Statement on Nassar's Ingham County sentencing, Jan. 24, 2018

Larry Nassar’s sentencing today on state criminal sexual conduct charges represents another important step toward justice. Over the past several days, many here at MSU, including President Simon and trustees, listened to the brave women who came forward to tell their stories at Nassar’s sentencing hearing.

Nassar’s behavior was horrific and repugnant, and it is deeply disturbing to know that his crimes were often committed on campus. He will rightfully spend the rest of his life in prison.

We are committed to continue supporting those in our community affected by these terrible crimes. The Healing Assistance Fund was created to help survivors access any counseling and mental health services they may need. The thoughts and prayers of the entire MSU community are with these women.

--Jason Cody, MSU spokesperson
