Former Team USA doctor Larry Nassar will spend the rest of his life behind bars.
According to TMZ, Nassar has received 175 years in prison for sexually assaulting over 150 women and girls. Among his victims includes former Olympic gymnasts Aly Raisman, Jordyn Weiber, and Simone Biles.
While handing down his sentence, the judge told him:
“Sir, I’m giving you 175 years which is 2,100 months. I’ve just signed your death warrant”
However, this isn’t the only prison time he’ll be doing; he was already found guilty in a separate child porn case and received 60 years in jail.
Right before sentencing, Nassar gave his own statement to his victims, saying:
“Your words these past several days — your words have had a significant emotional effect on myself and has shaken me to my core. I also recognize that what I’m feeling pales in comparison to the pain and trauma and emotional destruction you are all feeling. There are no words that can describe the breadth and depth for how sorry I am for what has occurred.”
