Judge Rosemarie Aquilina today sentenced Larry Nassar to 40-175 years in prison for his crimes. More than 150 women who were abused by the former US Gymnastics doctor as children offered victim impact statements before Aquilina announced her decision.
We applaud Aquilina for giving Nassar a lengthy prison term. When serial predators like the former doctor are given a long time behind bars, victims everywhere breathe a sigh of relief, knowing that a dangerous criminal will not be able to hurt another child while incarcerated.
