Larry Nassar's multiple sexual assault convictions are now beginning to effect those who had professional ties with the disgraced sports medicine doctor.
Dr. Strampel's arrest was applauded on Monday by John C. Manly, a lawyer who represents more than 150 women who say they were abused by Dr. Nassar. The charges were filed early Tuesday morning in a district court, and they include fourth-degree criminal sexual conduct using force or coercion, as well as two misdemeanour counts of willful neglect of duty by a public officer.
Special prosecutor William Forsyth, who is part of the investigation into the university, will be holding a press conference on Tuesday.
Strampel was Michigan State's dean of osteopathic medical school when he was Nassar's superior.
The maximum penalty for the charges ranges from one year in jail to five years in prison.
Strampel's attorney declined to comment.
Nassar was sacked in 2016 for violating that rule.
William Strampel, 70, who led Michigan State's medical school from 2002 until late a year ago, was arrested Monday evening and taken to jail on four charges - one felony and three misdemeanors - stemming from the Michigan Attorney General's Office's ongoing investigation of the role others at the school may have played in crimes committed by Nassar, the former Michigan State and USA Gymnastics physician accused by more than 250 girls and women of sexual abuse.
Attorney Jamie White, who represents 34 victims of Nassar in civil litigation, released a statement today, which said in part, "Although the allegations against Dr. Strampel are extremely troubling, I can not say they are surprising given the atrocities that the women I represent have endured at the hands of Larry Nassar".
He stepped down from his post in December because of medical reasons, but has remained on staff.
Strampel told a campus detective and FBI agent in 2017 that he had never followed up to see if Nassar was following the order because Nassar had been "exonerated" in an investigation of a patient's complaint and the imposed guidelines were "health care 101".
In February, Michigan State announced it was firing Strampel, who had been on medical leave.
In a previous statement, Engler has said that Strampel did not act with the level of professionalism we expect from individuals who hold senior leadership positions, particularly in a position that involves student and patient safety.
After Ms Thomashow's complaint against Nassar in 2014, Mr Strampel allegedly restored the doctor's position at the school, during which time he was able to molest 20 more women before coming to trial. Among the women who have accused Nassar of sexual assault are Olympic gold medalists Aly Raisman, Simone Biles, McKayla Maroney and Gabby Douglas.
