After a marathon sentencing hearing, Larry Nassar wants a do-over. Nassar is the former Michigan State University sports doctor who sexually assaulted his patients for years.
Nassar wants to be resentenced – but first, he wants a new judge.
More than 100 victims of Nassar gave impact statements during his 7-day sentencing hearing in January. During that time, Judge Rosemarie Aquilina made supportive statements to each victim that spoke. When it came time to sentence Nassar, Aquilina told him she was sorry she couldn’t impose cruel and unusual punishment on Nassar.
