Whitmer calls for investigation into MSU's handling of matters involving Nassar

Aly Raisman Sexual Assault- Lede

Nassar was the team physician for the Michigan State University gymnastics and women's crew teams, as well as an associate professor at MSU's College of Osteopathic Medicine.

Neff said Nassar "should never again have access to children".

The 54-year-old, facing sentencing next month on separate sexual assault charges, pleaded guilty in July to possessing thousands of images and videos of child pornography depicting children as young as infants between 2003 and 2016.

In a court filing, defense lawyers said Nassar "deeply regrets the pain that he has caused the community".

"I'm going to take every day of your sentence to try to better myself", the Journal quoted him as telling the judge.

It's the first of three prison sentences for Larry Nassar, who will learn his punishment in state court in January after pleading guilty to using his hands to molest girls at his campus office, his home and at a gymnastics club near Lansing, Michigan, sometimes with parents in the room. Nassar faces at least 25 years in prison in the other cases.

His case was part of a wide-ranging scandal which forced the resignation of USA Gymnastics chief Steve Penny in March. "He needs to be behind bars so he will never prey upon another child", Olympic gold medallist McKayla Maroney wrote in a victim impact statement before Thursday's sentencing.

Athletes at Michigan State also accused Nassar of assault. "Until we understand the flaws in their systems, we can't be sure something like this won't happen again". They say both institutions either ignored or failed to effectively investigate sexual assault complaints against Nassar that date back 20-years.

And because of that, there's no physical report available for Schuette, who requested a copy of the findings earlier this week, to review, Patrick Fitzgerald, a Chicago-based attorney who's representing the university and who conducted the review, told Schuette in a letter. He has also been named in multiple civil lawsuits.
