William Strampel

LANSING, MI (MPRN)--   One year. That’s how long the former dean of Michigan State University’s College of Osteopathic Medicine was sentenced to spend in jail. 

William Strampel was sentenced Wednesday for two misdemeanors and one felony. He was convicted of a felony for using his position as dean to try to get sexual favors from female students.

During sentencing, Strampel’s attorney argued that Strampel has multiple women on his side – and his good characteristics should not be ignored.
