According to ESPN.com, Judge Janet T. Neff told Nassar at his sentencing that he used his position of authority to sexually assault young women during his career as a doctor with US gymnastics and Michigan State University, thus violating the most basic principle of medicine.

"He should never have access to children again", Judge Neff said during court proceedings, per MLive.

He was sentenced to 20 years on each of three counts, to be served consecutively. Federal Judge Janet Neff followed the government's recommended sentence Thursday.

Nassar initially pleaded not guilty to possessing the child pornography.

In court filings last week, Nassar's attorneys had asked Neff to show leniency, saying the doctor had worked toward redemption by helping fellow inmates and taking Bible classes since his arrest almost a year ago.

He also pleaded guilty to obstruction of justice for trying to destroy the evidence.

"Underneath this veneer lurked a predator", Assistant U.S. Attorney Sean Lewis said. As part of a deal with federal prosecutors to obtain his guilty plea, prosecutors agreed they would not charge him with alleged sexual exploitation of children in relation to four reported victims.

Thursday's sentencing ends one of three criminal cases against Nassar.

Nassar has also pleaded guilty to 10 counts of sexual assault in two other cases in MI, admitting that he abused young athletes under the guise of offering medical treatment.

Separately, more than 100 women and girls are suing Nassar.

But those women are only a small part of the scandal: At least 125 women complained to MSU, and almost 150 are involved in a civil lawsuit against Nassar, MSU, Gedderts' Twistars USA Gymnastics Club and others. Maroney was in the courtroom Thursday. In the note, Maroney opens up about her love of gymnastics and from at a very young age, she knew she wanted to make it to the Olympics.

He started working at MSU, his alma mater, in 1997.

His public downfall began in September 2016, when the Indianapolis Star named Nassar in a report on USA Gymastics' lackluster response to allegations of assault. "After McKayla spoke with an investigator with USA Gymnastics in July 2015, USA Gymnastics and the USOC kept the knowledge of [Nassar's] status as a child molester secret from Michigan State University after 2015 and even said nothing when he ran for school board in his local school district!"

Nassar, who worked with USA Gymnastics for almost three decades as a trainer and medical coordinator, could receive a minimum sentence of 27 years, but prosecutors want a 60-year prison term.
