Carter also said the statements from Nassar's survivors have shaken many at Michigan State and that it's been a challenging time for many at the university. More than 150 victims spoke out against him in court over the last week. She said Nassar groped, fondled and penetrated her with his hands when she was a 15-year-old gymnast in MI.
Simon began her career at Michigan State after earning her doctorate there four-plus decades ago.
Wednesday, Jan. 17: Tiffany Thomas Lopez, a former MSU softball player, describes how she complained to MSU athletic trainers in 1999 and 2000 about Nassar's intravaginal treatments, to no avail. Any suggestion that the university engaged in a cover-up is "simply false", an MSU statement asserted last week. "While I lost faith in the leadership of MSU, I still have the faith in the students and faculty there, and this is hopefully the first step in getting past this bad tragedy", Hertel told WWJ. And in sentencing Nassar to 40 to 175 years in prison Wednesday, Judge Rosemarie Aquilina called for "a massive investigation as to why there was inaction, why there was silence".
The urgency of action on the part of MSU was driven home in the most poignant way this week, as Nassar's victims stood bravely in a Lansing courtroom and one after another shared their wrenching stories of abuse.

Although Nassar's work with gymnasts received the most attention, the allegations against him spanned more than a dozen sports over 25 years.

Sen. Curtis Hertel Jr., a Democrat from East Lansing, where the campus is located, called Simon's resignation "an important step in moving the university forward". More than 150 women and girls have confronted him in court or had a statement read on their behalf since January 16.
The accusers, many of whom were children, said they trusted Nassar to care for them properly and were in denial about what was happening or were afraid to speak up.
Michigan State officials have denied accusations the school covered up misconduct by school administrators.
Ferguson says there are "so many more things going on" at Michigan State "than just this Nassar thing". Simon has been president since 2005.
Nassar is scheduled to be sentenced next week on more assault convictions in Eaton County, Michigan.
"An acceptable apology for you is impossible", Nassar said in prepared remarks.
Nassar will appear in an Eaton County, Michigan, court on January 31 for another prison sentence.
