Transcript for Larry Nassar sentenced to up to 175 years in prison
Justice was finally served yesterday. U.S. Gymnastics and Michigan state Dr. Larry Nassar who sexually abused more than 150 girls over two decades was sentenced to 40 to 175 years in prison. He's already 60. So I don't think he's going to make it. And the judge was not buying Nassar's apology. Take a look. There are no words to describe the depth and braemt of how sorry I am for what has occurred. You do not deserve to walk outside of a prison ever again. I've just fined your death warrant. She just signed his death warrant. That's interesting. Does that mean someone is going to kill him in jail? Because a lot of the child molesters don't do well in prison. One of the victims was olympic gold medal winner Aly raisman and some girls told school officials and coaches about the abuse who didn't do anything to stop it. How many times are we hearing this now? We had this conversation about this aiding and abetting in a certain way or not reporting. Yeah. This is even worse. I mean, these are children. There should be mandatory reporters and that's what gets me. When you send your children to school, you expect them to be protected by those adults that are there and apparently since 1997 when he was working at Michigan state, many, many, girls went to the university and complained and while there was an investigation nothing happened. I'm just -- when are people going to stand up? Now. A lot of these cases where the institution is protected over the individual child and the catholic church was like that. We're going to protect the church at the expense of these kids. Msu. She apologized and she's a woman who apologized and we were having conversations beforehand, it's interesting to me maybe this is gender bias but as a woman if a woman came to me, I would believe them even before the scandal. I wouldn't be like are you sure kwlour whatever with the doctor. People are still not believing. It's terrible and depressing. I don't mean this to sound awful. But survivor Kyle Stevens of all the testimonies she said little girls don't stay little forever, they turn into strong women that return to destroy your world. And that's the message going forward. If pigs like this think they're going to get away with it -- The damage is enormous to these children and any child who is abused never gets over it. Imagine the stress it takes to compete at that level and they had this to deal with in the back of their head. Where were the parents? I don't know if the parents knew. The judge said you are no longer victims, you are survivors and Aly raisman said we are an army of survivors. Think how much has changed in 18 or 19 months when, you know, I unfortunately had to jump off a cliff by myself and survivor was my theme song. And look now, to hear other women say we're an army of survivors. And we're coming forward. Sorry. Had this hpened now, this god forbid this was happening to olympic gymnasts now do you think they would come forward today, would it be different? Absolutely. There's a really reckoning going on. A female judge, we need more of them, she allowed every single woman to go there and speak her truth even when this doctor made a motion to the court and said he didn't want to hear anymore because it was distressful for him. He's disgusting this guy. I read in his letter that hell hath no fury like a woman scorned talked about these kids, what a pig. There were certain people like this judge is so inappropriate. She's being too harsh on him. I saw that. You saw that? Are you kidding me. People need to be vigilant. After the catholic church scandal this now came up and that was a few years ago already and people should have known better and they still keep quiet and let these things go on. It's ever vigilant. It was poetic justice because there were three female judges dealing with this case. The prosecutor was a female. He had to stand there and look at all these women in power. In power. He's 54. Not 60. So even more years to suffer.
