Nassar Sentenced to Up to 175 Years in Prison
Lansing, MI. (WOLO) — Former USA Gymnastics doctor accused by more than a hundred and fifty woman of sexually assaulting them, while serving as their medical professional will have a long time to think about his actions.
Wednesday Doctor Larry Nassar addressed the court for the first time since pleading guilty to criminal sexual conduct, on top of the 60 year sentenced already handed down in a Federal child pornography case.
Before a sentencing was handed down Judge Rosemarie Aquilina allowed Nassar to read a statement to the court,
where Nassar admitted the words heard repeatedly in the courtroom, he said have “Shaken me to my core” and offered an apology to the victims saying” There are no words that can describe the depth and breadth of how sorry I am for what has occurred.”
Judge Aquilina, paused before responding to Nassar saying ” You should be shaken to your core” and sentenced him to 175 years in Prison.
Nassar is expected to appear in court again for additional criminal charges in Eaton County Michigan where he faces 3 counts of Criminal Sexual Conduct.
