Ex-MSU coach will go to trial as fallout of Nassar scandal continues

Sep 28, 2018

LANSING, MI (MPRN)--   An ex-Michigan State University coach’s criminal case continues. 

Kathie Klages

A judge determined Thursday there is enough evidence against Kathie Klages to go to trial for a misdemeanor and felony charge.

Two women testified in court. They say when they were teens they told Klages that Larry Nassar sexually assaulted them during medical treatment. Nassar is the former MSU sports doctor who sexually assaulted his patients for years.

Larissa Boyce is one of the women. She says Klages told her she must be mistaken.

“I felt humiliated. I felt embarrassed. I felt like I was in trouble and dirty.”

Prosecutors say Klages lied and told law enforcement she did not recall Boyce or other gymnasts telling her about Nassar.

Klages’s attorney says Klages is innocent and they will fight it out at trial.
