Fifty-Seven More Victims Will Testify Against Nassar At Court
Fifty-seven more victims are expected to testify against disgraced former USA Gymnastics team doctor Larry Nassar in court Wednesday.
Nassar, who is already sentenced to 60 years in prison for child pornography and 40 to 175 years in prison for criminal sexual conduct, will hear from 57 more victims, reported CNN. Nassar previously was at court in Michigan where over 150 women delivered victim impact statements.
The doctor worked at Twistars, a gymnastics club in Michigan, and was also formerly employed by Michigan State University.
Nassar worked alongside gymnastics coach John Geddard at Twistars. Geddard, who coached the 2012 Olympic women’s gymnastics team, was suspended by Team USA Jan. 23.
Geddard coached gymnast Aly Raisman, an Olympic gold medalist and victim of Nassar.
Some of attorney Mick Grewal’s clients were inspired by the women who have already spoken up, the Chicago Tribune reported Wednesday. Eleven of his clients have signed up to give statements on Nassar.
“Now they’re at a point in their healing process where they want to confront Larry, and they want to show the world that they are survivors and they are strong and they are part of this movement,” Grewal said.
The court has set aside three days to give victims the opportunity to speak.
