Over 150 women have accused former USA Gymnastics and Michigan State University doctor Larry Nassar of sexual abuse, and over 100 of them are expected to read victim statements at his sentencing hearing that began January 16 at a court in Ingham County, Michigan.

Circuit Court Judge Rosemarie Aquilina has allowed any and all victims and their parents to read statements during the sentencing. The victims, or survivors, have courageously recounted the horrific acts they suffered at the hands of Nassar. Judge Aquilina has also responded personally to every single survivor who has spoken.



As the sentencing has continued, more survivors have been added to the list to speak, and many have chosen to speak publicly, agreeing for their names to be shared in the press.



Aly Raisman has stated that she will not attend the sentencing, as it would be too traumatic for her. Maggie Nichols also chose not to attend, but did submit a victim statement which her mother Gina read. You can listen to Gina's statement here

Besides the survivors, the court has also heard from mothers, fathers, and even a coach, all of whom have addressed Nassar. Many have also addressed USAG and MSU in their statements, holding them accountable for the abuse as well.



Nassar pleaded guilty to 10 counts of first-degree criminal sexual abuse for molesting girls and women under the guise of medical treatment. Prosecutors have asked for 40 to 125 years in jail. Nassar was already sentenced to 60 years in federal prison on child pornography charges.

Following the second day of the sentencing, 50 victim statements had been read. You can follow a live stream of the sentencing online.
