Larry Nassar Victim Slams Disgraced Coach Over Call for New Sentencing After Prison Assault
One of Larry Nassar's victims reacted to the disgraced U.S. Gymnastics coach's claims that a recent prison assault was encouraged by a notable comment made by the judge in his case.
Attorneys for Nassar say Judge Rosemarie Aquilina's "I just signed your death warrant" comment about his state prison sentence -- 40 to 175 years -- contributed to the recent assault in a federal prison in Tucson, where he is serving 60 years for possession of child pornography.
They want a new sentencing hearing and a new judge, Martha MacCallum reported.
Sarah Klein, who said she was molested from age 8 to 25, said she is "absolutely not surprised" by Nassar's attempt.
"Typical Larry," she said. "Larry is a master manipulator. ... What does a prisoner want more than anything? To get out of prison."
Klein, now 38, said Aquilina was "dignified" in the way she handled Nassar's case.
"She gave us the ability to speak up [and] use our voices," she said, adding that "healing took place" in the courtroom.
Klein said it took her a long time to realize the "treatments" Nassar said he was giving her were actually unwanted physical contact of a sexual nature.
"He knew," she said.
