Following days of victim impact statements before a Michigan judge, former Olympic gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar was sentenced today to 40 to 175 years in prison for molesting young female athletes, NBC News reports. Nassar pleaded guilty to seven counts of first-degree criminal sexual misconduct last year, and has already been sentenced to 60 years in federal prison for possession of child pornography. He was forced to listen to 156 of his accusers gave statements in Judge Rosemarie Aquilina’s courtroom over seven days before hearing the sentencing. "You do not deserve to walk outside of a prison ever again," Aquilina said to Nassar. “I just signed your death warrant.”
