Larry Nassar is a serial sexual abuser.

He worked for the USA Gymnastics and was the doctor of many young athletes who he took advantage of. For years, people were made to look the other way, and there are even reports of the company buying the silence of the ones he sexually abused.

He’s a monster, and after the #MeToo movement, many women came forward to share their horror stories. You’ll all be pleased to hear that he was sentenced to 40 to 175 years in federal prison.
