Nassar Receives Third and Final Prison Sentence

08 February 2018

Larry Nassar listens as lead prosecutor Angela Povilaitis makes her closing statements Monday the third and final day of sentencing in Eaton County Court in Charlotte, Mich., where Nassar will be sentenced on three counts of sexual assault.

This comes on top of Nassar's sentence to as much as 175 years almost two weeks ago in a Lansing, Mich., courtroom, for similar crimes in that jurisdiction. He is already serving 60 years in federal prison on child pornography charges.

When asked who else needed to be held accountable at the conclusion of Nassar's sentencing hearing in Ingham County, former Twistars gymnast Lindsey Lemke did not hesitate to single out Geddert.

The other three counts came in Eaton County, where Nassar lived and frequently treated young gymnasts at the youth club Twistars.

A woman who reported Larry Nassar to Michigan State University's gymnastics coach two decades ago says she and other victims are "bound for life". They told the judge how he sexually assaulted them under the guise that he was performing medical treatments.

Larry Nassar left a MI courtroom Monday to live what will likely be the rest of this life behind bars.

Her words follow the recent blistering screed from Judge Rosemarie Anguilina, who labeled Nassar as insincere following his tearful plea for leniency in Ingram County.

Michigan State fired him in September of the same year. The stunning victim impact statements from the "army of survivors" have focused sharply critical attention on the systems of power that protected Nassar for so long.

They blame the silence and inaction of both MSU and USA Gymnastics for enabling Nassar to become perhaps the worst known sexual predator in American sports history.

"You are the most vile, disgusting creature I have ever met. Scum of the earth is too high a title for you", one woman, Katherine Ebert, said on Wednesday, according to Buzzfeed's Mary Ann Georgantopoulos.

Nassar worked for Michigan State and USA Gymnastics, the sport's governing body, which also trains Olympians.

Nesbitt said the department's investigation started before Nassar's sentencing hearings, but she did not know exactly when it began or whether new complaints have changed its scope.

"Society must be protected from Larry Nassar", she said.

Some of the young athletes who confronted Nassar in court said Geddert was physically abusive.

But Nassar's sentencing renewed the attention on the organization's potential failures.
