An alleged video of disgraced USA Gymnastics Larry Nassar was found on his former boss' computer as he was being arrested in connection with his own alleged sexual misconduct. Nassar's ex-boss and former dean at Michigan State University William Strampel once said he didn't believe the allegations against Nassar.
According to a police affidavit, obtained by MLive in Michigan, on Strampel’s computer was a video of “Dr. Larry Nassar performing ‘treatment’ on a young female patient.”
Additionally, Strampel is accused of sexual abuse himself. Police accuse him of sexually abusing female medical students. On his computer, police allegedly found “approximately 50 photos of bare vaginas, nude and semi-nude women, sex toys and pornography.”
Strampel was Nassar’s boss and back in 2016 he stated he didn’t believe the allegations against Nassar, the Wall Street Journal reported. He announced a leave of absence for medical reasons in December.
Earlier this year, former USA Gymnastics physician Nassar was sentenced from 40 to 175 years in prison for sexually abusing countless women. He had been accused of sexual abuse by about 140 females.
Six-time Olympic medalist Aly Raisman is one of those women. About 120 victims and family members gave powerful testimony about the impact Nassar’s actions had on their lives during court hearings, days before Nassar’s sentencing. Nassar was previously convicted on child pornography charges, which he received 60 years in prison for.
Strampel, 70, was arraigned Tuesday. It’s unclear if he has a lawyer who can speak on his behalf at this time.
Over 250 girls and women have sued Michigan State and Strampel over the Nassar abuse, according to CBS News.
