Olympic gymnastics gold medalist McKayla Maroney and her family are seeking the maximum sentence for former USA Gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar, who is scheduled to be sentenced Thursday after being charged with child porn crimes. A starting point for Ness to consider was between 22-27 years. He also pleaded guilty to 10 state counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct in November, with numerous 125 women who filed police reports against him in those cases saying he used his hands to penetrate them and claimed it was part of a medical procedure, according to ESPN.com.

Shannon Smith, an attorney for Nassar, said he was "devastated" by the sentence and that he would appeal the sentence.

According to court documents, prosecutors have asked for a 60-year sentence for Nassar on the child pornography charges.

"I tried to improve myself", he said. "I really did try to be a good person".

More than 100 civil claims are pending against Michigan State and USA Gymnastics.

Olympic gold medallists McKayla Maroney, Aly Raisman and Gabby Douglas have said they were among the members of the U.S. Gymnastics team assaulted by Nassar when he served as team doctor.

It's the first of three prison sentences for Larry Nassar, who will learn his punishment in state court in January after pleading guilty to using his hands to molest girls at his campus office, his home and at a gymnastics club near Lansing, Michigan, sometimes with parents in the room.


"When I first met Larry Nassar".

Once one of the most respected sports physicians in the country specialising in treating gymnasts, Nassar's swift downfall started last August, when a woman filed a police report alleging Nassar had assaulted her during a medical examination years prior, when she was a 15-year-old gymnast in MI seeking treatment for back pain.

"This experience has shattered McKayla", Erin Maroney wrote of her daughter, one of over 140 women to accuse Nassar of sexual abuse, in letters obtained by ESPN.

After police began their investigation, the Indianapolis Star published Denhollander's story, and MSU fired Nassar soon after in September 2016. "The government said he had 37,000 images of child pornography, including images of children as young as infants", MLive reports.

The drives included images and videos of young girls mostly under the age of 12, including some as young as 6.

The child porn was discovered past year.

"After McKayla spoke with an investigator with USA Gymnastics in July 2015, USA Gymnastics and the USOC kept the knowledge of [Nassar's] status as a child molester secret from Michigan State University after 2015 and even said nothing when he ran for school board in his local school district!"
