The conviction Friday of a former Michigan State University gymnastics coach of lying to police when she denied that two teen athletes told her of sexual abuse by disgraced former sports doctor Larry Nassar in 1997 is the latest fallout from the scandal that has rocked the school.

A Fort Wayne priest is on administrative leave after a sexual abuse allegation was made against him. According to a statement from the Diocese of Fort Wayne-South Bend, Fr. Joseph Gaughan  was accused of sexually abusing a minor while serving at St. Anthony de Padua parish in South Bend over 20 years ago.
