More than 150 women came forward to speak against the horrific acts performed on them by disgraced gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar.

Strong words from Judge Rosemarie Aquilina at the sentencing of former Team USA gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar for sexual abuse.

Judge Aquilina also factored Nassar's letter to the victims in her decision, which included him writing, "Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned".

Raisman, 23, thanked the prosecutors and law enforcement officials for holding Nassar accountable for his actions; the gymnastics community and her fans around the world for all their messages of support; and of course, her family and friends.

Apart from Biles, other athletes including Jordyn Weiber, Alexandra Raisman, Jade Capua, Anne Marie Anderson, and Melissa Imrie too took to Twitter to express their gratitude toward Judge Aquilina. In particular, Kathie Klages, a gymnastics coach who retired from the university past year, has been accused of actively trying to cover up claims of abuse against Nassar.

Sentencing Larry Nassar Is Only a Start

In the expose, multiple victims accuse the university of not doing almost enough to investigate claims of abuse, with some even going as far as to say the university made them feel shameful for reporting his misconduct at all. And as she holds her three young children, wonders how Nassar could have violated innocent lives.

Nassar, who served as the physician for the United States gymnastics programme through four Olympic Games was accused by the victims of using medical treatments as an excuse to justify penetrating their bodies with his fingers.

Michigan State's president announced her resignation Wednesday night amid the controversy over how the school handled the allegations against Nassar. However, things may be a bit different in terms of the NCAA's jurisdiction over Michigan State, as some of Nassar's survivors are former Michigan State athletes. Throughout my career, I have worked very hard to put Team MSU first. It makes me literally sick all the stress and the trauma of everything, but for that moment. MSU Board President Brian Breslin has also posted a statement saying that the MSU Board of Trustees had accepted her resignation stating "We agree with Dr. Simon that it is now time for change".

"Larry meticulously groomed me for the goal of exploiting me for his sexual gain", Denhollander said in court. "There are no words to describe the depth and breadth of how sorry I am for what has occurred. I know that we all share the same resolve to do whatever it takes to avert such tragedies here and elsewhere".
