Disgraced long-time US Gymnastics team doctor Larry Nassar has been sentenced to up to 175 years in prison for molesting young female gymnasts, following days of wrenching testimony from about 160 of his victims, including Olympic gold medallists.
Nassar pleaded guilty in November to seven counts of first-degree sex assault in Ingham County, and three additional charges in Eaton County
He is already serving a 60-year sentence in federal prison for child pornography convictions
“I wouldn’t send my dogs to you, sir,” judge told him during sentencing
“I’ve just signed your death warrant,” Ingham County Circuit Court Judge Rosemarie Aquilina told Nassar in imposing the penalty, after delivering a searing rebuke of his years as an abuser.
“It is my honour and privilege to sentence you because you do not deserve to walk outside of a prison ever again.”
