Following a seven day hearing, which included accounts from 156 of his victims, the verdict came today.

“You do not deserve to walk outside of a prison ever again,” Judge Rosemarie Aquilina said in the Ingham County, Michigan, courtroom.

“I signed your death warrant,” she added.

Nassar will spend the rest of his life in prison and will never see a normal day again. This was a completely justified verdict and Nassar deserves the sentence.
