Former USA Gymnastics and Michigan State University doctor Larry Nassar is facing a sentencing hearing in Eaton County, Michigan beginning Wednesday morning, after he pleaded guilty to three counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct. Right now, up to 65 women are expected to provide victim impact statements, but that number could increase. Watch the hearing live in the player above.
Recently, Nassar was sentenced to between 40 and 175 years in prison after pleading guilty to seven other counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct in Ingham County. Originally, approximately 80 victim impact statements were expected at the sentencing hearing in that case, but that number increased to nearly 160 as more and more women were emboldened to step forward. Those who provided statements included Olympic gymnasts Aly Raisman, Jamie Dantzscher, and Jordyn Wieber.
Nassar was also already sentenced to 60 years in prison in a federal child pornography case.
