 Larry Nassar, a former USA gymnastics doctor, is guilty of sexually assaulting and harassing over 150 women in the past 20 years, during his career.

     On January 16, 2018, Larry Nassar had his sentencing hearing in Lansing, Michigan. According to CNN, Judge Rosemarie Aquilina sentenced Larry 175 years in prison.

     “I just signed your death warrant… I find that you don’t get it, that you’re a danger. You remain a danger,” says Judge Rosemarie.

     The sentencing hearing lasted a week with 156 people speaking up and sharing their experiences with Larry. Women such as Aly Raisman, Jordyn Wieber, Rachael Denhollander, Kyle Stephens, and many others believed that the sexual encounters were medical treatments, as Larry assured. As well as knowing that Larry was a doctor, they couldn’t expect a doctor to assault a child.

     “There are no words that can describe the depth and breadth of how sorry I am for what has occurred. An acceptable apology to all of you is impossible to write and convey. I will carry your words with me for the rest of my days,” Larry apologized during his sentencing.

     According to CNN, many women spoke out about the assaults to Michigan State University and the US Olympic Committee, long before Larry’s sentencing, but MSU ignored the complaints about Larry. People believe that Michigan State University and the US Olympic Committee should be held accountable for allowing Larry Nassar to perform “treatments” on gymnasts.
