Arrest warrants have been issued for seven people in connection with the investigation into fraud in the MSU Healing Assistance Fund.

The initial fund was established for survivors of the Larry Nassar sexual abuses at Michigan State University.

Today the Ingham County Prosecutor’s Office issued the warrants for 22 felony counts for claims of over $527,000 in fraudulent payments from the fund.

The payments were to be used to support the resources needed for survivors’ recovery and healing, specifically counseling and mental health services that are not covered by insurance.

The Michigan State University Police Department has been investigating alleged fraudulent reimbursements since fall of 2018.

A second Healing Assistance Fund has been established for survivors in the wake of the fraud investigation.
