Larry Nassar, Disgraced USA Gymnastics Doctor, Assaulted at Arizona Prison

Updated On 26 Jul, 2018 Published On

Larry Nassar is serving his sentence for sexual assault and child pornography charges at the Arizona prison and there the disgraced USA Gymnastics was assaulted by inmates.

According to court documents obtained, the Michigan State doctor was attacked “within a few hours of being placed in general population” in late May.

As per the report, the documents were filed by Larry and his attorneys in Ingham County Circuit Court, Michigan on Tuesday, July 24.

Larry's lawyers are partially blaming the incident on Judge Rosemarie Aquilina who sentenced 54-year old in January to up to 175 years in prison.

The documents read,

The judge allowed the proceedings to devolve into a free-for-all, in which speakers were given free reign to denigrate the defendant, sometimes in profane terms; to wish physically harm upon the defendant; to disparage and ridicule his constitutional rights, including his right to counsel; to accuse entities and institutions of wrongdoing; and even to accuse uncharged individuals of wrongdoing and crimes, including calling for their incarceration or other punishment. Unfortunately, Judge Aquilina’s comments and conducting of the sentencing proceeding appeared to encourage this type of behavior.

As previously reported, more than 200 women accused Larry of sexual abuse dating since 1997.

On July 18, about 150 of survivors of Larry, including former gymnast Sarah Klein, softball player Tiffany Thomas Lopez and Olympian Aly Raisman, accepted the Arthur Ashe Courage Award at the 2018 ESPY Awards together.

On the stage at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angelas, Aly said at the time,

1997, 1998, 1999, 2000, 2004, 2011, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016. These were the years we spoke up about Larry Nassar’s abuse. All those years we were told, ‘You are wrong. You misunderstood. He’s a doctor. It’s OK. Don’t worry, we’ve got it covered. Be careful. There are risks involved.’ The intention? To silence us in favor of money, medals and reputation. But we persisted, and finally someone listened and believed us.
