WIKIMEDIA, BRANISLAV ONDRASIKWilliam Strampel, the former dean of Michigan State University’s (MSU) College of Osteopathic Medicine, is in jail after allegedly groping students and keeping pornography on his university computer. The arrest shook out of an investigation at MSU stemming from extensive sexual abuse of athletes perpetrated by Larry Nassar, a sports medicine physician who worked under Strampel, according to the Lansing State Journal.

The Detroit News reports that four women have accused Strampel of misconduct, including groping and suggesting sexual relations in exchange for professional favors.

“There is a reason Larry was able to perpetrate the worst sexual assault scandal in sports and campus history. We are seeing some of these reasons,” Rachael Denhollander, who has accused Nassar of abuse, tells The Detroit News. “We’ve been seeing them for 18 months. MSU continually refuses to acknowledge responsibility for a culture that allowed men like Larry and Strampel to abuse and harass with no consequences.”

Strampel’s attorney denies the accusations, according to the Lansing State Journal.

Among the pornographic videos found on Strampel’s computer was a video of Nassar “performing a ‘treatment’” on a young patient, MLive reports.

Strampel is among those who had been alerted to Nassar’s misbehavior, yet allowed him to practice.

MSU’s President, Lou Anna Simon, resigned from her post following the Nassar scandal earlier this year.
