USA Gymnastics physician sentenced to 60 years in prison for child porn

The infamous USA Gymnastics doctor, Larry Nassar was sentenced to 3 counts of 20-year sentences, to be served in federal prison consecutively. The sentences were made based on the 3 cases of sexual abuse presented in court. 

Nassar has received child pornography in 2004, stored it until 2016, and destroyed the evidence while under investigation. Each one of these actions added to his crime and increased the sentence.

Apart from the 60-year sentence he already received, the 54-year-old doctor will also face charges on 7 counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct against girls under the age of 13. He already pleaded guilty to these charges and will be awaiting the sentence in January.

Overall, around 140 women, including the gymnasts of the Olympic gold-winning team “Fierce Five” team, came forward with accusations of sexual abuse by Nassar. The lawsuit was filed by 5 women, Rachel Denhollander, Sterling Riethman, Kaylee Lorincz, Tiffany Thomas, and Jeanette Antolin.

Based on the confidential plea deal obtained by CNN, the prosecution dropped the charges of sexual exploitation and attempted sexual exploitation of children in return for Nassar’s guilty plea. 

Until 2016, Larry Nassar has been working as a doctor for the USA Gymnastics, an associate professor at Michigan State University, and a physician for the gymnastics and women’s crew teams.

The case has not only revealed years of sexual abuse happening at the Michigan State University but has also sparked discontent and public outrage against USA Gymnastics. According to the victims, institutions like USA Gymnastics and US Olympic Committee should also be held accountable for their lack of action and avoidance, which gave permission for harmful behavior like Nassar’s.

Rachel Denhollander, who was the first to file a complaint, said, “For 16 months, I and other victims of Larry have been pleading as to how he could have been left in positions of authority when MSU officials had been warned of his conduct as early as 1997 and when USAG was aware of flagrant violations of safety policies. And for 16 months, these organizations have deflected, they have told half-truths, they have closed ranks around themselves and they have refused to acknowledge the dynamics that allowed a pedophile to flourish in their midst.”

The case continues as Nassar awaits the upcoming court hearings and verdicts.
