"We have taken care of one perpetrator". A judge on Monday ordered Nassar's third and final sentence: 40 to 125 years in prison.

The sentence is largely symbolic because the 54-year-old is already assured of spending the rest of his life in prison. He is also serving a 60-year federal sentence for child pornography convictions.

The board of USA Gymnastics has agreed to resign in the wake of Nassar's sentencing, as did the president and athletic director of Michigan State University.

Those inquiries include a special prosecutor and a legislative probe in MI, a law firm investigating the U.S. Olympic Committee and a Texas Rangers review of claims that Nassar assaulted some of the world's best gymnasts while they trained at a ranch southeast of Huntsville.

An investigation is also underway into the response of the US Olympic Committee to its knowledge of the allegations against Nassar. Shortly after that announcement, however, he was suspended by USA Gymnastics.

Jerri Nesbitt, a spokeswoman for the sheriff's office, told the Lansing State Journal Tuesday that "there are new people coming forward" with complaints, but would not elaborate on the nature of the complaints because police continue to investigate.

The latest round of sentencing has seen Nassar sit through testimony from dozens of victims over two days last week. "Finally, I don't have to face him in court anymore".

The FBI became aware of Nassar in July 2015 when it was contacted by USA Gymnastics, which trains athletes for the Olympics.

That case came three years before the 2016 surveillance order described in the Nunes memo. "I'm not going to speculate", said Rep. Democrats say the GOP memo contradicts its own premise that the Russian Federation investigation began with Page and the dossier.

"Larry Nassar is a master of manipulation", Kaitlyn Basel, a dancer who was first abused by Nassar at the age of 12, told the court Friday. "It was frightening but afterward, I'd never felt so powerful", Larson said.

The latest sentence stems from abuse he committed at the Twistars gymnastics training centre in MI, where victims said in court they were referred to Nassar for treatment and were molested.

He read a brief statement before the sentence was handed down, saying he was sorry for the pain he had caused, but Cunningham was not moved.

In all, more than 260 women have accused Nassar of sexual assaulting them since Rachael Denhollander broke her story of Nassar's sexual assault to the Indianapolis Star in September of 2016.

"I am in awe of each of you and I appreciate your efforts to provide me with your statements, flying in from Europe, all over the country, submitting videos, taking time off of work, missing classes", she said. Other victims were non-athletes treated for back, leg and other injuries, she said. "You don't get it, and I do not believe there's a likelihood that you could be reformed", she said, reports Michigan Live.

A prosecutor had earlier said Nassar found competitive gymnastics to be a "perfect place" for his crimes because victims saw him as a "god" in the sport.

"We are taught to trust".

Boyce has said she and a fellow teenage teammate complained about Nassar in 1997.
