Day 6 of shocking victim impact statements before sentencing for Dr. Larry Nassar continues. Courtroom testimonies are being watched by hundreds of thousands of people nationwide.
A damning Detroit News story alleges at least 14 Michigan State representatives — athletic trainers, assistant coaches, a university police detective and an official who is now MSU’s assistant general counsel — were warned about Nassar in the two decades before his arrest. The women testifying in Nassar’s sentencing hearing are alleging the same.
Where was the outrage then?
“Your abuse started 30 years ago,” Raisman read to Nassar in her incredibly powerful impact statement last week. “But that’s just the first reported incident we know of. If over these many years, just one adult listened and had the courage and character to act, this tragedy could have been avoided.”
