Dateline NBC hourlong special "Silent No More" aired Sunday night at 7:00 pm ET, and there are several key takeaways regarding the Larry Nassar sexual assault scandal, the topic of the documentary, that stemmed from this feature.

Several interviews conducted by Savannah Guthrie were shown on the show. She interviewed two Olympic gymnasts, the mother of a gymnast, and two legendary gymnastics coaches.

Nassar, the 54-year-old disgraced former USA Gymnastics and Michigan State University physician who is now behind bars, was finally arrested in December of 2016 after sexually assaulting more than 260 people, mostly female gymnasts, under the guise of medical treatment for roughly two decades.

He was sentenced to 60 years in federal prison this past December on three child pornography charges before being sentenced to between 40 and 175 years in state prison and between an additional 40 and 125 more years in state prison in January and February on seven and three sexual assault charges, respectively.

Here are five takeaways from this documentary.
