American chat for sex
Victim Rachael Denhollander (C) listens as Larry Nassar, a former team USA Gymnastics doctor who pleaded guilty in November 2017 to sexual-assault charges, is sentenced in Lansing, Michigan, U. It was an arresting moment, even on a day full of them.
The Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman stood in front of a courtroom last Friday and addressed Larry Nassar, the former Michigan State University doctor who’s been accused by upwards of 150 women of sexually abusing them over more than two decades.
Yet while Strampel stepped down as dean last month citing “medical reasons,” he remains on faculty at the College of Osteopathic Medicine.
That a reckoning arrived as soon as the story reached the mainstream consciousness did not seem like a coincidence.
“Larry,” she said from the podium in the Lansing, Michigan, courtroom, “you do realize now that we, this group of women you so heartlessly abused over such a long period of time, are now a force, and you are nothing.”By the time Raisman’s 13-minute testimony ended, she had castigated not only Nassar but also everyone who she contended had enabled and protected him, including the leadership at USA Gymnastics. Until that point, the case had gotten relatively little national attention.
