'Thank you': Olympic gymnast Alexandra Raisman reacts to Larry Nassar sentencing

"We need to create a culture at Michigan State where survivors are listened to and believed", Hertel said.

Michigan State gymnastics coach Kathie Klages resigned previous year after she was suspended for defending Nassar.

As such, Simon has lost credibility and the confidence of many MSU stakeholders.

Thursday, Jan. 18: Nassar victim Lindsey Lemke, a former MSU gymnast, gets applause for a fiery denunciation of MSU, describing how then-gymnast coach Kathie Klages continued to defend Nassar even after he was sacked.

Nassar worked at Michigan State and USA Gymnastics, which trains Olympians.

Simon, who earned her doctorate at Michigan State in 1974, was promoted to school president in 2005.

The confluence this week of the heartbreaking testimony of 101 of Nassar's victims and a detailed report from The Detroit News blowing holes in MSU's claims of total ignorance of the doctor's wrongdoing raises the outrage level to a point that can no longer be ignored. And while the student newspaper has called forcefully for her resignation, powerful voices have insulted Nassar's victims by digging in on her side. He did respond with a public statement and released the NCAA letter of inquiry.

Lou Anna Simon had been facing pressure to step down. "As president, it is only natural that I am the focus of this anger", Simon continued.

Judge Rosemarie Aquilina will sentence Nassar on Wednesday after hearing from a few more accusers. How many young women might have been spared had Simon suspended Nassar pending the outcome of the investigation?

They made riveting statements while confronting Nassar in a Lansing, Michigan, courtroom.

State acting responsibly on marijuana
It also immunizes bank officers and employees from prosecution for performing transactions with pot retailers or cultivators. The state is also exploring allowing use in social club settings.

One of the first athletes to publicly accuse Nassar of sexual assault was the last victim to offer a statement at the hearing.

"Victims were silenced, intimidated, told they were receiving medical treatment, and at times sent back to be further abused".

He did. She replied with, "Thank you".

Lou Anna Simon announced on Wednesday that she's resigning from her position as president of Michigan State University, a direct result of the ongoing Larry Nassar sexual abuse scandal.

Joel Ferguson tells East Lansing, Michigan, radio station WVFN it "will not happen".

The doctor, Lawrence Nassar, who was the physician for two Michigan State women's varsity teams and for the U.S. gymnastics squad, was sentenced on Wednesday for sexually abusing seven girls.

Some victims say they reported Nassar to Kathie Klages, who ran camps for teen gymnasts and was Michigan State women's gymnastics coach until last February. A former prosecutor hired by Michigan State said there's no evidence that campus officials knew what Nassar was doing.

"[Michigan State University's] response has compounded my pain", Nicole Reeb, a former athlete, said in court.

James Finkelstein, a professor emeritus at the Schar School of Policy and Government at George Mason University and the leading researcher of presidential pay, pointed out in an email to the Free Press that Simon would be paid "more than twice the amount of the most highly paid faculty member in the College of Education".

Answering that question starts with President Simon.
