Larry Nassar, the gymnastics physician whose sexual assault cases have rocked Michigan State University was sentenced to life imprisonment. Finally, Aquilina delivered her sentence a minimum of 40 years, a maximum of 175 years in Michigan state prison — effectively guaranteeing a life sentence for the 54-year-old former Michigan State University and USA Gymnastics team physician, who also faces a 60-year sentence for federal child pornography crimes.

After seven days of listening to more than 160 girls, women and parents describe the impact of his sexual abuse, disgraced gymnastics physician Larry Nassar turned to the courtroom Wednesday and quietly attempted an apology, saying, “There are no words that can describe the depth and breadth for how sorry I am for what has occurred.”

The government has also announced an award for all the women who dared to expose the true colors of the doctor without fearing his threats.
