AVRUPA-Disgraced Team USA Gymnastics doctor sentenced to 175 years for sexual abuse. Larry Nassar has admitted to molesting some of the nation's top female gymnasts, including Olympic champions. He is already serving a 60-year sentence in federal prison for child pornography convictions.Longtime USA Gymnastics team doctor Larry Nassar was sentenced on Wednesday to 40 to 175 years in prison for sexually abusing scores of female gymnasts under the guise of medical treatment. The sentence followed an extraordinary seven-day hearing that saw scores of Larry Nassar's victims confront him face-to-face in a Michigan courtroom.

"I've just signed your death warrant," Ingham County Circuit Court Judge Rosemarie Aquilina told Nassar in imposing the penalty.

"It is my honor and privilege to sentence you. You do not deserve to walk outside a prison ever again. You have done nothing to control those urges and anywhere you walk, destruction will occur to those most vulnerable."
