Larry Nassar sentenced to 40 to 125 years on Eaton County charges

Former Michigan State University and USA Gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar has been sentenced to another 40-125 years in prison

The third and final case against Nassar focused on sexual abuse at an elite gymnastics facility in Eaton County, Michigan.

During the sentencing period, 265 girls and young women came forward to accuse Nassar of sexual abuse.

During Monday's final sentencing, Nassar spoke about all the courageous women and girls who have come forward to tell their stories.

"The words expressed by everyone that has spoken, including the parents, have impacted me to my innermost core", Nassar said.

She said she doesn't have confidence Nassar truly understands the devastation of the abuse he inflicted and the emotional and physical pain he's caused the women he abused.

Larissa Boyce - the first to tell a Michigan State University official about Nassar 20 years ago but was not believed - said Friday in a public statement that this moment can not be forgotten.

This week, the police department in Meridian, Michigan, apologised publicly to one victim for declining to press charges against Nassar in 2004 when she reported that he abused her.

About 200 of his victims faced Nassar during the court proceedings.

During last year's drills , Pyongyang launched multiple missile tests and held a massive artillery exercise at the end of April . Former Olympic swimming champ Dara Torres told CNN in 2012: "What happens in the (Olympic) Village stays in the Village".

The chaotic scene began after sisters Lauren and Madison Margraves had finished reading their victim statements on the second day of hearings at a court in Eaton County.

Nassar offered a brief apology to his victims yesterday, saying: "The visions of your testimonies will forever be present in my thoughts".

Judge Cunningham said Nassar's conduct "spans the country and the world". "You don't get it, and I do not believe there's a likelihood that you could be reformed", she said, reports Michigan Live. He worked for Michigan State and USA Gymnastics, which trains Olympians. For many of these women, of whom many are gymnasts, "treatment" by Nassar was mandatory.

"It is unfathomable to think about the number of victims that would have been spared had authorities acted upon the complains received years ago", Judge Cunningham said on Monday. This comes less than two weeks after he was initially given 40-175 years for similar crimes, which the judge memorably declaring the sentencing his "death warrant".

The 54-year-old's life since then has been a series of guilty pleas, court hearings and prison sentences.

The charges in Eaton County stem from sexual assaults committed against three minors between 2009 and 2011 at Twistars Gymastics Club in the area.

The silence at times drove the victims and their families to distraction, including Gina Nichols, the mother of the gymnast initially known as "Athlete A": Maggie Nichols, who was not contacted by the F.B.I. for almost 11 months after the information she provided sparked the federal inquiry.
