Judge OKs new charge against former Michigan State dean

LANSING, Mich. (AP) — A judge says prosecutors can pursue a second felony charge against a former medical school dean who had oversight of Larry Nassar at Michigan State University.

Judge Joyce Draganchuk on Friday approved the request to add a charge of second-degree criminal sexual conduct. She also ordered MSU to release documents that William Strampel wants for his defense.

Strampel is accused of sexually harassing female students when he was dean of the osteopathic medical school.

The new charge is related to an allegation that Strampel grabbed a woman's buttocks at a social event. He's also charged with misconduct in office. Trial is scheduled for May 28.

Strampel had oversight of Nassar, a Michigan State doctor who was convicted of child pornography crimes and sexual assault. Critics say Strampel failed to ensure that Nassar was following patient restrictions that were ordered in 2014.
