In a serial sexual assault spree that lasted for decades and was described as “incomprehensible and spans the country and the world,” former Olympic doctor Larry Nassar was sentenced on Monday to an extra 40 to 125 years in prison.
Two people with knowledge of the matter state that he is in a stable condition. At the United States Penitentiary Coleman II, a maximum security federal facility in Florida, one inmate was allegedly assaulted on Sunday, but no one else was hurt, according to the Bureau of Prisons. According to a source, authorities have named at least one suspect, a fellow prisoner, and are investigating the evidence, including video footage, to see if anyone else was involved.
Cunningham addressed Nassar in front of a large audience of victims in Eaton County Circuit Court, saying, “I am not convinced you truly understand what you did is wrong and the devastating impact you have had on the victims, their families, and friends.” “You are a physician. It is incomprehensible that you violated your promise of loyalty by hurting more than 256 women, she remarked.
For numerous charges of sexual assault there, a judge in the neighbouring Ingham County sentenced Nassar to 40 to 175 years in prison last month. The punishment was added to the 60 years he had received after pleading guilty to federal counts of possessing child pornography in December. Nassar admitted confessed to many sexual misconduct charges in both counties. Before the judge handed down sentencing, assistant attorney general for Michigan, Angela Povilaitis, asked the judge, “Your honour, will we ever truly know the breadth of the evil acts meted by this defendant.” These ladies gave frank, emotive accounts of what he did as well as the impact it had on their lives and the lives of their families.
