EAST LANSING, Mich. — Michigan State football players Donnie Corley, Josh King and Demetric Vance have been charged with criminal sexual conduct by the Ingham County Prosecutor’s Office, according to a Michigan State University Police news release issued Tuesday.
The players have been dismissed from the team.
King has been charged with one count each of first-degree criminal sexual conduct, third-degree criminal sexual conduct and of capturing/distributing an image of an unclothed person, officials said. Corley and Vance have been charged with one count each of third-degree criminal sexual conduct.
The charges relate to an alleged on-campus incident on Jan. 16, and after more than 1,500 hours of investigation and 100 interviews and contacts, charges were authorized Monday. The charges came shortly after the release of the independent Jones Day report into Michigan State’s response to sexual assault allegations.
“The MSU Police Department has zero tolerance for sexual assault,” Michigan State Police Chief Jim Dunlap said in a statement. “I’m confident that this extensive investigation was completed thoroughly, and our detectives worked diligently and exhaustively in providing information to the prosecutor’s office.”
Four Michigan State football players now have been charged with criminal sexual conduct this offseason. Auston Robertson was dismissed from the team in April as a result of charges.
