Disgraced USA Gymnastics doc sentenced to another 40-125 years


first_img“He trained us to believe that he was a saint that could help us, and that without him we could not get better.”Nassar addressed the court Monday in a brief statement lasting less than a minute, offering an apology similar to the one he gave at the January sentencing hearing.“The words expressed by everyone that has spoken, including the parents, have impacted me to my innermost core,” Nassar said.“It’s impossible to convey the depth and breadth of how sorry I am to each and every one involved.”‘His lies worked’The key question for many victims has been who knew of Nassar’s abuse and who could have stopped him earlier.“We have taken care of one perpetrator, we have not taken care of the systems that allowed him to flourish for 20 years,” Rachael Denhollander, the first to publicly accuse Nassar, told a throng of news media at the courthouse following the sentencing.With a stellar reputation as the doctor to Olympic champions, Nassar evaded scrutiny several times since the late 1990s by insisting his abuse was in fact cutting-edge treatment that was misunderstood by some patients.“His lies worked,” lead prosecutor Angela Povilaitis said in her closing statement. “Each time he got away, he was empowered to continue and perfect his abuse and his techniques even more.”Even after Nassar came under serious scrutiny, his abuse was not immediately stopped.USA Gymnastics reported Nassar to the FBI in July 2015, but he continued to see patients at MSU until a newspaper exposed him in September 2016. Brace for potentially devastating typhoon approaching PH – NDRRMC Nassar 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.‘Master of manipulation’Over the past three weeks of court hearings, some 200 women, girls and victims’ family members confronted Nassar and gave wrenching accounts of his abuse and its lasting damage.They spoke of years of depression and post-traumatic stress disorder, suicide attempts and broken bodies that had not received proper care and suffered under chronic pain.Many victims gave nearly identical accounts of Nassar’s pattern of abuse: a star doctor who seemed to befriend them, only to suddenly abuse them during medical appointments — often with parents in the room.“Larry Nassar is a master of manipulation,” Kaitlyn Basel, a dancer who was first abused by Nassar at the age of 12, told the court Friday.ADVERTISEMENT Former Michigan State University and USA Gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar appears in court for his final sentencing phase in Eaton County Circuit Court on February 5, 2018, in Charlotte, Michigan.  AFPCHARLOTTE, United States — Larry Nassar, the former USA Gymnastics doctor who sexually abused girls and young women for decades under the guise of medical treatment, was sentenced Monday to an additional 40 to 125 years in prison.Nassar already faced a lifetime behind bars for two prior sentences after pleading guilty to sexually assaulting women and girls in his role as a high-profile sports medicine doctor at USA Gymnastics and at a Michigan State University (MSU) clinic.ADVERTISEMENT 2 ‘newbie’ drug pushers fall in Lucena sting The New York Times reported that at least 40 more women and girls were molested during that time.Victims have called for systemic changes at MSU and amateur athletics, and for others — such as coaches and organizational leaders — to be held accountable.Several resignations have followed, and MSU, the gymnastics governing organization and the US Olympic Committee all are facing investigations. /cbb Patience pays off Sports venues to be ready in time for SEA Games PLAY LIST 00:59Sports venues to be ready in time for SEA Games01:27Filipino athletes get grand send-off ahead of SEA Games00:50Trending Articles01:29Police teams find crossbows, bows in HK university01:35Panelo suggests discounted SEA Games tickets for students02:49Robredo: True leaders perform well despite having ‘uninspiring’ boss02:42PH underwater hockey team aims to make waves in SEA Games01:44Philippines marks anniversary of massacre with calls for justice01:19Fire erupts in Barangay Tatalon in Quezon City NEXT BLOCK ASIA 2.0 introduces GURUS AWARDS to recognize and reward industry influencers MOST READ Typhoon Kammuri accelerates, gains strength en route to PHcenter_img LATEST STORIES Read Next Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.
