LANSING, Mich. — The Latest on the cases surrounding disgraced former sports doctor Larry Nassar (all times local):

6:40 p.m.

More than 200 Michigan State University faculty members, staff and students have marched on campus to demand the resignation of newly appointed interim President John Engler.

They are also demanding that the school take steps to address shortcomings in the handling of sexual assault cases amid the scandal involving former university sports doctor Larry Nassar.

College of Education associate professor Terah Chambers read a statement saying faculty are "horrified" by MSU's response to the ongoing scandal. She and others delivered copies of their demands to the offices of top administration officials Tuesday.

Calls for Engler's resignation and the resignation of university trustees drew cheers from the crowd outside MSU's administration building.

Engler spokesman John Truscott says Engler began work only on Monday and deserves "the opportunity to implement some of his decisions."

5 p.m.

Michigan State University Interim President John Engler is expressing disappointment after state authorities investigating the school's handling of Larry Nassar executed search warrants on campus as TV cameras were filming.

In a letter to independent special prosecutor William Forsyth released Tuesday, Engler said Forsyth's decision for investigators to visit without warning Friday was "very much at odds" with the school's pledge to cooperate. Forsyth, a retired county prosecutor, was appointed to investigate Michigan State by Attorney General Bill Schuette.

Engler says the presence of camera crews was hopefully inadvertent and not part of "media strategy." He says a law firm assisting the university had been in regular contact until the special prosecutor abruptly canceled a meeting.

Engler says he wants the special prosecutor to find "the full truth." The university, where Nassar worked and molested young athletes, has been accused of ignoring complaints against him for years.

1:50 p.m.

A Michigan sheriff says former U.S. Olympic women's gymnastics coach John Geddert is facing a criminal investigation after complaints were filed in the wake of the sexual abuse cases against Larry Nassar.

The Eaton County Sheriff's Office said Tuesday that people have recently come forward with complaints against Geddert. Sheriff Thomas Reich declined to elaborate because the investigation was ongoing.

Nassar has been sentenced to decades in prison for sexually abusing patients under the guise of medical treatment, including while working as a doctor with Geddert's elite gymnastics club in Eaton County, Michigan.

Some of the young athletes who confronted Nassar in court said Geddert was physically abusive. One alleged Geddert was aware in the late 1990s that Nassar had performed an "inappropriate procedure" on her when she was 16.

Geddert's lawyer couldn't immediately be reached for comment Tuesday by The Associated Press.

Geddert previously was accused in separate incidents of physically assaulting a parent and a gymnast. He wasn't charged.

12:10 a.m.

The worst sex-abuse case in sports history has ended with a third long prison sentence for Larry Nassar.

His victims vow to keep fighting for accountability in the scandal that upended the gymnastics world. Investigations into the disgraced doctor's misconduct will go on long after he's locked up in a federal prison.

The latest sentence of 40 to 125 years was handed down on Monday and was for Nassar's molestation of young athletes at Twistars, an elite Michigan gymnastics club.

The sentence is largely symbolic because Nassar, who pleaded guilty, is already assured of spending the rest of his life behind bars. Before serving his two state terms, he must first serve 60 years in federal prison for child pornography crimes.
