Welcome to popular Wiki of the Day where we read the summary of a popular Wikipedia page every day.

With 215,486 views on Thursday, 16 September 2021 our article of the day is Larry Nassar.

Lawrence Gerard Nassar (born August 16, 1963) is an American convicted sex offender and former physician. For 18 years, he was the team doctor of the United States women's national gymnastics team, which gave him access to hundreds of girls and young women whom he sexually abused and raped. He is also a former osteopathic physician and former professor at Michigan State University College of Human Medicine.

Nassar's sexual abuse of young girls and women and the subsequent cover-up led to the USA Gymnastics sex abuse scandal that began in 2015, alleging that Nassar repeatedly sexually assaulted at least 265 young women and girls under the guise of medical treatment. His victims included numerous Olympic and United States women's national gymnastics team gymnasts. Nassar was sentenced to 60 years in federal prison on December 7, 2017, after pleading guilty to child pornography and tampering with evidence charges on July 11, 2017. On January 24, 2018, Nassar was sentenced to an additional 40 to 175 years in Michigan State prison after pleading guilty in Ingham County to seven counts of sexual assault of minors. On February 5, 2018, he was sentenced to an additional 40 to 125 years in Michigan State prison after pleading guilty to an additional three counts of sexual assault in Eaton County. The Eaton County sentence will run concurrently with the Ingham County sentence. On the orders of the judge in charge of the federal case, his state prison sentences are to run consecutively with his federal sentence, amounting to a sentence of de facto life imprisonment without parole.
