Josh King, Donnie Corley and Demetric Vance on Wednesday each pleaded guilty to a charge of seducing an unmarried woman. King also pleaded to a surveilling charge and admitted he shared videos of the alleged victim on Snapchat.
Amazing, considering that all three of them were facing up to life in prison. Pleading down to a crime that sounds like something people forgot to remove from the books in the 1920s suggests the way-too-cozy relationship between the MSU athletic department and the Ingham County court system is continuing, but if you listen to the victim's lawyer, it's actually worse than that:
Karen Truszkowski, a Lansing-based attorney for the victim, said her client was not interested in speaking publicly about the situation because she wants her identity to remain private. “Part of the reason she doesn’t want to go public at this point is what has happened to the women in the Nassar case,” said Truszkowski, referring to the more than 200 victims in the Larry Nassar sex abuse scandal. “They have been crucified. Not by the media but by members of the Board (of Trustees), etc., and she is not willing to deal with that now,” the lawyer said. “They have been awful to those women … the comments that some of board members have made and the way MSU has treated them.”
"Welcome to MSU! Our leadership is committed to victimizing our students and then slandering them so shamefully that they're better of staying silent afterwards. But it's okay, so long as Dantionio keeps beating Michigan."
