Larry Nassar receives maximum 60-year sentence by federal judge

Not Released

"This experience has been shattering to McKayla", Erin Maroney wrote to the judge.

McKayla and Erin Maroney sent in the eye-opening letters for the judge to read in private, instead of McKayla making her planned appearance in the Grand Rapids, Michigan courtroom to testify against Nassar, the former U.S. gymnastics doctor she says abused her under the guise of medical treatment for six years. Separately, he'll be sentenced in state court in January for molesting gymnasts with his hands. Maroney wrote in her letter to the court.

Maroney and her mother, vocal critics of the USA Gymnastics and the U.S. Olympic Committee, also slammed rules that bar parents from the team training camps. It provides a heartbreaking glimpse into the emotional distress the Maroney family has dealt with because of Nassar's alleged abuse.

McKayla said in her letter that she may never fully recover from the trauma.

"She has transformed from a bubbly, positive, loving, world-class athlete into a young adult who was deeply depressed, at times suicidal. At times, I was unsure whether I would open her bedroom door and find her dead".

This marks the end to one of three criminal cases against Nassar. He'd given me a sleeping pill for the flight, and the next thing I know, I was all alone with him in his hotel room getting a "treatment".

"I. learned a few weeks ago from my daughter that at the world championships in Tokyo, [Nassar] drugged her, made her lay nude on a treatment table, straddled her and digitally penetrated her while rubbing his erect penis against her", Erin wrote. She was only 15 years old. "I thought I was going to die that night". "Her father and I have been living this nightmare for years and until recently we felt hopeless".

"He should never have access to children again", Judge Neff said during court proceedings. Instead, Neff says, she believes this sentencing hearing needs to focus on the federal child pornography crimes, and the victims of that child pornography don't have a voice.

Maroney wants more than that for the guy who seemingly ruined her life.

However, the Premier League heavyweights can only face Barcelona, PSG or Besiktas in the next round. Salah needs only five more goals, to become the top Arab scorer in the Champions League history.

"Larry Nassar deserves to spend the rest of his life in prison", Maroney wrote.

Under federal law, Neff was able to consider the scope of Nassar's crimes, including his sexual assault of young girls by digital penetration during medical visits, to which he also admitted guilt last month.

McKayla, a member of the 2012 "Fierce Five" Olympic squad that competed in London, said on Twitter in October that she was repeatedly molested by Nassar starting when she was 13.

Nassar pleaded guilty to in July to three counts, including possession of child pornography and the destruction and concealment of records and tangible objects.

The woman - Rachael Denhollander, 32, of Louisville - then told her story to the Indianapolis Star, prompting dozens of women, including several former Team USA gymnasts, to come forward with similar allegations.

Maroney and Olympians Aly Raisman and Gabby Douglas have said that they too were assaulted by Nassar, who worked with USA Gymnastics as a trainer and medical coordinator.

"He abused my trust, he abused my body and he left scars on my psyche that may never go away ..."

But those women are only a small part of the scandal: At least 125 women complained to MSU, and almost 150 are involved in a civil lawsuit against Nassar, MSU, Gedderts' Twistars USA Gymnastics Club and others.
