Judge Rosemarie Aquilina responded to Nassar's apology by saying, "I agree that now is a time of healing, but it may take them a lifetime of healing while you spend your lifetime behind bars thinking about what you did in taking away their childhood".
Gabby Douglas, who initially faced some heat for seemingly not supporting Raisman when she came forward, also reported her own sexual violation with Nassar on Tuesday. "I didn't view my comments as victim shaming because I know that no matter what you wear, it NEVER gives anyone the right to harass or abuse you."It would be like saying that because of the leotards we wore, it was our fault that we were abused by Larry Nassar".
Olympic champion Gabby Douglas revealed on Tuesday she was also abused by a former USA team doctor as she issued a new statement responding to allegations she "victim-shamed" team-mate Aly Raisman.
