GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) — A Michigan sports doctor who admits he molested gymnasts and kept a staggering collection of child pornography is getting the first of three prison sentences that will likely keep him locked up for decades. Larry Nassar is returning to federal court Thursday in Grand Rapids, Michigan, for his pornography sentence. He’ll be punished in January in state court for sexual assault convictions. Nassar worked at Michigan State University and at USA Gymnastics, which trains Olympians.
DETROIT (AP) — Detroit police say a 3-year-old boy has died after being shot in the face on the city’s East Side and police have identified the boyfriend of the child’s mother as a person of interest and are asking himself to turn himself in to authorities.
LANSING, Mich. (AP) — The Republican-led Legislature is poised to vote on legislation aimed at underfunded municipal retirement plans, after deciding to abandon a contentious proposal for state intervention in communities that don’t fix their liabilities.

DETROIT (AP) — John Conyers’ resignation from the U.S. House amid sexual harassment allegations unlocks the seat he’s held for more than a half-century. That could set off a free-for-all race to replace him, with at least three potential legacy candidates, including two Conyers’ relatives and a son of a prominent former mayor. Gov. Rick Snyder will schedule special primary and general elections to fill the vacancy left by Conyers’ resignation.
