Dr. Larry Nassar

Former gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar, accused by dozens of women of sexual abuse, has been sentenced to serve 60 years in prison for possessing child pornography. 

Federal Judge Janet Neff handed down the sentence Thursday in Grand Rapids, saying Nassar should "never again have access to children. 

The 60 year prison sentence is not the end. In January, Nassar will be sentenced to molesting gymnasts with his hands  under the guise of providing treatment.

He has pled guilty. 

A Michigan sports doctor who admits he molested gymnasts and kept a staggering collection of child pornography is getting the first of three prison sentences that will likely keep him locked up for decades. Larry Nassar is returning to federal court Thursday in Grand Rapids, Michigan, for his pornography sentence.

USA Gymnastics

A former Michigan State University and USA Gymnastics doctor accused of molesting seven girls has pleaded guilty to first-degree criminal sexual conduct and faces at least 25 years in prison.

Dr. Larry Nassar entered the plea Wednesday in a Michigan courtroom. Some of his accusers attended the packed hearing.

Nassar was charged with molesting the girls under the guise of treatment at his home and a campus clinic. All but one was a gymnast.

A plea deal calls for a minimum prison sentence of 25 years. But the judge could go higher and set the minimum at 40 years.

A plea deal could be in the works for a former doctor at Michigan State University and USA Gymnastics charged in federal court with obtaining and possessing child pornography. Documents obtained by The Detroit News and the Lansing State Journal show a guilty plea has been signed by 53-year-old Dr. Larry Nassar. A formal plea agreement hasn't been filed with the court. 

An outspoken former gymnast is expected to testify at a key hearing in a sexual assault case against a Michigan sports doctor. Dr. Larry Nassar is appearing in court near Lansing, Michigan, on Friday for a hearing that will determine if there's enough evidence to send him to trial. He's charged with sexually assaulting seven young gymnasts whom he was treating for a variety of injuries at his Michigan State University clinic. 

Records show a Michigan State University doctor resigned in January after learning the school was considering her termination because she didn't disclose that USA Gymnastics was investigating Dr. Larry Nassar.

The Lansing State Journal reports that documents obtained from Brooke Lemmen's personnel file through the Freedom of Information Act reveal she also removed patient records at Nassar's request.

Nassar was a Michigan State and USA Gymnastics sports doctor.
