Kathie Klages was found guilty Friday of a felony and a misdemeanor in a courthouse where Larry Nassar was sentenced more than two years ago.
Some courtroom observers would say it’s a gamble to put a defendant on the witness stand and the move did not pay off for former Michigan State University gymnastics coach Kathie Klages.
After just hours of deliberation, a jury today found her guilty of two counts of lying to police officers during the Larry Nassar sexual assault investigation in 2018.
She faces up to four years in prison.
She’s the second person other than Nassar to be found guilty of charges related to his serial molestation of young women and girls under the guise of medical treatment.
