Sexual abuse victims of disgraced gymnastics Dr. Larry Nassar and Michigan State University have reached a settlement in principle in which the university will pay $500 million, attorneys for both sides said in a joint statement on Wednesday.
Under the settlement, $425 million will be paid to the 332 victims represented in current litigation, while the university will set aside another $75 million in a trust fund which could go to future plaintiffs who allege they were abused by Nassar, the attorneys said.
“This historic settlement came about through the bravery of more than 300 women and girls who had the courage to stand up and refuse to be silenced,” plaintiffs’ attorney John Manly said.
“Michigan State is pleased that we have been able to agree in principle on a settlement that is fair to the survivors of Nassar’s crimes,” said Robert Young, special counsel to the university.

The former boss of disgraced gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar now faces another wave of sexual assault accusations, with prosecutors accusing him of harassing female models he hired for educational exams.
A motion filed Wednesday called Dr. William Strampel, the former dean of Michigan State University’s College of Osteopathic Medicine, an “ugly predator who used his office to harm young women,” NBC News reported.
Strampel has previously been accused of sexual misconduct by five women.
The new motion by Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette does not contain new charges against Strampel, but it details new allegations from two unnamed witnesses.
One of them was a student in 2002 hired by Strampel to be an exam model. She participated in 10 sessions in which Strampel did breast, pelvic and anal exams in front of a small group of students. She stopped doing the $100-an-hour job, however, when Strampel told her during a dinner that

Olympic gold medal gymnast McKayla Maroney says Larry Nassar, the disgraced team doctor convicted of sexually assaulting former patients, molested her hundreds of times over a period of five years.
“He said that nobody would understand this and the sacrifice that it takes to get to the Olympics. So you can’t tell people this,” Maroney told NBC’s Dateline in an interview airing Sunday night. It is her first in-depth interview since she revealed last year that she was a victim of Nassar.
“I actually was like, ‘That makes sense. I don’t want to tell anybody about this. I didn’t believe that they would understand,” she said.
Maroney, 22, said Nassar abused her every single time she saw him, beginning with their very first meeting.
Nassar’s victims have said the doctor secured their trust before using supposed medical treatments as an excuse to molest them. Maroney said Nassar won her over by buying

An alleged video of disgraced USA Gymnastics Larry Nassar was found on his former boss’ computer as he was being arrested in connection with his own alleged sexual misconduct. Nassar’s ex-boss and former dean at Michigan State University William Strampel once said he didn’t believe the allegations against Nassar.
According to a police affidavit, obtained by MLive in Michigan, on Strampel’s computer was a video of “Dr. Larry Nassar performing ‘treatment’ on a young female patient.”
Additionally, Strampel is accused of sexual abuse himself. Police accuse him of sexually abusing female medical students. On his computer, police allegedly found “approximately 50 photos of bare vaginas, nude and semi-nude women, sex toys and pornography.”
Strampel was Nassar’s boss and back in 2016 he stated he didn’t believe the allegations against Nassar, the Wall Street Journal reported. He announced a leave of absence for medical reasons in December.
Earlier this year, former USA Gymnastics physician Nassar was

The dad who tried to attack Larry Nassar in court is giving away his defense earning to charity. As CNN reports, the father of three of Nassar’s sexual abuse victims, Randy Margraves, lunged at the former USA Gymnastics doctor last week in open court. An online fundraiser surfaced following the incident to help Margraves with any possible legal expenses that he may have incurred.
He is now donating the money—more than $31,000— to victims of sexual abuse.
Margraves said in a statement, per CNN, that he did not need the money. He will donate the funds to “local charities like Small Talk, RAVE and the Firecracker Foundation.” He said that he is grateful for the outpouring of support following his attack on Nassar. “At the time of the incident, I didn’t know that the great brotherhood had done this, and I was overcome with gratitude when I found out,” Margraves

County Court Judge Rosemarie Aquilina told former USA Gymnastics physician Larry Nassar it was her “honor” and “privilege” to sentence him to 40 to 175 years in prison for sexually abusing countless women.
After announcing her sentencing, the courtroom broke out in applause.
“You do not deserve to walk outside a prison ever again,” Judge Aquilina told him. “I’ve just signed your death warrant.”
Nassar made a brief statement before being handed down his sentence.
“There are no words that can describe the depth and breadth of how sorry I am for what has occurred,” he said. “An acceptable apology to all of you is impossible to write and convey. I will carry your words with me for the rest of my days.”
Judge Aquilina told Nassar that he knew he had a problem and didn’t seek treatment.
“You could have gone anywhere in the world to be treated. Any resort, any doctor. In Europe they have hidden places for

The ex-USA Gymnastics doctor has been sentenced to 60 years for child porn. As CNN shares, 54-year-old Larry Nassar was sentenced today to time in federal prison for child pornography charges. Authorities say that he was found in possession of over 37,000 video and images of child pornography.
This is not the worst of Nassar’s crimes. The former gymnastics doctor also admitted to sexually abusing underage girls. In November, Nassar pled guilty to seven counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct as well as using his position of authoritiy to abuse underage girls. Three of his victims were reportedly under 13.
More than 140 women and girls have accused Nassar of sexual abuse. Last month, Gold medalist Aly Raisman accused Nassar of sexual abuse as did Gabby Douglas. Their teammate, McKayla Maroney, accused him in October of molesting her for years.
In a statement to “60 Minutes,” USA Gymnastics say they recently adopted a

A Florida man has blamed the death of his girlfriend and his own infant son on a “demon” he was possessed by.
Diamond Shelman and 8-month old Jeremiah Shelman were found dead in a burning apartment this weekend. Police discovered that injuries on the mother weren’t consistent with a fire death.
Larry Bernard Williams, 20, was arrested for the deaths.
Williams allegedly confessed by telling police “the demon that takes him over” is responsible for killing them, WFLA reports.
Police said he stabbed Diamond on Sunday morning before slitting her throat. He spread gasoline around the apartment to set it on fire.
Diamond’s mother said she recently broke up with Williams.
Of Diamond, her mother said, “If you met her, she had the sweetest spirit, nobody would want to hurt her, it would take an animal to do something like this.”
