Larry Nassar has option to speak before final sentence

Gymnasts' abuser sentenced a 3rd time

Nassar, a former doctor with Team USA Gymnastics, was sentenced to another 40 to 125 years in prison by a MI judge Monday.

The sentence today is the last of the criminal cases against Nassar, who was also sentenced to 60 years in federal court for possession of child pornography.

Gymnasts from the two teams thanked the women who have told their stories of abuse at the hands of convicted molester Dr. Larry Nassar.

The latest sentence stems from abuse he committed at the Twistars gymnastics training centre in MI, where victims said in court they were referred to Nassar for treatment and were molested.

Almost 200 girls and women gave victim impact statements during Nassar's three sentencing hearings, with some, including Olympic gold medalist Aly Raisman, detailing the way Nassar abused them.

This sentencing closes weeks of courageous and heartbreaking victim impact statements from Nassar's victims and their families.

Some said they hadn't come to terms with their own abuse until they watched the victim impact statements in Nassar's Ingham County sentencing hearing.

Judge Janice Cunningham said she did not believe Nassar understood the severity of his crimes after he suggested in a pre-sentencing interview that he had done nothing wrong.

ESPN's Outside the Lines published a report detailing a culture of administrators enabling physical and sexual abuse at Michigan State, which stretched pass Nassar and implicated the school's football and men's basketball programs.

One of the first women to publicly accuse former sports doctor Larry Nassar of sexual abuse says victims are now focusing on "institutional dynamics" that allowed the abuse to occur.

The S&P 500 tumbled 59.8 points, falling 2.12% to 2,762.13, while the Nasdaq closed 144.91 points lower at 7,240.9, down 1.96%. Canada's main stock index dropped 3.9 per cent this week, plummeting more than 200 points today in a broad-based decline.

He listened to dozens of victims last week and was nearly attacked by a man whose three daughters said they were molested.

Nassar told the court: "It's impossible to convey the breadth and depth of how sorry I am to each and every one".

The doctor offered a brief apology to his victims on Monday, saying, "The visions of your testimonies will forever be present in my thoughts".

Assistant Attorney General Angela Povilaitis, in her closing argument, reminded the judge how far-reaching Nassar's abuse was.

This Eaton County sentence will run concurrently with the 40-to-175-year sentence in Ingham County, Michigan.

At Wildcard Gymnastics in Brookfield, co-owner Ben Grining said Nassar's actions were shocking to him and other gymnastics parents.

Board members of USA Gymnastics also stepped down, and a law firm is investigating the U.S. Olympic Committee's response to its knowledge of the allegations against Nassar.

She described the backroom of Twistars as a place where Nassar had "a cattle call of victims" lined up to seek treatment.

The 54-year-old's life since then has been a series of guilty pleas, court hearings and prison sentences.
