A Michigan judge sentenced Ex-MSU gymnastics coach Kathie Klages to 90 days in jail and 18 months probation for lying to police.

Klages was convicted in February of a felony and a misdemeanor for lying to police during a 2018 investigation into former team doctor Larry Nassar's sexual abuse on MSU's campus.

Klages will get credit for one day served. She said she first heard of Nassar's abuse from a 2016 newspaper report and maintains she does not remember being told about the former sports doctor's actions over 20 years ago.

Larry Nassar was sentenced in 2018 to 40 to 175 years in prison for decades of sexual abuse to hundreds of athletes.
