anna K. Simon was charged Tuesday with lying to police as part of an ongoing investigation into MSU's handling of Larry Nassar.

Simon is charged in Eaton County District Court with two counts of lying to a peace officer in a violent crime investigation, a four-year felony, and two counts of lying to a peace officer in a four year or more crime investigation, a high-court misdemeanor with a maximum of two years, Eaton County Trial Courts Administrator Beryl Frenger confirmed.

Simon is the third person — after former dean of the College of Osteopathic Medicine William Strampel and former MSU gymnastics coach Kathie Klages — to be charged by the Michigan Attorney General's Office in relation to its investigation into MSU’s handling of sexual assault reports involving Nassar. 

All four charges stem from statements made by Simon to Detective Sergeant William Arndt and Lt. Joseph Cavanaugh of the Michigan State Police, and relate to the 2014 Title IX investigation into former MSU athlete Amanda Thomashow’s abuse allegations.
