Gymnastics Doctor To Return To Court For Another Sentence

From the Associated Press — The sports doctor accused of sexually assaulting more than 150 women and girls will be confronted again this week by scores of victims. Larry Nassar faces another prison sentence for molesting gymnasts, this time at an elite Michigan club run by an Olympic coach. Judge Janice Cunningham set aside three days for roughly 60 people who want to confront Nassar or have their statement read in court. The event could unfold much the same as a hearing last week in another county that ended with Nassar getting sentenced to 40 to 175 years in prison. The practice of allowing accusers to speak even if they are not tied directly to a case has raised questions about fairness. But Nassar agreed to allow the statements as part of a guilty plea.
