Nassar case signals shift in sexual assault discourse

Posted February 07, 2018

Larry Nassar, the former doctor for USA Gymnastics and Michigan State University, was sentenced for the final time in an Eaton County, Michigan courtroom on Monday.

The former USA Gymnastics and Michigan State University physician had pleaded guilty to sexual assault in Eaton County. They told the judge how he sexually assaulted them under the guise that he was performing medical treatments.

He had previously been sentenced to 60 years in prison on child pornography possession charges in December, and up to 175 years in prison on sexual abuse charges in January.

Nassar issued an apology to his victims in court, but the judge did not seem to be particularly moved by his words, telling him "I am not convinced that you understand what you did was wrong".

The abuse came to light after an Indianapolis Star investigation in 2016 reported accusations against Dr. Nassar that went back decades.

The 31-year-old third baseman hit a combined.213 with 27 home runs and 76 RBI with the Yankees and White Sox last season. This signing also gives Asdrubal Cabrera what he's wanted, which is the chance to play second base rather than third.

Its longtime president, Lou Anna Simon, resigned last month, and the board of trustees voted unanimously to name John Engler, the former governor of MI, as its interim president.

"You are a doctor, you took an oath to do no harm and you have harmed over 256 women and that is beyond comprehension", Eaton County Judge Janice Cunningham said to Nassar as she handed down his sentence.

Former sports Dr. Larry Nassar was sentenced to 40 to 125 years in prison during his third and final prison sentencing Monday.

Nassar had massaged 17-year-old Brianne Randall-Gay's breasts and tried to put his fingers in her vagina. The judge said she could not do that. Forsyth, a retired county prosecutor, was appointed to investigate Michigan State by Attorney General Bill Schuette.

Separately, USA Gymnastics said it became aware of Nassar's sexual abuse in the summer of 2015 when three top gymnasts said he abused them.

Finally, they'd forfeit a 2019 compensatory draft pick if they ultimately pulled the tag rather than letting him walk now. By doing so, it would allow the Redskins to trade Cousins instead of him walking away as an unrestricted free agent.

"I am overwhelmed with gratitude to hear Judge Cunningham say this concludes the criminal prosecution of Larry Nassar", Denhollander said. Almost 260 girls and women provided testimony against the 54-year-old, including Olympic gold medallists Aly Raisman and McKayla Maroney.

Geddert is a longtime associate of Nassar, who once worked at Geddert's elite Twistars Gymnastics Club in MI.

Denhollander and Boyce both said Monday's proceedings came as a relief after a few long weeks in court and much longer years waiting to see Nassar brought to justice.

Officials believe Nassar abused at least 265 women since the1990s by penetrating them with ungloved hands, but warned the true figure could be far higher. "It's impossible to convey the depth and breadth of how sorry I am to each and everyone involved".
