Eaton County Circuit Court Judge John Maurer ordered the charges dismissed Wednesday Wochit
LANSING, Mich. – A judge Wednesday against former Michigan State University President Lou Anna Simon arising from the Larry Nassar sexual assault scandal.
Simon was charged with lying to police about her knowledge of a 2014 sexual assault complaint against Nassar, a former MSU sports medicine doctor who sexually abused young women and girls for decades under the guise of medical treatment.
But Eaton County Judge John Maurer dismissed the case.
Maurer’s ruling came five days after Simon’s attorneys and state prosecutors argued in court over a motion to dismiss.
