"As much as it was my honor and privilege to hear the sister survivors, it is my honor and privilege to sentence you." Judge Rosemarie Aquilina has sentenced Larry Nassar up to 175 years in prison. pic.twitter.com/BDX7LQDCLm

“This is what it looks like when the adults in authority do not respond properly to disclosures of sexual assault.” One of the first women to publicly accuse #LarryNassar gives last impact statement before sentencing. pic.twitter.com/BKsqFVDwOS

It should never take 150 voices for us to hear the truth. Larry Nassar's actions are those of a monster. I am in awe of the courage of the women who testified against him. When women speak up about sexual abuse, we need to listen.

Is making Larry Nassar sit there for a week straight while every single victim obliterates him to his face one by one the greatest use of the justice system ever?https://t.co/j6O9zIiU4B pic.twitter.com/4fYIdpBkw3

Larry Nassar so grotesquely violated a doctor's most sacred oath to do no harm. But Judge Aquilina stayed true to her most sacred oath to bring a monster to justice.

I feel not a shred of sympathy or compassion for disgraced pedophile Dr. Larry Nassar for molesting hundreds of young girls.

Larry Nassar sentenced to 175 years in prison.
That's not enough. Now we need to jail all the USA Gymnastics coaches, directors and other medical staff members that ignored reports of sexual abuse and refused to protect the young women. #LarryNassar

Without the bravery of Rachael Denhollander, disgraced ex-Team USA doctor Larry Nassar may still be abusing women today.https://t.co/U2oOVhey43

Judge Aquilina forced Larry Nassar to listen to 150+ victims speak about the trauma he caused, threw away the letter Nassar wrote to the court about how hard it was for him to listen to the victims, and then sentenced him to 175+ years in prison. We need more judges like her.

Today, we focus not on the evils of Larry Nassar, rather we focus on the brave young women that spoke out against him after years of torment. We praise their courage, their resilience, & must collectively ensure to create a society that emboldens survivors to speak out freely.

Sandusky and #LarryNassar cases are a rare opportunity for the non-academic world to see what moral and intellectual voids most high-level university administrators are.
