  • Former USA Olympics doctor Larry Nassar pleads guilty to first-degree criminal sexual conduct

He faces a possible minimum of forty years in prison.

Former Michigan State University and USA Gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar arrives at Ingham County Circuit Court on November 22, 2017 in Lansing, Michigan.

Nassar has been accused of abusing more than 130 women - including Olympic gold medalists Gabby Douglas, Aly Raisman and McKayla Maroney. He is facing similar charges in the MI area, which have been filed by more than 125 women and girls. I want this community to heal.

"I'm so sorry that this was like a match that turned into a forest fire, out of control", he said. "We need to move forward in a sense of growth and healing and I pray (for) that". I have no animosity toward any one.




Judge Rosemarie Aquilina said Nassar said sexual abuse was a nationwide 'epidemic'. "I agree that now is a time of healing, but it may take them a lifetime of healing while you spend your life behind bars thinking of what you did by taking away their childhood".

While Douglas didn't go into detail surrounding her assault, she did say, "I didn't publicly share my experiences as well as many other things because for years we were conditioned to stay silent and honestly some things were extremely painful".

Aly Raisman has taken to social media following Larry Nassar's guilty plea and sentencing on seven accounts of sexual assault.

Her allegations follow similar revelations last week by teammate Raisman, who called Nassar "a monster" who molested her under the guise of giving her medical treatment. The Detroit News reported that he is expected to plead guilty to first-degree criminal sexual conduct charges he assaulted girls during treatment.
