EAST LANSING, Mich. (WILX) Michigan State University has chosen two organizations to handle the $10 million Healing Assistance Fund for the women who were sexually abused by Larry Nassar. Commonwealth Mediation and Conciliation and the Minnesota Coalition Against Sexual Assault will distribute the money. MSU health clinic patients and student athletes who were abused by Nassar can be reimbursed for the cost and other related expenses of counseling and mental health services. The victims' parents are eligible as well. The MSU Board of Trustees approved the fund last month.

Nassar pleaded guilty to 10 counts of 1st Degree Criminal Sexual Conduct in Ingham and Eaton Counties. Sentencing starts January 16 in Ingham County and January 31 in Eaton County. He also pleaded guilty to federal child pornography charges and received a 60-year sentence that won't begin until after he finishes serving at least 25 years in state prison.
