Judge says 265 have come forward as Larry Nassar victims


A Michigan judge said 265 people have come forward with allegations of sexual assault against former U.S. Gymnastics Olympic doctor Larry Nassar.

Judge Janice Cunningham has set aside several days for at least 65 of those victims to confront the disgraced doctor in court on Wednesday for another sentencing hearing.

Nassar is facing an additional prison sentence — his third — for molesting gymnasts at Lansing-area gymnastics club Twistars, which was run by 2012 Olympic coach John Geddert.

Regardless of the latest hearing’s outcome, Nassar is slated to spend the life his behind bars.

The former Michigan State University doctor earlier this month listened to more than 150 women offering gut-wrenching testimony of abuse over an emotional seven-day sentencing hearing earlier this month.

Judge Rosemarie Aquilina at its end, sentenced Nassar to between 40 and 175 years behind bars.

In December he was separately sentenced to 60 years in prison on child porn charges.
