After a remarkable hearing that featured gut-wrenching statements from 156 of his accusers and an apology that the judge said rang hollow, former Olympic gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar was sentenced Wednesday to 40 to 175 years in prison for molesting young girls under the guise of treatment.

"You do not deserve to walk outside of a prison ever again," Judge Rosemarie Aquilina said in the Ingham County, Michigan, courtroom where Nassar was forced to listen to victims for seven days before learning his fate.

"I just signed your death warrant," she added.

The dude's absolute scum but holy f*ck, was that a woefully terrible judge. All her over-the-top unprofessional grandstanding and ill-conceived theatrics did is help to set the nonce up for a strong appeal. What a joke.

The guy deserves to be squashed like a bug for sure but yeah, the judge's monologue was pretty unprofessional. I guess she skipped the lectures on grandstanding and impartial judgement during her time in law school. The news feed I was watching picked up on the "I just signed your death warrant" line immediately.

Am I seeing this? Why is the judge taking the heat over this monster. She didn't comment about Nasser's culture and family being to blame for his crime or call Nasser a thug or an animal.

whatever.

I love how Doctor Larry complained that it was unfair and unduly stressful for him to have to sit there and listen to victim impact statements... kind of like how it was unfair and unduly stressful for his victims to have to sit there while he physically assaulted them and masturbated.

 

why the f/ck do we do this?

if you're convicted of dealing in child pornography and raping children we shouldn't make you listen to victim impact statements. we should put a f/cking bullet inside of your brain and throw your carcass into an unmarked ditch.

I don't think she was unprofessional at all, and fail to see how this could improve his appeal chances. This was a sentence hearing, not judging whether or not he was innocent. He plead guilty, the judge gave him his sentence, all done. The judge is then free to express the reasons why said piece of scum was given said sentence, and she did. She then went to lengths to explain how she tried to be as fair as possible with this sentencing, asking him if he would wish to remove his guilty plea and go to trial, and then explaining that she had expected and wished it would go to trial because at first she actually considered that there may be some merit to the "medical treatment" angle he was using, as she's worked with doctors in the past and know that there's always things that are controversial. And that there may be some reasonable doubt in case he could prove it.

 

But then the piece of sh*t plead guilty, which meant he knew his medical treatment angle was garbage. And even worse, wrote a letter after pleading guilty about feeling threatened and that he shouldn't sit the hearing because he was traumatized and that, in his own friggin words, hell hath no fury like a woman scorned. The piece of sh*t actually put that, and blamed everyone for his hardship. The judge then explained that having read his letter, that it was obvious he had learned nothing, that he owned up to nothing, and that he belonged in jail.

 

She was incredibly impartial in the statement, all things considered. It was hundreds of girls this piece of human garbage f*cked up with. He deserved far, far worse.

Hard to get much more pathetic than this nonce. The self-righteous moaning in his letter is unreal, and on top of all he doesn't even have the simple guts to go through the victims' statements. "Emotional stress", lmao, he's one to claim that. Good on the judge to give him the treatment he deserves.

judge is a f*cking legend. she could have punched him in the jaw then and there and it wouldn't help his appeal - no one in their right mind is touching his case ever again, not even with a ten foot pole.

That's not quite how this works. Judges are afforded discretion within sentencing guidelines, that does not mean they can just sentence willy-nilly and not have it overturned later on. You're correct in saying he can't appeal his plea, but it does not mean he can't appeal his sentence. Same as he is doing with his federal sentence. 

 

Furthermore you seem to be leaving out the parts where the judge lamented her inability to exact extra-judicial punishment, spoke against the 8th amendment prohibition on cruel and unusual punishment, and more or less mused about him being gang-raped in prison. Regardless of how much you may personally agree with these remarks. That certainly does not sound "incredibly impartial" to me. This isn't Judge Judy, this is a professional courtroom and such comments have no place there. It's absolutely vital that in cases that are this high-profile there isn't as much as a modicum of controversy as to the procedural side of things. Not only to limit grounds for a possible appeal, but also in the interest of justice as a whole. Justice is supposed to be impartial and above petty appeals to emotion and self-serving theatrics irrespective of who is on the docket. 

 

Am I seeing this? Why is the judge taking the heat over this monster. She didn't comment about Nasser's culture and family being to blame for his crime or call Nasser a thug or an animal.

 

The two aren't mutually exclusive. You can find the dude to be a garbage human being and still take issue with his sentencing descending into near kangaroo-court levels of absurdity.

which never actually happens...

he'll be in protective custody and separated from general population for his safety. he'll get 3 hot meals a day and live out his life in relative peace and quiet.

 

you've got child-rapist Jared from Subway resting comfortable behind bars. the first week he was in prison some guy took a swing at him and he's been protected ever since. I don't believe in Hell so I don't believe these people will be punished in the afterlife.

 

we should f/cking punish them while we've got our hands on them...

PC or ad seg isn't like general population. Sure, he'll be separated and protected but in order to facilitate that, they will need to limit his privileges and freedom of movement around the facility. Unless they have an entire block for segregated offenders, he'll be stuck in a cell for 23 hours per day with limited opportunity for exercise, showering or social contact. That could drive any of us insane, especially for the amount of time he'll have to do. There's some justice in that, I suppose.

Why? What possible purpose does it serve? If you don't believe in afterlife, you have to concede that life we live is all we have. And vendettas do more harm than good to society. With exception of few cases, where perpetrator can be rehabilitated, the only purpose of harsh sentence is to segregate trash from community. Life behind bars does that just fine. And beyond making sure criminals are caught, making punishments harder is known not to be a deterrent.

Acting on impulse, instead of reason, is why most of that scum is scum. If you want to live in a world that is better, you have to be better. And that incudes not hurting people just to hurt people, no matter how much you feel they deserve it.

The judge in this case definitely seems to take virtue-signalling over professionalism as a priority. It honestly wouldn't shock me if during her earlier legal career she was a defence attorney protecting pieces of sh*t like this Nassar prick.

so now the taxpayer is paying to support a child molester. 3 hots and a cot. TV and movies. his little goddamn cupcake he gets twice a year for his birthday and on Xmas. that's so much better than he deserves.
 
there's no rehabilition for these people.
I don't want to pay for their life sentence. bullet + ditch = win.
 

making punishments harder is known not to be a deterrent.

I know it's not a deterrent.
but that was never the point...

so I'll be their judge if I so choose.
 
who said anything about "hurt" for the sake of hurt?
I want to put a f/cking bullet in his brain and toss him into an unmarked ditch. there's no pain in that.

I don't like referring to these young ladies as Victims, I like to refer to them as Heroes for having the courage to stand up to this vile creature and risk being ostracized by the Gymnastics community and their peers as we've seen happen so many times when a girl comes forward and accuses someone in a great deal of power of sexual abuse instead of listening to the victims they blame them.

 

He actually had the balls to write a SIX PAGE letter to Judge Aquilina asking the Judge if he could be excused from attending the proceedings because the states these girls were reading saying... "listening to impact statements is detrimental to his mental health. She wants me to sit in the witness box next to her for all four days so the media cameras will be directed toward her"

 

Talk about having a big ego with zero remorse for what he did, The only thing he's Sorry about is he got caught and if it hadn't been for his arrest on Child Porn I don't think he would've been arrested for these sexual assaults at least not untll the #MeToo movement started then I am sure someone would have come forward

 

She absolutely Eviscerated him in a 10 minute rant ending with "Spending four or five days listening to them is significantly minor considering the hours of pleasure you’ve had at their expense"

 

 

                              

 

 

One of the young ladies who have come forward have said that Nassar even assaulted her IN FRONT of an USA Gymnastic Executive which makes me wonder how much knowledge did/does U.S.A Gymnastic have and how far did they go in covering it up.

 

If it comes out that even one person at U.S.A Gymnastic had knowledge of abuse allegations then there will be hell to pay, Just look at Jerry Sandusky and Joe Paterno, Joe Paterno knew that Sandusky was sexually assaulting young boys but he kept his mouth shut and kept Sandusky free to sexually assault young boys for years and years before he was finally exposed and then it came out that Joe had knowledge but didn't report it. 

 

Joe wasn't the only one who knew either, James Calhoun, a janitor at Penn State, tells his supervisor and another janitor that he saw Sandusky sexually abusing a young boy in the Lasch Building showers. No one reports the incident to university officials or law enforcement.

 

Graduate Assistant Mike McQueary tells Coach Joe Paterno that on March 1, 2002, he witnessed Sandusky sexually abusing a 10-year-old boy in the Lasch Building showers. (On May 7, 2012, prosecutors file court documents to change the date of the assault to on or around February 9, 2001.

 

Paterno finally reports the incident to Athletic Director Tim Curley. Later, McQueary meets with Curley and Senior Vice President for Finance and Business Gary Schultz. McQueary testifies that he told Curley and Schultz that he saw Sandusky and the boy engaged in anal sex; Curley and Schultz testify they were not told of any such allegation. No law enforcement investigation is launched.

 

Penn State was ultimately sued by Sandusky Victims in which they reached a settlement so it never went to court.

 

So if USA Gymnastic Executives and Board Of Trustees are smart they will take a page from those dark days at Penn State and start the progress of making amends and compensation for the victims

 
If not then the U.S.A Gymnastics team of Lawyers better be ready to defend their slimeball clients and try to explain why they're not at fault and why they shouldn't be making some big payouts.
 
Now that he's been convicted and sentenced and it's revealed the extend & length USA Gymnastics and Nasser went to cover up this abuse, U.S.A Gymnastics are 100% liable and any lawsuit brought against them by the victims will result in hefty payouts if it goes to trial in civil court
 
So the U.S.A Gymnastics Board Of Trustees would be smart to get ahead of this issue a public and then write a private apology to each and every victim individually and offer them at least a 7 figure compensation, It won't ever make them whole again but it will show the victims and the public that they are truly sorry for not taking action against Nassar when the first abuse allegations came out years ago.

Okay well even if you feel that someone can be brutalised as rewenge for past crimes, surely we have to maintain certain standards and can't throw them aside because of our emotional whims? 

 

Honestly it's pretty disturbing how people think the legal system is supposed to hand down Divine Retribution and isn't a slapped together attempt to remove criminals (and 'subversive elements' historically) from broader society. Judges and prosecutors represent state power, not you and yours.

I just think it's funny that in this situation people are getting on their high horse over the judge showing emotion but by all means, continue being the righteous, moralistic person you wish to be.

Well my point was that we need to protect ourselves from the legal system by pressuring it to maintain standards, not that you're an arsehole so spare me the whining about how I think I'm better than you. 

 

The issue isn't her being 'emotional' the issue is a court degrading into spectacle like "We've got you now, criminal scum, prepare to suffer" and people cheering it on like they'll never be on the other side of the state's wrath.

As a so-called "centrist", these arguments on both sides are making my head spin. As far as I see it, the language used by the judge was inappropriate in a room where law and order is enforced and a sense of responsibility is bestowed upon the magistrate. However, I can't help but feel naturally compelled to wish an unpleasant death on this f*cking filthy individual since a guilty verdict was delivered. I think the way the overwhelming majority of judges conduct themselves in cases like this should be maintained - in that being professional, despite whatever understable angry emotions may arise, should be at the forefront of a functioning society. Isn't that progressivism?

I'd personally love to skin this c*nt's balls whilst forcing him to listen to Coldplay, but the bigger picture is the bigger picture.

Not for nothing, but this is about as 'new-wave liberalism' as I'm going to get.

To be honest I don't really care how "unprofessional" the judge was, fact of the matter is that it added insult to injury towards the scum who already looked devastated that he was about to receive an inevitable lifetime sentence and the fact that his past victims were speaking out right in front of him. Good on her. Nobody whose put such a large amount of people through such misery and grief deserve to be treated like a human being.
