Larry Nassar attacked, injured hours after arriving at U.S. penitentiary

Just hours after arriving at the U.S. penitentiary in Tucson, Arizona, disgraced former Michigan State and USA Gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar was physically assaulted and injured.

Lawyers say he was assaulted in May not long after being thrown into the prison’s general population, and as a result, Nassar wishes to be re-sentenced by a different judge.

Nassar received a 60-year sentence for child pornography charges, and then another 40-to-175-year prison sentence for criminal sexual conduct charges involving more than 160 women.

As Judge Rosemarie Aquilina put it, Nassar’s death warrant was signed.

According to AP News, Aquilina compared Nassar to the wicked witch in “The Wizard of Oz”

During the seven-day sentencing in January at which at least 169 women and girls provided statements, Ingham County Circuit Judge Rosemarie Aquilina describe Nassar as a “monster” who is “going to wither” like the wicked witch in “The Wizard of Oz.” She said she would allow someone “to do to him what he did to others” if the Constitution allowed.

“Unfortunately, Judge Aquilina’s comments and conducting of the sentencing proceeding appeared to encourage this type of behavior,” Nassar’s lawyers said.

Darn. Such a shame. But if the shoe fits…

Unfortunately for Nassar, people who molest hundreds of athletes over the years don’t have much leverage in the court of law.

Enjoy prison, creep.

      No but he would have gotten a raise and extension at Louisville until the public found out.

    Should have just given him a bullet. No sympathy for someone like him. Where was his sympathy for his victims? He’ll be like Jeffrey Dahmer, will end up dead in prison soon enough.

    Come on people it’s sport’s related information and we all know this site posts about alot of stuff. One thing they need to stay away from is politics. If Matt likes his job it’s the best thing to do.

    Personally, I think execution would have been appropriate, if only the laws would permit it. But I’m not going to take pleasure that someone was beaten up in prison. This is a tacky article to post and out of place here.

    No sympathy for him. And his lawyer is also correct. Judges comments were unprofessional and him being a huge POS doesn’t make it ok.

    I see the guards turning their heads and Pantera’s “5 minutes alone” jamming over the sound system while Bubba slowly closes the cell door behind him.

    This dude is a creep and should never be let out of prison but the amount of people who find joy in someone else’s pain is somewhat disgusting in itself.
