Disgraced US Olympics doctor jailed for 175 years



Ex-US Olympic gymnastics team doctor Larry Nassar has been sentenced to 40 to 175 years after testimony from nearly 160 of his victims.

 
The judge dismissed Nassar's statement as insincere as he attempted to apologise to the court.


Nassar, 54, pleaded guilty to multiple counts of sexual assault against girls and young women, including Olympians.


Judge Rosemarie Aqualina told Nassar during the sentencing he will "be in darkness the rest of his life".

"As much as it was my honour and privilege to hear the sister survivors, it was my honour and privilege to sentence you. Because, sir, you do not deserve to walk outside of a prison ever again," she said.
"You have not owned yet what you did. I wouldn't send my dogs to you, sir," she told the convicted pedophile, adding: "I've just signed your death warrant".
