Attorney: No one at MSU knew about Nassar until media reports

And because of that, there's no physical report available for Schuette, who requested a copy of the findings earlier this week, to review, Patrick Fitzgerald, a Chicago-based attorney who's representing the university and who conducted the review, told Schuette in a letter. But he said Michigan State is "ready, willing and able to cooperate" with any inquiry by state or federal authorities. Indeed, the university is a defendant in many cases filed by more than 100 women and girls who say they were assaulted by the doctor. He's also pleaded guilty to several sexual misconduct charges in Ingham and Eaton counties, but has not yet been sentenced for those offenses.

A judge has sentenced a MI sports doctor to 60 years in federal prison for child pornography crimes, one of three criminal cases against a man who also admits assaulting female gymnasts. He has also been named in multiple civil lawsuits. Last February, Schuette said his focus was strictly on Nassar when the former physician was charged with his state crimes.

"It is clear that Nassar fooled everyone around him - patients, friends, colleagues and fellow doctors at MSU", said Fitzgerald, who built a crime-busting reputation as USA attorney in Chicago. The only other party that has investigated the potential culpability of those who allegedly enabled Nassar to date is Fitzgerald's law firm.

Texans QB Tom Savage returned to game against 49ers after brutal hit
DeAndre Hopkins had 149 yards receiving and two touchdowns, but lost a fumble in the fourth quarter with the Texans down by 7. Savage could be seen arguing with the team official before he was escorted to the locker room by the team's trainer.

"We believe the evidence will show that no MSU official believed that Nassar committed sexual abuse prior to newspaper reports in the late summer 2016", he said.

"At this time, we are reviewing the letter we received from Mr. Fitzgerald to evaluate our next step", said Schuette's press secretary, Andrea Bitely is Schuette's press secretary. "The Attorney General brought charges a year ago and there still hasn't been an independent investigation". Federal Judge Janet Neff followed the government's recommended sentence Thursday. Fitzgerald said they were hired to see if anyone assisted or concealed Nassar conduct. "And much as there is no 'investigative report, ' there is no document that constitutes 'Fitzgerald findings, '" he said.

"I was expecting to feel a little bit of comfort after these sentences knowing that justice is being done", Smith said. "It's not comforting that one person is in jail while many people who enable what happened are sitting untouched, and [I] feel that they're laughing at us".
