Larry Nassar Sentenced to Up to 175 Years in Prison for Sexual Abuse Case

Larry Nassar, who was accused of sexual misconduct by over 150 women, has been sentenced to 40 to 175 years in prison for his sex crimes, the New York Times reports.

150 brave women came to court in Lansing, Michigan to read statements about the abuse they suffered. Nassar was the USA Gymnastics doctor for years before he was charged.

Among the women who came forward was Olympian Aly Raisman, who spoke in court in a powerful testimony.

“I just signed your death warrant,” Judge Rosemarie Aquilina said when she handed down her sentencing. “You do not deserve to walk outside of a prison ever again.”

The judge also added that it was an “honor” and “privilege” to sentence Nassar.

Nassar was also previously sentenced to 60 years in prison for child pornography.

Watch Aly Raisman's Powerful Testimony Against Larry Nassar

Aly Raisman gave a nearly 13-minute speech in court on Friday (January 19) in which she spoke out about the abuse she faced at the hands of doctor Larry Nassar.

The 23-year-old two-time Olympian, who was part of both 2012′s “Fierce Five” and 2016′s “Final Five,” detailed how Nassar gained and betrayed her trust, as well as how his mandatory “treatments” were unavoidable.

“I am also here to tell you to your face Larry that you have not taken gymnastics away from me. I love this sport and that love is stronger than the evil that resides in you, and those who enabled you to hurt many people,” Aly said during her speech. “You already know you’re going away to a place where you won’t be able to hurt anybody ever again. But I am here to tell you that I will not rest until every last trace of your influences on this sport has been destroyed like the cancer it is.”

Nassar was sentenced to 60 years in prison for his actions.

McKayla Maroney Will Not Be Fined by USA Gymnastics if She Testifies Against Larry Nassar

McKayla Maroney can feel free to speak out at her alleged abuser Larry Nassar‘s sentencing hearing without worrying about a potential $100,000 fine from USA Gymnastics.

As part of her $1.25 million settlement with the organization in December 2016, the Olympian agreed to not publicly talk about the abuse she experienced.

After Chrissy Teigen and more celebs offered to pay for the fine if McKayla chose to speak out, USA Gymnastics released a statement to let people know they will not pursue a fine.

“USA Gymnastics has not sought and will not seek any money from McKayla Maroney for her brave statements made in describing her victimization and abuse by Larry Nassar, nor for any victim impact statements she wants to make to Larry Nassar at this hearing or at any subsequent hearings related to his sentencing,” the organization told USA Today. “This has been her right and USA Gymnastics encourages McKayla and anyone who has been abused to speak out. USA Gymnastics remains focused on our highest priority – the safety, health and well-being of our athletes and creating a culture that empowers and supports them.”

Kristen Bell & Susan Sarandon Offer to Chip in for McKayla Maroney's Potential $100,000 Fine

Chrissy Teigen received a ton of praise today (January 16) for offering to pay the potential $100,000 fine that McKayla Maroney faces if she testifies against accused abuser Larry Nassar at his sentencing hearing.

Now, Kristen Bell, Susan Sarandon, and Fremulon Insurance pension fund monitor Ken Tremendous have offered to chip in to split the fine with Chrissy.

“I’ll split it with you,” Ken wrote while quoting Chrissy‘s original tweet offering to pay the fine. Kristen added, “I’ll 1/3 it with you guys,” which led to Susan saying, “I’ll 1/4 it with you guys.”

McKayla faces the massive fine if she speaks in court as she signed an NDA that ordered her to stay quiet when she accepted a reported $1.25 million in a settlement from USA Gymnastics.
