Aly Raisman on Larry Nassar verdict: 'He deserves to suffer'

Sentencing Larry Nassar Is Only a Start

Disgraced long-time USA Gymnastics team doctor Larry Nassar, now serving a 60-year sentence in federal prison after conviction in child pornography case, was on Wednesday sentenced to up to 175 years in prison for abusing young female girls, after 160 victims testified. He is 54 and will most likely die serving his sentence. You have not owned yet what you did. "I wouldn't send my dogs to you sir", she said. Nassar, who abused more than 150 girls and young women over several decades while employed as a doctor for Michigan State University and USA Gymnastics, will never be free again. "Every time I made eye contact with him and even when I started at him he looked me in the eye the whole entire time".

Strong words from Judge Rosemarie Aquilina at the sentencing of former Team USA gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar for sexual abuse. Also, Michigan State University (where Nassar maintained a sports medicine practice) has been seen plenty of outcry over the school failing to take quicker action.

Apart from Biles, other athletes including Jordyn Weiber, Alexandra Raisman, Jade Capua, Anne Marie Anderson, and Melissa Imrie too took to Twitter to express their gratitude toward Judge Aquilina.

The final woman to deliver a statement in court was Rachael Denhollander, the first to publicly accuse Nassar of abuse and file a police report against him. During her victim statement, Denhollander said Nassar "penetrated", "groped" and "fondled" her during what were disguised as treatments.

After the initial USAG resignations, Olympic gymnastics gold medalist Aly Raisman -herself a victim and survivor of Nassar's abuse-criticized the USOC for not doing more.

Michigan State University President Lou Anna Simon has turned in her resignation after Michigan's two U.S. Senators called for her to quit and the State House of Representatives approved a resolution making the same request.

The parade of harrowing accounts of Nassar's alleged abuse - often done under the guise of pain therapy, often with parents in the room - introduced fresh national attention and outrage to a case whose core facts have been well-established for almost a year. I have tried to make it not about me. Who should I have told? "It was insane, I did not expect that at all", she said.

In a statement posted to Twitter Wednesday evening, Raisman, referencing Nassar's victims, said, "As we all continue to process our pain and suffering, it is my hope that in some way, sharing out impact statements is part of our healing process".

"There are no words that can describe the depth and breadth for how sorry I am for what has occurred", Larry Nassar said at the end of his seven-day long sexual abuse trial.
