Larry Nassar receives maximum 60-year sentence by federal judge
McKayla Maroney, mother want Larry Nassar to spend the rest of his life in prison

A MI sports doctor is getting the first of three prison sentences that will likely keep him locked up for decades for assaulting female gymnasts and possessing child pornography.
Former U.S. Olympians McKayla Maroney, Aly Raisman and Gabby Douglas are three of many woman to accuse Nassar of sexual assault and disgusting his abuse as treatments.
Neff also declared Nassar a threat to children.
Nassar, who worked with USA Gymnastics for almost three decades as a trainer and medical coordinator, could receive a minimum sentence of 27 years, but prosecutors want a 60-year prison term.
Shannon Smith, an attorney for Nassar, said he was "devastated" by the sentence and that he would appeal the sentence.
Federal prosecutors, however, had argued for the maximum 60 years, saying Nassar "poses an enormous risk to the community" and quoting one victim who said the 54-year-old "will not hesitate to reoffend" if he's ever freed.
Neff handed the 54-year-old Nassar the maximum sentence on three child pornography charges of receipt of child pornography, possession of child pornography and destruction and concealment of records. Nassar is likely to spend the remainder of his life in prison.
Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette, who is prosecuting Nassar on the state charges in Ingham and Eaton counties, earlier this week asked MSU to release the findings of its internal investigation into the way university officials handled the allegations.
"When I first met Larry Nassar". "Mr. Nassar was, is and, in my view, will continue to be a danger to children.
Dr. Nassar told me that I was receiving 'medically necessary treatment that he had been performing on patients for over 30 years, '" Maroney said in a victim statement to Neff.
Nassar's possession of child pornography emerged after MSU began investigating him in August 2016 after former gymnast Rachael Denhollander reported to MSU police that he sexually assaulted her in 2000, when she was 15.
Maroney's mother, Erin Maroney, says in a letter to the court that abuse changed her daughter.
While many victims have since said they tried to tell others about Nassar's behavior years ago, Denhollander's complaint was the first allegation against Nassar that was believed, prompting dozens of other survivors to come forward with similar stories.
According to ESPN, FBI agents found 37,000 illegal pornographic images on a hard drive in a trash bin when they searched Nassar's home. Toward the end of one clip, the agent testified, Nassar is seen allegedly grabbing a hand of one girl and shoving it into the crotch of another.
The criminal cases against Nassar followed reports previous year in The Indianapolis Star about how USA Gymnastics mishandled complaints about sexual misconduct involving the doctor and coaches.
Some of the videos appeared to show Nassar assaulting young girls in a pool, investigators said.
