Former USA Gymnastics Doctor Sentenced To 60 Years In Child Pornography Case

McKayla Maroney, mother want Larry Nassar to spend the rest of his life in prison
Nassar was the team doctor for USA Gymnastics through four Olympic Games, and he worked at Michigan State University from 1997 to 2016 as an associate professor and as the gymnastics and women's crew team physician.
A MI sports doctor who admits he molested gymnasts and kept a staggering collection of child pornography is getting the first of three prison sentences that will likely keep him locked up for decades. Nassar has already admitted to downloading child pornography, and will be sentenced in federal court on Thursday.
According to ESPN.com, Judge Janet T. Neff told Nassar at his sentencing that he used his position of authority to sexually assault young women during his career as a doctor with U.S. gymnastics and Michigan State University, thus violating the most basic principle of medicine.
Nassar, who worked with USA Gymnastics for almost three decades as a trainer and medical coordinator, could receive a minimum sentence of 27 years, but prosecutors want a 60-year prison term.
Maroney has said in the past that Nassar called his abuse "treatment". "I really did try to be a good person".
"Soon after Larry pleaded guilty to federal child pornography charges, I was informed that I could submit a Victim Impact Statement to the court for sentencing consideration". "As it turns out, much to my demise, Dr. Nassar was not a doctor, he in fact is, was, and forever shall be, a child molester, and a monster of a human being".
"He abused my trust, abused my body and left scars on my psyche that may never heal", McKayla told the court in her letter. This does not sit well for McKayla Maroney, who does not believe there should be a limit on Nassar's term.
After police began their investigation, the Indianapolis Star published Denhollander's story, and MSU fired Nassar soon after in September 2016. He then paid $49 to have his laptop wiped of the child pornography and threw away hard drives that contained child pornography, according to court documents.
McKayla Maroney, now 21 and retired from the sport for more than a year, said Nassar - who also worked at Michigan State for decades and has been accused of sexually abusing former student-athletes there - "treated" her both before she and the "Fierce Five" won their team gold and before she won silver in the vault in London.
One of the drives was at the top of the trash.
Some of the videos appeared to show Nassar assaulting young girls in a pool, investigators said. "The government said he had 37,000 images of child pornography, including images of children as young as infants", MLive reports. Toward the end of one clip, the agent testified, Nassar is seen allegedly grabbing a hand of one girl and shoving it into the crotch of another.
Each conviction carried a 20-year sentence for Nassar, who had pleaded guilty to those charges in July. He admits he molested girls with his hands when they sought treatment for hip and back pain.
