After pleading guilty to seven counts of felony first-degree criminal sexual conduct in November, former U.S.A Gymnastics and Michigan State University doctor Larry Nassar has learned his fate in this case.
The disgraced former doctor was sentenced to 40 to 175 years in prison for sexually abusing girls under the guise of medical treatment. The sentence was handed down by Judge Rosemarie Aquilina in Ingham County Circuit Court in Lansing, Mich. on Wednesday after a week of emotional testimony from his victims in court. "It is my honor and privilege to sentence you because, sir, you do not deserve to walk outside of a prison ever again," Judge Aquilina told Nassar. "I've just signed your death warrant." The judge additionally awarded restitution to survivors for an amount to be determined. Additionally, She asked him not to treat people in prison as he no longer has a license.
