Aly Raisman Reacts to Larry Nassar's Sentencing: "He Deserves to Suffer"

"Justice requires more than what I can do on this bench", said Judge Rosemarie Aquilina.

"It is my honor and privilege to sentence you. You have done nothing to control those urges and anywhere you walk, destruction will occur to those most vulnerable", Judge Aquilina said. The powerful hearing ended as the culmination of effort that lasted for years in order to take down the abusive doctor.

A prosecutor called Nassar "possibly the most prolific serial child sex abuser in history" and said competitive gymnastics provided the "perfect place" for his crimes because victims saw him as a "god".

She described the "breadth and ripple" of Nassar's sexual abuse as "nearly infinite". "If you would have only listened to the women that brought complaints and concerns over all these years, this would have saved so many women and children from being abused, and from all the scars this has created". "The university's response to this crisis simply hasn't been good enough, and I hope that changes going forward for the sake of both the victims and the entire Michigan State University community", Leonard said.

This is gymnast Kaylee Lorincz testifying on the final day of Dr. Nassar's sentencing hearing about the complicity of Michigan State University and USA Gymnastics.

"If somebody asked me to be alone with my daughter, in like a closed practice, I wouldn't allow it", said Garner. "I will carry your words with me for all of my days".

Riethman and others thanked Judge Aquilina for opening up the sentencing hearings to anyone who wished to share their experiences - in what turned into a cathartic experience for many survivors. They say the school's leader of 13 years had been tone deaf and needs to be among those held accountable for what happened while Nassar was employed as a sports physician at MSU from 1997 to 2016.

"Our thoughts and prayers are with the Adams County Sheriff's Office and the family and friends of the deputy killed". A tweet from the Adams County Sheriff's Office told people to stay in their homes and to stay away from windows.

Former sports doctor Larry Nassar likely still would be sexually assaulting girls if not for the work of an IN newspaper that helped to expose the abuse, a MI prosecutor said Wednesday.

On Monday, USA Gymnastics, whose former chief executive resigned last March over the Nassar case, announced that three board members had also resigned. In a news conference after sentencing, survivor Kaylee Lorincz called for accountability for the people and institutions that "fed" Nassar his victims.

His accusers said he would use his ungloved hands to penetrate them, often without explanation, while they were on a table seeking help for various injuries.

He sometimes used a sheet or his body to block the view of any parent in the room.

His sentencing follows a week of harrowing testimony from scores of women, including Olympic gold medal gymnasts Aly Raisman and Jordyn Weiber.

In August 2016, a report detailing allegations of sexual abuse committed by USA Gymnastics coaches was published in the Indianapolis Star.

Ng and Courtney Soliwoda have been competing in gymnastics for years. "I understand I was involved with them a little bit as the Director of the Junior Olympic program a long time ago, they just need more work to be done.They need to possibly look at their leadership, their board of directors, things like that". It is clear that Nassar will spend the rest of his life in prison.
