LANSING, Mich. – Former President of the State University, Michigan, Lou Anna Simon has been responsible for lying down to the police that investigate Larry Nassar's sexual abuse.
Simon, who finished earlier this year over the scandal, arose on Tuesday with two felonies and two misconduct.
She is now the fourth person other than Nassar to face criminal charges associated with serial disorders of young female athletes under the type of treatment. Many other people have lost their jobs or have been prosecuted.
A charging document claims that Simon told the police that she was aware that university sports doctors were under investigation in 2014, but she did not know she was Nassar. The police say she knew he was under investigation.
