EAST LANSING (AP) — The former dean of Michigan State University’s College of Osteopathic Medicine has retired amid criminal charges stemming from the investigation of disgraced sports doctor Larry Nassar.
The university says William Strampel signed an agreement Thursday to retire effective June 30. Officials say Strampel gets basic retiree health care coverage and $175,000 — less money than he would have — but forfeits emeritus status and other benefits typically accorded to retired executives.
Strampel’s departure ends university efforts to revoke his tenure, but officials say it doesn’t affect criminal charges. Three women, including two current medical students, accuse him of sexual harassment, including bawdy talk about sex and nude photos and a groping incident.
Investigators found about two dozen sexually explicit photos and videos on his campus computer and a hidden camera.
