LANSING, Mich. (AP) - A former U.S. Olympics gymnastics coach with ties to disgraced sports doctor Larry Nassar has died by apparent suicide after being charged with two dozen crimes, including forms of human trafficking.

Michigan's attorney general announced John Geddert's death on Thursday afternoon. It came about three hours after a news conference where Nessel announced that Geddert was charged with crimes, including sexual assault, human trafficking and running a criminal enterprise.

The charges in Eaton County, Michigan, include sexual assault, human trafficking and turning his Lansing-area gym into a criminal enterprise. Geddert has insisted he had no knowledge of Nassar’s sexual assaults, but he's charged with lying to investigators. Nassar is serving decades in prison.
