Nassar Receives Third and Final Prison Sentence

Ex-USA Gymnastics doctor gets up to 125 more years in prison for abuse

Ex-USA Gymnastics doctor gets up to 125 more years in prison for abuse

A Michigan judge delivered a 40- to 125-year sentence to disgraced former Michigan State University and Olympic gymnastics physician Larry Nassar on Monday, bringing the criminal proceedings against the convicted child molester to a conclusion.

Larry Nassar listens as lead prosecutor Angela Povilaitis makes her closing statements Monday the third and final day of sentencing in Eaton County Court in Charlotte, Mich., where Nassar will be sentenced on three counts of sexual assault.

A new report says that even after the FBI opened an official investigation on USA Gymnastics Doctor Larry Nassar's then-alleged abuse, the doctor was able to continue his reign of terror by assaulting at least 40 more women until he was taken into custody.

The sheriff's office in Eaton County, Michigan, where John Geddert owns a training facility, said there is an open criminal investigation against the high-profile coach.

Since last month, more than 200 women spoke over nine days in two county court rooms about the impact the sexual abuse inflicted by Nassar has had on their lives.

In December, a federal judge handed him a 60-year sentence on child pornography possession.

And in the same breath, he attacked former Karnataka chief minister and BJP leader BS Yeddyurappa citing his arrest in the past.

Rachael Denhollander, the first victim to speak out against Nassar, also gave a statement last week, and was in court Monday as he was sentenced, USA Today reported. "I understand and acknowledge that it pales in comparison to the pain, trauma and emotions that you all are feeling".

The United States Olympic Committee has resisted calls from two USA senators for its chief executive to resign and has commissioned an independent investigation by an global law firm to assess any blame Olympic organizations deserve for Nassar's abuse.

Judge Janice Cunningham sentenced Nassar yesterday to between 40 and 125 years in prison. The 40 to 125 years handed down by Judge Cunningham adds to decades of confinement already imposed, meaning he will nearly certainly die in prison.

She said Nassar was believed by authorities for years and "each time he got away, he was empowered to continue and flawless his abuse".

Gina Nichols, mother of gymnast Maggie Nichols, said she was not contacted by the FBI for almost a year after the information she provided sparked the federal inquiry. America's most accomplished gymnasts have said Nassar sexually abused them, including 2016 gold medalists Aly Raisman, Simone Biles, and Gabby Douglas. She asked anyone who enabled Nassar to prey on young women for as long as he did to come forward and explain how that happened. His final sentence comes after he pleaded guilty to penetrating young athletes with ungloved hands when they sought treatment for injuries at Twistars, a gymnastics club that was run by a 2012 U.S. Olympic coach. Larissa Boyce, a former youth gymnast, says she told Michigan State coach Kathie Klages in 1997 that Nassar had touched her inappropriately. Seven of those counts came from crimes in Ingham County, where Michigan State and Nassar's former clinic are located.

Dressed in an orange jail jumpsuit, Nassar told the court before his sentencing that it was "impossible to convey the depth and breadth of how sorry I am to each and every one involved".
