Strampel sentencing Wednesday, Klages also in court

By  | 

LANSING, MI (WILX) -- The former dean of Michigan State University's College of Osteopathic Medicine is scheduled to be sentenced in court Wednesday.

A jury convicted William Strampel of misconduct in office and neglect of duty back in July.

Jurors acquitted him of a more serious charge of second-degree criminal sexual conduct.

Prosecutors said Strampel abused his power to take advantage of female students.

Strampel's trial lasted more than a week.

Strampel is not the only former MSU staff member to be in court Wednesday, former MSU Gymnastics Coach Kathie Klages will also be in court.

Klages will be asking a judge to dismiss the case against her. She's charged with lying to police in the Larry Nassar investigation.
