Larry Nassar sentenced to 175 years for sexual abuse

Sentencing Larry Nassar Is Only a Start

Another of Nassar's victims, Kaylee Lorincz, told the court: "We were ultimately strong enough to take you down".

Larson said Nassar molested her until she retired from the elite team at 19. "As an MSU alumnus, I add my voice to those calling for President Simon's resignation, and I will work in the U.S. Senate to address the failures that led us to this day".

But afterwards, Raisman said she "was sick", nearly passed out, and had a bad headache for hours.

Nassar, who is already serving a 60-year prison sentence for possession of child pornography, is due to be sentenced for three further counts next week. "But after, I will be honest, I was sick".

Lou Anna Simon announced her resignation just hours after Nassar was sentenced to 40 to 175 years in prison for sexually abusing young athletes.

"You don't get it", she told the former doctor. "But I'm very, very exhausted from it". She was barely 15 years old at the time, and suffering from chronic back pain, when Dr. Nassar stole her innocence. Today, the Michigan House of Representatives approved a resolution that called for her to either resign or be fired. "One who is capable of manipulating his victims through coldly calculated grooming methodologies presenting the most wholesome and caring external persona", Denhollander said in the courtroom. "It was insane. I did not expect that at all".




Nassar turned to the courtroom gallery to make a brief statement, saying that the victims' accounts had "shaken me to my core".

"No, I mean, it's not something where you instantly just feel better", Raisman said.

With the judgment rendered, the Detroit Free Press paid tribute to the many, many women who bravely came forward about Nassar's abuse.

Athletics officials and officials of the US Gymnastics organisations will also not be left out of upcoming investigations into the culture of silence that has trailed numerous uncovered abuse cases since Harvey Weinstein's.

Even though she had never met most of these women, Raisman said she felt an "instant connection" with them.

Rachel Denhollander was the last of some 160 women to tell their tragic and heart-wrenching stories of how Larry Nassar stole their innocence. We have been working on taking steps at the USOC and mandating changes among National Governing Bodies to ensure this does not happen again.
