Former USA Olympic doctor Larry Nassar gets 60 years in prison for child porn

Nassar has also pleaded guilty of abusing young athletes under the guise of offering medical treatment.

Former USA Gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar was sentenced to 60 years in prison on Thursday for child pornography, the Lansing State Journal reported.

Nassar, 54, who is also facing sentencing for sexually assaulting members of the women’s Olympics gymnastics team, pleaded guilty in July to three counts of possessing child pornography.

He was given 20 years in prison on each count by a judge at a court hearing in Grand Rapids, Michigan, the newspaper said.

“He has demonstrated that he should never again have access to children,” US District Judge Janet Neff was quoted by the Journal as saying. “You have to wonder whether he felt he was omnipotent, whether he felt he was getting away with something so cleverly,” Neff added.

Nassar has also pleaded guilty to 10 counts of sexual assault in two other cases in Michigan, admitting that he abused young athletes under the guise of offering medical treatment.

Olympic gold medalists McKayla Maroney, Aly Raisman and Gabby Douglas have said they were among the members of the USA Gymnastics team assaulted by Nassar when he served as team doctor. He could face life in prison when he is sentenced on those charges next month.

Reclining on a bed of satin, the glass-encased phone blends into the folds of the luxurious fabric.

The slimness, seamlessness and solidity of the phone make for a great profile shot.

A stunning design which is IP68 rated water-resistant too, it is as beautiful as it is strong.

We partnered with photographer Gaurav Sawn to create this series. Says Gaurav, “The glass sandwich design looks extremely good and the reflections on the back panel make the phone stand out. This is a phone that is best used without a case. The curved corners were also very comfortable to hold. All in all, really enjoyed shooting this phone!”

While this phone is elegant and crafted to perfection, it is also extremely tough, being protected from scratches with Corning® Gorilla® Glass that stretches all the way around.

You don’t need to sacrifice of performance either. It’s packed with a 2.2 GHz octa-core Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 630 processor and comes with a TurboPower™ Charger which means hours of power in minutes!

For the music lover, this phone is a boon. With simultaneous connectivity of up to four Bluetooth® audio devices at the same time, you can build your own stereo system without worrying about cables.

The dual rear cameras – a 12MP that lets you focus faster and get great results even on dark, cloudy days, and an 8 MP camera, with wide angle lens makes your most ambitious photos look all the more impressive.
