Local gymnast reacts to Larry Nassar's sentencing

Local gymnast reacts to Larry Nassar's sentencing

Because sir, you do not deserve to walk outside of a prison ever again ... That you're a danger. Nassar admitted molesting athletes during treatment when he was employed by Michigan State University and USA Gymnastics.

In a brief statement before sentencing, Nassar said that he would "carry the words" of his victims for the rest of his life.

MI sports doctor Larry Nassar has told his sexual assault victims that "no words" can describe how sorry he is for his crimes.

Nassar objected to the many statements, saying that Aquilina had turned the hearing into a "media circus". "It was not medical", the judge said. I'm giving you 175 years, which is 2,100 months ...

The disgraced former doctor was already sentenced to 60 years in prison in December on child pornography charges.

Court officials initially expected 88 victims to speak in court. Rachael Denhollander, the first woman to publicly accuse him in 2016, shared a hug with Angela Povilaitis, the lead prosecutor.

Nassar had faced a minimum sentence of 25 to 45 years behind bars and a maximum of 125 years. How much is a young woman worth?

"Ultimately, Larry, you made a critical mistake", she said, looking at Nassar.

Finally, Blackmun invited any of the athletes on Team USA to approach him directly should they feel the U.S. Olympic Committee is not doing enough to protect them. I took a Zofran because I was so nauseous.

"I can speak the truth about my abuse without minimization, or mitigation, and I can call it evil, because I know what goodness is." she said.

The scandal's impact is far from over, with prominent gymnasts castigating USA Gymnastics for its handling of the scandal and the president of Michigan State University, where Nassar also worked, coming under pressure to resign. "We have said it in other contexts, but we have not been direct enough with you".

Aquilina tossed Nassar's letter in disgust, asking him if he wanted to withdraw his plea before continuing with sentencing, telling Nassar that what he did was not a medical treatment.

Several women cried as he spoke.

Johnson also mentioned gymnasts, including Aly Raisman and Jordyn Wieber, facing Nassar in court to deliver searing impact statements.

"You are so sick".

"You lied to me and manipulated me to think that when you treated me you closed your eyes because you had been working hard, when you were really touching me, an innocent child, to pleasure yourself".

The USOC said the objective of its letter was to apologize to the victims and lay out the steps the organization would take to protect athletes.

The Nassar case has brought attention to abuse in the gymnastics.

USA Gymnastics announced the resignation of three board members Monday.

Larson is also calling on House Speaker Paul Ryan to pass revised legislation which would require stiffer mandates for US amateur athletic organizations to report alleged abuse.

Michigan's two US senators joined a growing chorus of people calling on MSU President Lou Anna Simon to resign in the wake of the controversy surrounding Larry Nassar.

Simon attended part of the session Wednesday.
