Former Michigan State University president Lou Anna Simon is headed for more pain.

An Eaton County judge outside of Lansing on Monday ordered her to stand trial on two felony and two misdemeanor charges of lying to investigators about her knowledge of allegations against disgraced former doctor Larry Nassar.

In a written opinion, Eaton County Judge Julie Reincke found that Attorney General Dana Nessel's office had established probable cause that Simon lied to police in an interview last year, reports Beth LeBlanc of The Detroit News:

The decision comes after a preliminary examination that spanned several months as lawyers argued about whether Simon was told at a 2014 meeting with Title IX coordinator Paulette Granberry-Russel that Nassar was the subject of a sexual assault complaint.
