Former USA Gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar was stabbed 10 times in jail.

It was reported on Sunday that Larry Nassar, a former doctor at Michigan State University and USA Gymnastics who was convicted of decades of abuse of women and kids under the pretence of medical treatment, was stabbed in a federal prison in Florida. Nassar was found guilty of abusing women and girls under the guise of medical treatment.

According to a story by the Associated Press, Nassar got engaged in a fight with another individual at the United States Penitentiary Coleman in Florida. As a result of the fight, Nassar was reportedly stabbed numerous times, including in the chest and the back.

According to the AP, Nassar's health remained unchanged.

Statements of victim impact were given by hundreds of women and girls against Nassar in 2018, bringing an end to one of the worst sexual abuse scandals in the history of US sports. These statements detailed claims of abuse dating as far back as the 1990s.

A number of athletes, including Olympians Jordyn Wieber, Aly Raisman, and McKayla Maroney, stated that they communicated accusations to coaches, trainers, and other individuals, but that these claims were not reported to the appropriate authorities.

After the FBI became aware of claims made against Nassar in 2015, more than one hundred women, including the Olympian Simone Biles, filed a lawsuit against the United States government seeking more than one billion dollars in damages for the FBI's failure to take action. Because no action was taken, Larry Nassar was able to continue his pattern of sexual assault on women and children for more than a year until pleading guilty in 2017.

Michigan State University, whose president, Lou Anna Simon, and athletic director, Mark Hollis, resigned amid fallout from the scandal, agreed to a $500 million settlement with more than 300 women and girls. This is a sum that is significantly larger than the $60 million that Penn State University paid to victims of the former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky.

During the decades that Nassar spent abusing women, it was alleged that MSU turned a blind eye to the situation and did nothing to stop him.

A settlement for $380 million was reached between USA Gymnastics, the United States Olympic and Paralympic Committee, and more than 500 women and girls.

Who is Larry Nassar?

Born on August 16, 1963, Lawrence Gerard Nassar is an American serial child rapist who once worked as a physician specializing in sports medicine. He was the team doctor for the United States women's national gymnastics team for eighteen years, during which time he exploited, deceived, and sexually assaulted hundreds of girls and young women. He did this while using his position as team doctor.

The allegations that Nassar routinely sexually abused at least 265 young women and girls under the premise of medical treatment led to the USA Gymnastics sex abuse crisis, which started in 2015. The allegations state that USA Gymnastics attempted to cover up Nassar's sexual abuse of young girls and women, which led to the scandal.Numerous gymnasts from the United States women's national gymnastics team and the Olympic competition were among his victims.

On July 11, 2017, Nassar entered a guilty plea to counts of child pornography and tampering with evidence. On December 7, 2017, he was sentenced to 60 years in federal prison for his crimes. Nassar pleaded guilty. After entering a guilty plea to seven charges of sexual assault in Ingham County on January 24, 2018, Nassar was given a sentence that ranged from an extra 40 to 175 years in a state prison in the state of Michigan. After entering a guilty plea to an additional three charges of sexual assault in Eaton County on February 5, 2018, he was given a sentence that ranged from an extra 40 to 125 years in a state prison in Michigan.

His state prison terms are to run concurrently with his federal sentence, as per the instructions of the judge who is in charge of the federal case. This will ensure that he is effectively serving a sentence of life imprisonment without the possibility of release. When Nassar is freed from federal detention, he will be sent to a state prison in the state of Michigan, and the two state sentences he is now serving will be served concurrently.He will play a significant role in the upcoming documentary film Athlete A, which will be released in 2020.
