Larry Nassar Begs Judge to Stop Witness Statements Because It’s Bad For His Mental Health
I think I’ve heard it all now. A child molester can’t fathom to hear his victims vent to him about what he did to them, and he has the nerve to complain about his health being affected.
Convicted sexual predator Larry Nassar wrote a letter to the court begging to end the witness statements because it was bad for his health, calling the whole thing a “media circus” that was “detrimental to his mental health.”
The judge ripped him a new one.
Judge Rosemarie Aquilina had this to say to the disgraced USA Gymnastics doctor:
“I have to say, this isn’t worth the paper it’s written on,” the circuit court judge said Thursday. “There’s no truth in here. It’s delusional. …
“You may find it harsh that you are here listening. But nothing is as harsh as what your victims endured for thousands of hours at your hands.”
“I didn’t orchestrate this, you did,” she told Nassar.
“Spending four or five days listening to them is significantly minor considering the hours of pleasure you’ve had at their expense and ruining their lives.”
Nassar pleaded guilty to 10 counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct. In his plea deal, he agreed to hear the witness statements.
Out of the 135 women who have accused Nassar of abusing them, over 100 of them plan on addressing him about his actions. Olympic Gold medalist McKayla Maroney confronted him on Thursday
