Former MSU gymnastics coach in court

By  | 

LANSING (WILX) -- Kathie Klages had a status conference in Ingham County Circuit Court Thursday.

Klages is a former Michigan State University gymnastics coach charged with lying to investigators in the investigation of Larry Nassar.

At the hearing the judge set a tentative trial date for July 8th. However, the lawyers expect hearings before that time for possible motions to be filed that could push that date back.

At her preliminary examination in September 2018 Klages claims she knew nothing about the accusations against Larry Nassar until the story went public in August of 2016.

But two survivors say they told Klages long before that time.

Klages' lawyer said the fact that her client doesn't remember being told doesn't mean she is lying.
