The former Team USA doctor is complaining about what he's having to face.
A quote from the former USA Gymnastics doctor who is accused of sexually abusing more than 100 women is going viral today. He's complaining about what he's having to face at his hearing.
A four-day hearing for Larry Nassar began in Michigan earlier this week. At the hearing, several of his victims are speaking about what they went through.
Former USA gymnast Kyle Stephens, for example, spoke on the first day. She courageously fought through emotion while speaking with her mother by her side. Nassar looked at the ground, not facing her.
“I testified to let the world know that you are a repulsive liar,” she said, “and that those treatments were pathetically veiled sexual abuse.”
“Perhaps you have figured it out by now, but little girls don’t stay little girls forever. They grow into strong women that return to destroy your world.”
Stephens was one of many women to speak up at his hearing. They all should be praised for the courage.
Nassar, though, is having a tough time with this. He wrote a letter to the judge, saying he can't mentally handle it.
The 54-year-old former team doctor is already facing 60-year term for child pornography charges. He could face up to 125 more years for the charges stemming from the current hearing.
Thankfully, the judge did not take to Nassar's complaints. Instead, she blasted him in front of everyone.
Good for the judge. You can read Wetzel's full update on the situation here.
