USA Olympic doctor Nassar jailed for 60 years over child porn

Not Released McKayla Maroney believes ex-doctor Larry Nassar should spend the rest of his life behind bars

Nassar is also set to be sentenced in January in two MI courts after pleading guilty to additional counts of criminal sexual conduct related to allegations he assaulted girls under the guise of medical treatment.

Shannon Smith, an attorney for Nassar, said he was "devastated" by the sentence and that he would appeal the sentence.

He also faces sentencing from state judges in Ingham and Eaton counties for 10 charges of first-degree criminal sexual conduct involving nine young women.

Once one of the most respected sports physicians in the country specialising in treating gymnasts, Nassar's swift downfall started last August, when a woman filed a police report alleging Nassar had assaulted her during a medical examination years prior, when she was a 15-year-old gymnast in MI seeking treatment for back pain.

Olympic gold medallists McKayla Maroney, Aly Raisman and Gabby Douglas have said they were among the members of the U.S. Gymnastics team assaulted by Nassar when he served as team doctor. In both cases, plea deals dictate a minimum sentence of 25 to 40 years and a maximum of life in prison, the State Journal reports.

Nassar's sentencing is scheduled for Thursday. “I really did try to be a good person. "Mr. Nassar was, is and, in my view, will continue to be a danger to children".

At a news conference Thursday, Rachael Denhollander, one of Nassar's victims and among those suing USA Gymnastics and Michigan State University, said the organizations failed to protect them from the abuse. "He abused my trust, abused my body and left scars on my psyche that may never heal", she wrote.

Nassar is also named in civil lawsuits, in which he is accused of sexual misconduct by more than 125 women and girls.

"When I first met Larry Nassar".

“We intend to fight for justice for the victims, ” Manly said. When he turned in his work laptop computer, officials said it had been wiped completely clean, including the operating system.

One of the drives was at the top of the trash.

The videos included footage from a pool with Nassar swimming with several children, according to testimony from an Federal Bureau of Investigation agent previous year. The hard drives were found by investigators because the trash truck on his street was late. 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. At 14, she made the National Team and was introduced to Nassar.

Nassar, 54, pleaded guilty in July to possessing thousands of images and videos of child pornography between 2003 and 2016.
