Attorney General Bill Schuette has filed an administrative complaint against William Strampel, the former dean of Michigan State University's College of Osteopathic Medicine and Larry Nassar's former boss.

The complaint was filed on behalf of the Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs.

“The alleged license violations are serious and must be treated as such,” Schuette said. “I encourage a thorough and complete review of all evidence by the Board of Osteopathic Medicine as they determine the future of Strampel’s medical license.”

The complaint alleges that Strampel violated the Public Health Code while serving as dean. The violations stem from Strampel's alleged actions toward female students and failure to appropriately supervise Nassar, who was sentenced to prison for serial sexual abuse.

Specifically, the complaint alleges the following:

  • Strampel made inappropriate sexual-in-nature comments to female students.
  • Strampel’s work computer contained approximately 50 photos of nude, or partially nude women, sex toys and pornography. Many photos appeared to be of female MSU students and appeared to be taken by the women in the photos.
  • Strampel failed to enforce protocols intended to protect female patients following allegations against Nassar at the MSU Sports Medicine Clinic.

Strampel was arrested in March and is facing charges of criminal sexual conduct, willful neglect of duties and common law offenses.
