Brianne Randall Gay testified at Larry Nassar’s trial.

The Lansing State Journal reports Wednesday that retired East Lansing police officer Ken Ouellette will conduct the 60-day investigation into the handling a complaint made by Brianne Randall-Gay. She was 17 when she told Meridian Township police Nassar had molested her during an appointment. Police dropped the case after Nassar insisted his actions were part of a legitimate procedure.

 

Nassar worked for Michigan State University and the U.S. women’s Olympic gymnastics team . Hundreds of women and girls say Nassar sexually abused them under the guise of medical treatment.

Township officials have apologized and said police were deceived. Randall-Gay has been helping the township develop a sexual assault prevention program.
