NCAA To Investigate MSU Over Nassar Allegations

NCAA To Investigate MSU Over Nassar Allegations

Evans said for too long, numerous victims hadn't been taken seriously when they tried to report Nassar's abuse. In December 2016, the Federal Bureau of Investigation also seized over 37,000 images and videos of child pornography from his home.

"I just signed your death warrant", Judge Rosemarie Aquilina said, in her Lansing, Mich., courtroom.

Nassar's plea deal called for a minimum of 25-40 years in prison for sexual assault, but the judge was infuriated by a letter that insisted Nassar was a good doctor.

After a long and emotional seven-day hearing, former USA Gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar sat through 156 impact statements from survivors of sexual abuse - abuse that is on his hands.

"There are no words that can describe the depth and breadth of how sorry I am for what has occurred", Nassar said.

But before the judge handed down the sentence, Nassar had the chance to speak.

Sue Carter, MSU Faculty Athletic Representative, resigned from her position on Wednesday, hours after ex-MSU doctor Larry Nassar was sentenced in court.

Nassar will appear in an Eaton County, Michigan, court on January 31 for another prison sentence. "I think we can all agree that someone of this maturity level should not be sexually active, but I was", Kyle Stephens said in her statement. She said after his sentencing, "I can't believe how fast it went, and how much I went through in this 18-month process".

A MI state prison sentenced Nassar to a minimum of 40 years and up to 175 years, The Washington Post reported. "You do not deserve to walk outside a prison again".

"The Olympic family is among those that have failed you", he said.

For her blistering statements and for her commitment to giving a platform to any victim willing to step forward over the week-long sentencing hearing, Aquilina has become a folk hero, especially on social media. And she concluded her response to the verdict by declaring, "All of these girls grew up to be strong women who destroyed his world".

"The tail end - because I need to send a message to the parole board in the event somehow God is gracious and I know he is - and you survive the 60 years in federal court first and then you start on my 40 years". "I submit to you that these children are worth everything".

Aquilina dismissed his apology as insincere and read portions of a letter he had written to her in which he claimed he had been manipulated into pleading guilty. They told deeply disturbing stories not just about Nassar's abuse, but also about the larger culture that surrounded it: People knew, and did nothing.

Nassar's sentencing followed several key developments earlier this week as USA Gymnastics announced the suspension of a well-known Olympic coach and the resignation of three board members.

However, in September 2016, The Indianapolis Star revealed that two former gymnasts had made allegations of sexual abuse against Nassar.
