William Strampel, former Michigan State College of Osteopathic Medicine dean and boss of Larry Nassar while the disgraced doctor was at the university, is reportedly now in custody.
The Lansing State Journal’s Matt Mencarini reported Monday that Strampel is in the Ingham County Jail, with an attorney general update on the investigation into the university scheduled for Tuesday.
Strampel retained a professorship, but removed himself as dean in December before interim president John Engler put the wheels in motion to fire him.
Nassar was sentenced in February to up to 125 years in prison for the sexual abuse of a number of young female gymnasts. He was also sentenced to 60 years in federal prison for child pornography charges.
Special prosecutor William Forsyth, who is part of the investigation into the university, will be holding a news conference Tuesday. Among the information he requested from Strampel were his computer, work cell phone and work calendars, according to the Journal.
Strampel also did not gain compliance from Nassar on protocols the two put in place after a Title IX investigation that cleared the latter of sexual assault in 2014.
