Larry Nassar Receives 60 Years On Federal Child Pornography Charges

Michigan sports doctor facing long sentence for child porn

He also pleaded guilty to 10 state counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct in November, with numerous 125 women who filed police reports against him in those cases saying he used his hands to penetrate them and claimed it was part of a medical procedure, according to ESPN.com.

Nassar's attorneys had asked the federal judge for leniency, arguing Nassar had helped fellow inmates and taken Bible classes since his arrest almost a year ago, the State Journal said.

The letters provided chilling and disturbing detail of the psychological toll Nassar's alleged sexual abuse took on the two-time Olympic gold medallist and former member of the "fierce five" women's gymnastics team from the 2012 London Olympics.

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. Nassar awaits sentencing for his child pornography case on Thursday- a sentence that carries at least 27 years in prison after his plea. "And that should terrify us". His sentencing is set before Judge Janet Neff at 11 a.m. "The seriousness of his conduct, and the devastating impact it has had on the lives of so many, can not be overstated".

The charges relate to Nassar's time a faculty member at Michigan State University, from 1997 to 2016, when, the university said, he was sacked after the allegations surfaced.

Investigators discovered more than 37,000 images showing child sexual abuse on Nassar's computers in 2016, reports the Associated Press news agency. He then paid $49 to have his laptop wiped of the child pornography and threw away hard drives that contained child pornography, according to court documents. Those accusations related to conduct with two minors in Nassar's swimming pool in the summer of 2015 and for "illicit sexual conduct" with two other minor children during interstate and worldwide travel, according to the plea agreement obtained by CNN.

McKayla Maroney is opening up about the alleged abuse she faced at the hands of accused Team USA doctor Larry Nassar. Raisman said. "Why not look at what about the culture?"

Mckayla, along with several other Team USA national gymnasts reported incidents to ESPN were Nassar abused them in their dorm rooms at the Karolyi Ranch and villages at the Olympics, despite a USA Gymnastics policy which forbids adults from being alone with minors. "We were told he's the best doctor, he's the United States Olympic doctor and the USA Gymnastics doctor, and we were very lucky we were able to see him".

"We don't comment unless charges are pending in a matter", he said.
