Michigan AG vows to probe Michigan State

LANSING, Mich.

Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette lashed out at Michigan State University for allowing Larry Nassar to sexually abuse girls and women for years, and he took a shot at the school’s governing body.

“I don’t need advice from the board of trustees,” the aspiring governor said at a packed news conference Saturday about his investigation into the school’s handling of sexual assault claims against the disgraced doctor. “Frankly, they should be the last ones providing advice because of their conduct.”

Schuette said retired prosecutor William Forsyth, who has 40-plus years of experience, will work full time on the independent probe. Forsyth will lead a team that includes top investigators from the state attorney general’s office and the State Police.

The comments from two top Michigan officials came days after Nassar was sentenced to 40 to 175 years in prison for molesting young female athletes and amid growing public pressure to know what school officials knew and how they acted on abuse claims.

More victims likely in Texas assaults

FORNEY, Texas

Authorities say more victims are expected to come forward now that five soccer players at a Dallas-area high school have been charged with sexual assault.

Kaufman County sheriff’s officials were notified last week of allegations against the five players at Forney High School. Court testimony Friday and an arrest warrant affidavit show two players say they were victimized.

Sheriff’s Sgt. Danny Gammon says assaults regularly occurred before or after soccer practice and that investigators believe more victims will come forward.

The Dallas Morning News cites the affidavit in revealing one player told investigators he was held down as others used their fingers or pens to assault him through his soccer shorts.

Four of the players in the case are charged as juveniles and one as an adult.

Shaun White pulls out of X Games

ASPEN, COLO.

Shaun White has withdrawn from the Winter X Games so he can return home to rest for the Olympics.

White caught the flu last week. He was practicing in Aspen this week but notified event organizers he would not compete. He leaves for Pyeongchang next Saturday.

White is an eight-time X Games champion in the halfpipe, but his main focus this season has been earning his third Olympic gold medal. He scored a 100 two weeks ago in Snowmass to win a qualifying event and secure his spot on the U.S. team.
