Michigan doctor who assaulted gymnasts gets 60 years in prison

Former USA Gymnastics doctor sentenced to 60 years in federal child pornography case

A judge has sentenced a MI sports doctor to 60 years in federal prison for child pornography crimes, one of three criminal cases against a man who also admits assaulting female gymnasts.

This is the first of three criminal cases against Nassar, who also is accused of sexually assaulting multiple women and girls over decades as team doctor for USA Gymnastics and in the Michigan State athletic department. Michigan State and USA Gymnastics are defendants in numerous lawsuits.

The child pornography sentence brought Nassar a step closer to justice for many survivors, whom Nassar sexually assaulted years ago under the guise of a medical treatment. Later reports by the State Journal identified similar shortcomings at MSU: Between 1997 and 2015, at least seven women or girls say they raised concerns about Nassar's actions to coaches, trainers, police or university officials.

'He has demonstrated that he should never again have access to children, ' US District Judge Janet Neff was quoted by the Journal as saying.

Nassar's attorneys had asked the federal judge for leniency in court filings, arguing Nassar had helped fellow inmates and taken Bible classes since his arrest almost a year ago, the State Journal said. "As it turns out, much to my demise, Dr. Nassar was not a doctor, he in fact is, was, and forever shall be, a child molester, and a monster of a human being".

"He abused my trust, he abused my body and he left scars on my psyche that may never go away", Olympic gold medalist McKayla Maroney said in a victim statement submitted to Neff and published online.

His public downfall began in September 2016, when the Indianapolis Star named Nassar in a report on USA Gymastics' lackluster response to allegations of assault. It's the maximum sentence that prosecutors sought for Larry Nassar, who had more than 37,000 images of child porn on electronic devices. Images of children as young as infants were among his cache.

The videos included footage from a pool with Nassar swimming with several children, according to testimony from an Federal Bureau of Investigation agent past year. He has pleaded guilty to 10 sexual assault charges and will be sentenced next month.
