https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/larry-nassar-updates-prison-high-security-sentence-years-jail-sentencing-gymnastics-doctor-coach-us-a8205361.htmlOn January 16 Larry Nassar, who was once a world-famous sports physician that treated some of America’s famous Olympic gymnastic athletes, was sentenced to a total of 175 years in prison. He has a hearing where 156 women spoke in court and told stories about how Larry sexually abused them through his professional position. Many of the women stated that he uses abuse and referred it as a specific treatment for their injuries. This has been going on for the last two decades. Some of the women he harassed included famous gymnasts Aly Raisman, Simone Biles, McKayla Maroney and Gabby Douglas.
Nassar had a hearing before all of this happened, he was sentenced to 65 years due to seven counts of criminal sexual conduct in Ingham County in Michigan.
At the hearing on January 16, the judge said: “I’ve just signed your death warrant; I find that you don’t get it, that you’re a danger- That you remain a danger.”
After all of the incidents and all these years, he has finally been put away for good.
