Judge in Sports Doctor's Abuse Trial Known for Support of Victims' Rights

Judge in Sports Doctor's Abuse Trial Known for Support of Victims' Rights Judge in Sports Doctor's Abuse Trial Known for Support of Victims' Rights

Although Nassar's work with gymnasts received the most attention, the allegations against him spanned more than a dozen sports over 25 years.

Larry Nassar was sentenced to 40 to 175 years in prison on Wednesday after seven days of impact statements from more than 150 girls and women who said he sexually abused them. Nassar will spend the rest of his life in prison.

"Sir, you do not deserve to walk outside of a prison ever again".

Check out portions of Aquilina's comments to Nassar during his sentencing below. "I will carry your words with me for all of my days".

"It was not treatment". The victims who packed the courtroom gasped as they heard passages that included "Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned" and another in which Nassar said the "stories" about him were fabricated. They are tragic, heartbreaking, and personally gut-wrenching.

This came on top of the 60 years he was sentenced to back in December for charges of child pornography. If Denhollander and Maroney prevail in their lawsuits or are able to extract settlements, USA Gymnastics and Michigan State-and their insurance companies-might have to pay tens of millions of dollars in damages to Nassar's victims.

Though Nassar apologized during his statement, Aquilina read sections of a letter he submitted to the court last week in which he maintains that what he did was medical and not sexual in nature.

"You have become a man ruled by selfish and perverted desires", she told Nassar.

It's possible Nassar assaulted several hundred women in a setting where he held every single advantage: he was the doctor, his victims were young and were seeking relief for bad pain and Nassar's assaults, which often involved Nassar digitally penetrating a young woman's vagina and anus, could be explained away as "medical treatment". - Aquilina to Amanda, Cormier, who said she lost her passion for songwriting after Nassar's abuse, per CNN.

"That's my plea", he said.

Judge Aquilina congratulated Denhollander for coming forward and building "an army of survivors".

"I don't have many friends because I speak out ..." His ability to inflict harm was obviously enhanced by the failure of USA Gymnastics (which employed Nassar as national medical coordinator from 1996 to 2004) and Michigan State (which employed Nassar as a professor from 1997 to 2016) to stop him.

"We are here to show you", said the 25-year-old, "there is no white flag to wave when it comes to protecting little girls and their futures".

"As much as it was my honour and privilege to hear the sister survivors, it was my honour and privilege to sentence you".

Parents spoke of the anguish of failing to protect their children from a predator, and women spoke of post-traumatic stress and deep emotional scars.

Raisman, the Olympic gold medallist, confronting Nassar on Friday, echoed the feelings of many athletes.

"You are so sick".

Kaylee Lorincz: "I guess I thought it would feel like I could close this chapter of the book".

After the sentencing, MSU, USAG and USOC released statements condemning Nassar's actions and pledging internal investigations. "I know that we all share the same resolve to do whatever it takes to avert such tragedies here and elsewhere".

Almost a year ago, USA Gymnastics President Steve Penny resigned under pressure from the USOC.

USAG also severed ties with the famed Karolyi Ranch - the Texas training facility once considered a breeding ground of champions, where Nassar reportedly had unfettered access to young girls.

Michigan State President Lou Anna Simon resigned this week following the sentencing of Larry Nassar.

In addition to Simon's statement, the MSU Board of Trustees sent a confirmation saying they accepted her resignation.

In 2014, a patient filed an official university complaint, triggering an investigation, which cleared Nassar of serious wrongdoing.

The body overseeing United States collegiate sports, the NCAA, has opened an investigation of MSU's handling of the case.
