Larry Nassar Could Face 360 Years Behind Bars After Final Sentence

The former gymnastics doctor had his third court hearing this Monday.

Larry Nassar will spend his entire life behind bars for his sexual assault crimes. The sick former U.S.A. Gymnastics doctor received his third and final sentence this Monday, February 5.

After an explosive court-hearing in Michigan, Nassar, 54, was given 40-125 years in prison by Judge Janice Cunningham.

“This now ends the criminal legal proceedings of Larry Nassar,” said the judge, according to FOX News.

The decision came after the ex-physician was made to listen to dozens of statements from his many female victims over the course of several days. Speakers included Olympians Aly Raisman, Jordyn Wieberand many others.

“Each voice and each story does make a difference,” stated Judge Cunningham during the trial. “Their stories are not redundant, even though many of the descriptions of the grooming by [Nassar] were eerily similar.”

He was even almost attacked by a furious father whose three daughters were allegedly abused by him.

 

As readers know, the most recent jail sentence comes after Nassar was already given 40 to 175 years by Judge Rosemarie Aquilina. He was also previously sentenced to 60 years in federal prison after pleading guilty to possession of child pornography.
