In what has been one of the biggest scandals in USA olympic sports, it has finally come to an end. Jerry Nassar, who was the Team USA women’s gymnastics doctor was sentenced to 175 years in prison because of his sexual abuse of many women gymnasts during his time with the team.
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.
