LANSING, Mich. (AP) — The Latest on the sentencing of Michigan sports doctor Larry Nassar and other developments in the case (all times local):
The last witness to speak at the sentencing hearing for a Michigan sports doctor accused of sexually assaulting women and girls is a Kentucky lawyer who stepped forward in 2016 after USA Gymnastics was accused of mishandling complaints.
Rachael Denhollander says Larry Nassar groped, fondled and penetrated her with his hands when she was a 15-year-old gymnast in Michigan. Denhollander's statements to Michigan State University police put the criminal investigation in high gear in 2016.
Denhollander said Wednesday that she did it "because it was right." She told Nassar in court, "You have become a man ruled by selfish and perverted desires." He worked at Michigan State University and USA Gymnastics, which trains Olympians.
Nassar faces a minimum prison term of 25 to 40 years.
A judge says a Michigan sports doctor who sexually assaulted young gymnasts and other girls will "be in darkness the rest of his life."
Judge Rosemarie Aquilina made the remark Wednesday as Larry Nassar's sentencing hearing entered a seventh and final day in Lansing, Michigan. The judge is listening to a few more victims before she sends him to prison.
Sterling Riethman told Nassar that he created an "army of warrior women" with no "white flag to wave."
