Disgraced ex-USA Gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar sent to Arizona federal prison

Dozens of women and girls testified at Nassar's MI sentencing hearings, telling judges how his sexual abuse changed their lives.

Nassar, who was also sentenced up to 125 years in prison for molesting at least 265 girls and young women, is now housed in the United States Penitentiary in Tucson.

He was also sentenced in two MI courts on numerous sex crime charges.

FBP has listed the release date of Nassar as 3/23/2069.

He had already received a 40-to-175-year sentence in a neighbouring MI county, and was sentenced to a 60-year federal term for child pornography convictions.

In 1996 Nassar was named the national medical coordinator for USA Gymnastics and also held the title of assistant professor and team physician at Michigan State University.


ABC News' attempts to reach Nassar's defense attorney as well as the Federal Bureau of Prisons were unsuccessful.

During nine days of sentencing hearings, some victims said they reported Nassar as far back as 1997 but were ignored until the Indianapolis Star unmasked him as a predator in the fall of 2016.

Former USA gymnastics and Michigan State doctor Larry Nassar has been transferred to a high security prison in Tucson.

"He will rightfully spend the rest of his life in prison", the statement read.

This week, Congress started an investigation into institutions that Nassar worked for, including USA Gymnastics and Michigan State University.

The U.S. Olympic Committee demanded that the USA Gymnastics board resign on January 31 or face termination as the sport's national governing body.
