The Michigan State University Dean, who supervised former sports doctor Larry Nassar, was arrested for alleged sexual harassment Monday.

Seventy-year-old former Michigan State University College of Osteopathic Medicine Dean William Stramphel was arrested Monday for alleged sexual harassment following a police search warrant. Stramphel allegedly stored roughly 50 non-medical images of nude and semi-nude MSU female students. He also used his university computer to store pornographic videos and another of Nassar doing his fake medical practices. The former dean also faces allegations of inappropriately touching one female student, WILX10 reported.

Police first uncovered the innapropriate images and videos on Stramphel’s office computer in an investigation entailing MSU’s role in allegedly covering up Nassar’s sexual misconduct, which Michigan special prosecutor William Forsyth led, starting in February 2018, CNN reported.

Stramphel was charged with one count of a felony in the office. He was also slapped with fourth-degree sexual criminal conduct during his time as dean from 2002 to 2018. The former dean is also facing two counts of failing to properly monitor Nassar’s behavior. Stramphel confessed to an FBI agent and detective in 2017 that he never followed up on the 2014 order to have a third medical staffer around to monitor Nassar’s treatments that involved “anything close to a sensitive area.” Stramphel also never followed up with Nassar on the order to detail any of his skin-to-skin practices.

The former dean stepped down from his position in December 2017 for medical reasons, the Daily Mail added.
