Larry Nassar fined, has medical license permanently revoked
As if there was ever any doubt, the medical license of disgraced former USA Gymnastics and Michigan State University physician Larry Nassar has officially been revoked by a Michigan regulatory agency. This revocation took place last Friday, April 6th.
Nassar was also fined $1 million. He violated four violations of the state's public health code, and he was fined $250,000 for each of those violations.
Nassar, 54, is currently serving prison time at United States Penitentiary Tucson, which is a maximum-security federal prison in Tucson, Arizona. He is serving the first of three lengthy prison sentences which will undoubtedly keep him locked up for life.
Nassar has just begun serving his 60-year federal prison sentence, which was handed down in December of 2017. He was given this 60-year sentence after being charged with three counts of child pornography.
The second of Nassar's three prison sentences is the first of two state prison sentences. This sentence is set to keep him locked up for between an additional 40 and 175 years. He was given this sentence in January of 2018 after being charged with seven counts of sexual assault.
The odds of him reaching this sentence are slim, but even if he does end up defying those odds, he will not outlive his second sentence and first of two state prison sentences.
Finally, the third of Nassar's three prison sentences is his second of two state prison sentences. This sentence is set to keep him locked up for between an additional 40 and 125 years. He was given this sentence in February of 2017 after being charged with three more counts of sexual assault.
Nassar sexually assaulted athletes, mostly gymnasts, under the guise of medical treatment for roughly two decades. His first known accuser, Larissa Boyce, came forward with accusations against him in 1997.
Nassar was not arrested until December of 2016, which was three months after Rachael Denhollander became the first person to publicly accuse him of sexual assault when she shared her story with the Indianapolis Star about three months earlier.
The 54-year-old disgraced former doctor has been accused of sexually assaulting more than 260 people, with many of them being women. So far, one male, Jacob Moore, has accused him of sexual assault.
Among those who have accused Nassar of sexual assault are five of the eight members of the 2012 United States Olympic women's gymnastics team and/or the 2016 United States Olympic women's gymnastics team.
Those five members, listed in order of when they accused Nassar of sexual assault, are McKayla Maroney (2012 Olympics), Aly Raisman (2012 and 2016 Olympics), Gabby Douglas (2012 and 2016 Olympics), Simone Biles (2016 Olympics) and Jordyn Wieber (2012 Olympics).
