EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Two Michigan State University athletic trainers face administrative complaints alleging they lied to investigators in the Larry Nassar sex abuse case.

State officials say the complaints involve the trainer licenses of Destiny Teachnor-Hauk and Lianna Hadden.

The complaints state students informed both about discomfort during treatments by Nassar. Licensing officials say Teachnor-Hauk and Hadden denied being told that by students.

Teachnor-Hauk and Hadden can file responses to the complaints. Sanctions include fines, license suspension and revocation. Their attorney didn't respond to a message Wednesday from The Associated Press.

A Michigan State spokeswoman says the school is reviewing the complaints.

Hundreds of girls and women said Nassar molested them while he worked for Michigan State and Indiana-based USA Gymnastics. He is in prison for sexually assaulting patients and possessing child pornography.
