HeadlineDec 08, 2017

Former USA Gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar has been sentenced to 60 years in prison for possessing tens of thousands of images of child pornography, including images of infants. Nassar has also admitted to sexually assaulting women and children, and is awaiting sentencing in two separate trials. Dozens of female athletes, including members of the U.S. Olympic gymnastics team, have accused him of penetrating their vaginas with his fingers and covering up the abuse by pretending it was part of a medical treatment.
