Former Larry Nassar patient living in Indianapolis shocked by abuse case

Larry Nassar was the team doctor at USA Gymnastics and at a Michigan State University clinic when he sexually assaulted over 260 women and girls

"I feel like a weigh is lifted off my shoulders, this huge burden that was weighing on me for so many years", she said. But she says she hopes the university and USA Gymnastics will be transparent and "show the world how this was missed, the mistake that were made". His defense lawyer, Shannon Smith, said she expects Nassar to appeal his various sentences but that she isn't planning on defending him in those cases. And if you fancy, cross stitch, there's even a downloadable pattern with the words, "Do Your Magnificent Things".

The Associated Press said those reports did not result in criminal charges.

The latest sentence of 40 to 125 years was handed down on Monday and was for Nassar's molestation of young athletes at Twistars, an elite MI gymnastics club.

Rachael Denhollander said after Monday's sentencing that victims "wouldn't be here had the adults and authorities done what they should have done 20 years ago". She proceeded to speak directly to Nassar, informing him that his actions would "haunt survivors [for] the rest of their lives".

The sex abuse scandal centers around MSU, USA Gymnastics and a gym in Eaton County.

In addition to working for the national gymnastics team, Nassar was employed by Michigan State University - which has launched its own investigation after dozens of women filed lawsuits against campus officials who allegedly ignored complaints of abuse. Larissa Boyce, a former youth gymnast, says she told Michigan State coach Kathie Klages in 1997 that Nassar had touched her inappropriately.

"I never got a phone call from the police or the FBI", Gina Nichols, the mother of one of Nassar's victims told the Times.

A MI judge has slapped former USA Gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar with an additional 40-125 years in prison after the shamed physician pleaded guilty to three more counts of sexual misconduct, this time in Eaton County.

There were silent hugs and quiet tears in the gallery of an Eaton County courtroom Monday morning as convicted sexual predator Larry Nassar spent what will likely be his final seconds in a public setting with his head down and hands folded in his lap.

The testimonies come after more than 150 young women, including Thomashow, gave gut-wrenching accounts of Nassar's abuse in nearby Ingham County. A federal judge sentenced Nassar to 60 years in federal prison on child pornography charges in December.

A prosecutor said the disgraced former sports doctor deserves the "blame and shame" for molesting girls, not their parents.

The sentence does not lengthen what already amounts to a life sentence for the 54-year-old, as he will serve it concurrently with the 40- to 175-year sentence he received last month for seven counts of sexual assault in nearby Lansing, Michigan.
