A former Michigan State University gymnastics coach has been sentenced to 90 days in jail for lying to police during sexual abuse investigations into former university and Team USA doctor Larry Nassar.

USA TODAY reported Tuesday that Kathie Klages, who was convicted in February, was sentenced this week to 90 days in jail and 18 months probation. The 65-year-old Klages, who faced up to four years in prison, had stood by Nassar, who was sentenced to 60 years in 2017 after pleading guilty to child pornography charges and sentenced to 175 years in 2018 after pleading guilty to seven counts of sexual assault of minors.
