  Former Michigan State president to testify before Senate on abuse scandal Former Michigan State University President Lou Anna Simon and former USA Gymnastics President Steve Perry will testify at a June 5 U.S. Senate Commerce subcommittee hearing on efforts to protect athletes from abuse, the committee said Tuesday.

Earlier this month, hundreds of women sexually abused by Nassar tentatively agreed to a $500 million settlement with the school.

U.S. District Judge Edmund Sargus on Tuesday in Columbus rescheduled Aaron Daniels' sentencing from Thursday to July 6.
