MI judge dismisses complaints made by Larry Nassar about his sentencing hearing

Serial sexual abuser Larry Nassar accused the judge presiding over his case of conducting a "four-day sentencing media circus" for her own benefit, according to a letter read aloud in court Thursday. I am here, along with the other women, to tell you your days of manipulation are over.

Her daughter simply responded, "I love you mom".

Nassar was sentenced last month to 60 years in prison on federal child pornography charges and is set to be sentenced this week in MI after pleading guilty to additional counts of criminal sexual conduct related to allegations he assaulted girls under the guise of medical treatment.

The judge consoled the 29 women and girls who spoke or had their statements read on Tuesday, saying they should not blame themselves.

Some of the victims tried to speak up for years, but the adults who should have protected them never listened.

Nassar has sat through the proceedings with his head bowed, not making eye contact with the victims.

After each statement, Aquilina consoles and applauds the accuser, heaping scorn on Nassar in the process. The first was House Speaker Tom Leonard, an MSU alumnus who called for her ouster in December.

"You are no longer a doctor", she told Nassar.

Kyle Stephens, the only one Nassar allegedly abused outside of his practice, told the court that he started abusing her when she was just six years old.

"After thinking about it and taking time to cope with facing this fear of mine, I made a decision to finally put a name to it", she said.

Nassar speaks to his attorney Shannon Smith on Thursday.

"Aquilina is allowing them all to talk", he wrote. Nassar said the judge placed him in the witness box to face the women speaking out against him so that cameras would also be pointed in her direction.

"I have to say, this isn't worth the paper it's written on", Aquilina said about Nassar's letter. "Spending four or five days listening to them is significantly minor considering the hours of pleasure you had at their expense and ruining their lives". Nassar is serving a 60-year prison after pleading guilty in July to child pornography charges in federal court.
