You might have seen the headline about Dr. Larry Nassar and what he did to all those beautiful ladies. In this article, we are going to give you details on this case to help you find out more about the horrible things he has done!
Dr. Lawrence G. Nassar, a former doctor of the American girls' gymnastics team, was convicted in one of the loudest trials of se*ual harassment for 175 years in prison. The words of the judge who read the sentence will go down in history. 160 women accused Nassar of se*ual harassment and abuse.
Dr. Larry Massar was a physician at Michigan State University and USA Gymnastics. He had been working there from 1986 to 2015. He then was fired in September 2016 for "criminal se*ual conduct with a person younger than 13.". All the patients he visited ended up in the same critical situation of being penetrated by the doctor. Lindsey Lemke accused him of assaulting her from the time she was 12 years old. Based on a report from ESPN: "Doctors interviewed by Outside the Lines say intravaginal and …."

"Intrarectal treatments have been used for decades to treat medical problems such as pelvic floor dysfunction, Which can occur when muscles on the pelvic floor become weak or tight. The treatments can also be used for interstitial cystitis, a painful bladder syndrome. But those same doctors say the procedures are never performed without gloves, a chaperone in the room and, in the case of a minor, parental consent."
However, some of these ladies say that they have been accused by him in the course of 20 years! ESPN says:
Today, I stood up to the enemy that sexually abused me for four years. Larry Nassar cannot break me. I am a survivor. Thank you to my family, true friends, and coaches for supporting me, and to @Aly_Raisman for being my hero. I stand by all the courageous survivors. #MeToopic.twitter.com/AutB3nCx11— hannah morrow (@hmorrow6) January 19, 2018
"They just kept it quiet, and that is what’s so hard — knowing that if adults were to make the right decision and do the right thing at the right time, that the abuse could have stopped."
It is horrible to know that big names were among the abused ones such as Raisman, Douglas, Jeanette Antolin, Jamie Dantzscher, Rachael Denhollander, Jessica Howard, Kaylee Lorincz, McKayla Maroney, Lindsey Lemke and Kamerin Moore!

The chief public affairs officer for the National Se*ual Violence Resource Center, Kristin Houser, explained: "You go through all these months of keeping a secret, and then the investigation, and waiting on the court proceedings. That whole system is not at all a victim-centred experience or a system that is sensitive to the emotional toll on victims. This is… the one opportunity you get to speak your piece in your own words, unedited, and say the truth about the full picture of how these things impacted your life."
Raisman was one of the victims of this case. She said: "Abuse is not something you just suffer in the moment. It’s something you carry with you for the rest of your life. Even though I’m not there I still feel it. It’s traumatizing, it’s nerve-wracking. This interview right now, I feel like my hands are shaking. It’s not something that’s comfortable to talk about, but I’m determined to make sure the current and future generations are safe. We have to keep talking about it to make sure this never happens again."

Judge Rosemarie Aquilina allowed the victims of Nassar to attend the case. Each of them could also turn to him. Many women took this opportunity and talked about the harm he did to them (they were then between 13 and 18 years old). The accused begged the judge to interrupt these speeches. The judge, pronouncing the verdict, said: "This letter tells me you have not yet owned what you did. You still think somehow you are right, you’re a doctor, that you’re entitled, so you don’t have to listen. That you did ‘treatment.’ I wouldn’t send my dogs to you, sir."
Dr. Nassar also had the opportunity to go to court before issuing the sentence. He apologized and, addressing the women present in the hall, said: "I will carry your words with me for the rest of my days."
There was a cry of women from the room. Judge Aquilina did not believe his remorse. She quoted the letter, which the accused wrote to her. He stated in him that he was "He was a good doctor who was manipulated into pleading guilty" and all allegations were "fabricated".

He also included a saying that women are taking revenge on the person who rejects them. The verdict heard by Nassar assumes the possibility of applying for conditional release after 40 years. Nassar is currently serving a 60-year penalty for child p*rn*graphy. The Nassara scandal was described more than a year ago by the daily Indianapolis Star, according to which in the last 20 years as many as 368 players from clubs affiliated to the national gymnastics federation fell victim to se*ual aggression by doctors and trainers.
Some of the victims were less than 13 years old.
Aquilina said: "As much as it was my honor and privilege to hear the sister survivors, it is my honor and privilege to sentence you. Because, sir, you do not deserve to walk outside of a prison ever again". Judge Aquilina also added: "Your decision to assault was precise, calculated, manipulative, devious, despicable. I don’t have to add words because your survivors have said all of that and I don’t want to repeat it. You can’t give them back their innocence, their youth."
