Nassar Receives Third and Final Prison Sentence

They say he lacks academic experience. He was also a leader in community, serving as the sports team doctor for Holt Public Schools and Sunday school teacher at St. Thomas Aquinas Church in East Lansing.

The Nassar controversy has cast a shadow over Michigan State, with Michigan State president Lou Anna Simon resigning and athletic director Mark Hollis retiring.

Disgraced sports doctor Larry Nassar received his third and final sentence on Monday.

Cunningham thanked the women and girls who provided impact statements in court.

"If it is hard and difficult for me to hear what his daughters had to say, I can't imagine what it is like for him".

"Society must be protected from Larry Nassar", she said. "Because, sir, you do not deserve to walk outside of a prison ever again", Aquilina said at the previous sentencing.

"My monster is gone", said Kyle Stephens, Nassar's youngest victim, whom he began assaulting when she was 6.

Combined, Nassar faces a maximum of 360 years in prison.

They said Geddert created an ultra-competitive atmosphere, was indifferent to injuries and rarely offered gymnasts any choice to see a different doctor. But Nassar's sentencing renewed the attention on the organization's potential failures.

MSU, the gymnastics governing organisation and the US Olympic Committee have all come under scrutiny and are facing various investigations.

During the hearings in Eaton County, survivors claimed Geddert and other coaches used bullying tactics that allowed Nassar to befriend athletes, gain their trust and become their confidants. Minutes earlier, Nassar told a room full of some of the women he manipulated and abused that their words would stay with him in prison for the rest of his life. The case focused on sexual assaults at Twistars, a gym for elite gymnasts in Eaton County, Michigan.

Eaton County Circuit Court Judge Janice Cunningham told Nassar that his crimes are incomprehensible. "... I do not believe there is a likelihood you could be reformed". "It's impossible to convey the depth and breadth of how sorry I am to each and every one involved", he said.

Nassar has been accused of sexually abusing 265 women throughout his career.

For the last three weeks, Nassar has sat for two sentencing hearings related to his guilty pleas on 10 counts of sexual assault.

"It could have happened to any parent", she said.

Nassar gave a small statement of regret before the court ruling on Monday.

Nassar has admitted to using his bare hands to penetrate girls under the guise of medical treatment at the gymnastics club Twistars. He worked for Michigan State University and USA Gymnastics, which trains Olympians.
