Larry Nassar attacked in prison, lawyer says
Larry Nassar was attacked in prison in May, his attorney claims.
The former Michigan State and USA Gymnastics trainer is serving 40 to 175 years in state prison for multiple sexual assaults committed while serving as a trainer over at least a 25-year span. He is serving his time in the United States Penitentiary in Tucson, Arizona, and apparently things are not going well.
According to TMZ Sports, Nassar’s public defender filed documents stating that the serial molester was attacked in prison when he was released into the general population. The attorney seemed to accuse the judge presiding over the case of creating an atmosphere that could lead to the attacks by encouraging such behavior. Even the “death warrant” comment was referenced.
Nassar, 54, received three different prison sentences. The first was in July 2017 for 60 years in federal prison, the second in January 2018 for 40-175 years in state prison, and the third 40-125 years. It seems Nassar could be moved facilities.
