Judge slams Larry Nassar for complaint about listening to victims' stories

Judge slams Larry Nassar for complaint about listening to victims' stories

"Aquilina is allowing them all to talk", Nassar wrote in a lengthy handwritten letter to the court.

Larry Nassar's request to be spared hearing the pain he has inflicted on his victims has been denied.

"I didn't orchestrate this, you did by your actions and your guilty plea", Aquilina told Nassar. "A simple fact is this: If MSU, USA Gymnastics, and the US Olympic committee had paid attention to any of the red flags in Larry Nassar's behavior, I would have never met him".

Almost 100 victims were expected to address the court during the four-day sentencing hearing for 54-year-old Nassar.

We'll have live reports from Lansing on later editions of FOX 17 News.

It's unclear if Maroney plans to speak during Nassar's sentencing.

"I mean, every single time they release a statement, it's basically the same thing - saying they care and they're ... welcome to work with their athletes, but they don't mean it", Raisman said.

Arsene Wenger hopeful Jack Wilshere will sign a new contract
The 26-year-old has emerged as one of Arsenal's only positives in an otherwise disappointing season for the north London side. The Gunners pair are out-of-contract next summer, and can now talk to clubs overseas over a free move in July.

Prosecutors expect 98 women to speak or submit written statements about the abuse suffered at the hands of Larry Nassar during his four-day sentencing hearing for criminal sexual conduct.

In joining other athletes who reported abuse by Nassar, Biles said in a statement on Twitter on Monday that the thought of returning to the Karolyi Ranch was painful.

Nassar (54) has pleaded guilty to a total of 10 counts of criminal sexual conduct in two counties in MI, and could face life in prison.

The sentencing hearing began at 9 on Tuesday morning and is set to run through Thursday afternoon. In essence, it means USA Gymnastics, which fired Nassar amid dozens of abuse allegations against the doctor, will waive $100,000 fines that would have been issued to Maroney had she spoken publicly about Nassar's activity.

Maroney's statement is one of almost a hundred that were submitted and read in court over the last few days. He was sentenced to 60 years in federal court on child pornography charges in December.

McKayla, 21 is a United States gymnast and was a member of the gold medalist team of U.S. in 2012 at the Summer Olympics.
