A jury is expected to begin deliberations Tuesday in the trial of former Michigan State University Dean, William Strampel.

Strampel is accused of two felonies and two misdemeanors.

       Strampel was the dean of the College of Osteopathic Medicine at M-S-U. Prosecutors say he used his position as dean to try to get sexual favors from female students. They also say Strampel did not properly oversee Larry Nassar after an internal investigation.Nassar is the former M-S-U sports doctor who sexually assaulted his patients for years.

The trial has gone on for a little more than a week. Testimony wrapped up after Strampel’s attorney John Dakmak called two witnesses – both former M-S-U employees. Attorneys for both sides will give their closing arguments before the jury is given instructions and allowed to start deliberating.
