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

Larry Nassar was the team doctor at USA Gymnastics and at a Michigan State University clinic when he sexually assaulted over 260 women and girls

While this may be true, it is hard to find fault in the anger that so many of those involved feel towards Larry Nassar.

According to the New York Times, the Federal Bureau of Investigations approached Nassar's case "with little evident urgency", and that the inquiry wound up taking over a year.

"The IOC executive board is deeply shocked and saddened by the abuse scandal in the U.S. Gymnastics Federation", Bach said, reading a declaration of the board that included an expression of "its moral support for the victims and applauded the courage of the victims who gave testimony".

Bailiffs tackled the father Friday morning in the courtroom. A few days later, MSU fired him.

Nassar, who lost his physician's license in April, admitted his conduct had no legitimate medical objective and that he did not have the girls' consent. But he was a respected doctor who treated the world's best gymnasts.

"I am asking you to tell these little girls, tell the young women, tell the watching world, that they are worth everything", she told the judge.

The number of alleged victims who have come forward exceeds 250.

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.

Ingham County Circuit Court Judge Rosemarie Aquilina called Nassar "possibly the most prolific serial child sex abuser in history", sentencing him in January to 40-175 years in prison for sexually assaulting female patients. "At the same time, I am very relieved to hear her acknowledgement that we would not be here had the adults in authority done what they should have done 20 years ago".

"My monster is gone", said Kyle Stephens, Nassar's youngest victim, whom he began assaulting when she was 6.

"It was hard to believe. I know that", Margraves told reporters during a public apology.

In all, some 265 women and girls have reported being molested by Nassar.

Simone added: "It is not normal to receive any type of treatment from a trusted team physician and refer to it horrifyingly as the "special" treatment".

Nassar's conduct "robbed these girls and women of one of the most truly important human qualities: trust", Judge Janice Cunningham said.

A MI sheriff said former U.S. Olympic women's gymnastics coach John Geddert is facing a criminal investigation after complaints were filed in the wake of the sexual abuse cases against Larry Nassar.

Cunningham also told Nassar he has lived an "idolized life" and has been "pampered" Michigan Radio's Lindsey Smith reports.

"I understand and acknowledge that it pales in comparison to the pain, trauma and emotions that you all are feeling", he said, writes Matt Mencarini of the Lansing State Journal. They said their other sister also had been molested by Nassar.

In an interview with "60 Minutes", Raisman revealed she had spoken to the Federal Bureau of Investigation about Nassar following the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, following allegations against USA Gymnastics of withholding reports of sexual abuse.

Rachael Denhollander was one of the first to come forward about Nassar's abuse when she told her story to the IndyStar in September of 2016. Several victims said they raised complaints about Nassar to coaches and trainers at Michigan State as far back as 1997.
