Aquilina offered her own praise for the media, saying: "I do believe in the First Amendment". I hope you are shaken to your core. "That you remain a danger".

Nassar is scheduled to be sentenced next week on more assault convictions in Eaton County, Michigan.

Aquilina allowed scores of accusers to give victim impact statements during the sentencing, and she said she took their statements into account, explaining that the others who spoke added to the credibility of the seven whose cases were before her.

He also said there are no words that describe "the depth and breadth of how sorry I am".

"An acceptable apology to all of you is impossible to express or convey".

"I will carry your words with me for the rest of my days", said Nassar, who had pled guilty to 10 counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct last November.

He also, confoundingly, argued that he had been "a good doctor". "I don't want them re-victimized by the words in the letter".

"I couldn't hold his hand.because closeness wasn't safe, and trust wasn't safe", Denhollander said.

The crowd gasped as Aquilina then read from the letter: "Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned". You do not deserve to walk outside a prison ever again. "You are survivors. You're very strong". He worked at Michigan State University and USA Gymnastics, which trains Olympians.

The judge is listening to a few more victims before she sends him to prison. One by one, women and their families came forward to confront Nassar and explain how he used his respected position to molest young, injured girls. "It changes the trajectory of a victim's life, and that is something that nobody has the right to do". "We will have no further comment at this time".

The wait was worth it, judging by the volume inside the Linc. "To be the best", Brent Celek said, "you have to beat the best". Yet there were the die-hard Eagles fans partying all night inside the Linc after partying in the tailgating lots all day.

Court officials initially expected 88 victims to speak in court. During the seven-day hearing, more than 150 women shared their stories.

"You have not taken gymnastics away from me". "Not one by one, but by an army of survivors". Judge Rosemarie Aquilina will hear a few more Wednesday before sentencing Nassar.

"To date, Michigan State has sent no information to the NCAA national office regarding Nassar's actions, his role as a team physician, affected student athletes, operation of athletic department practices or policies, remediation efforts or involvement of those on campus, inside and outside the athletics department".

"Inaction is an action, silence is indifference, justice requires action and a voice, and that is what has happened here in this court".

All three organizations have denied wrongdoing and said they reported the sexual abuse allegations to authorities once they learned about them. Women's gymnastics coach Kathie Klages resigned last year after she was suspended for defending Nassar over the years.

That will fall to 25 percent in the second year, 20 percent in the third year and 15 percent in the fourth year. South Korea's trade minister says that the "latest safeguard measures are in violation to WTO rules".

"At this particular moment in history, this sentencing hearing will be viewed as a turning point in how our community, our state, our nation, our culture looks at sexual abuse", she said.

U.S. Olympic Committee CEO Scott Blackmun released an open letter apologizing for Nassar and for not being present for the athletes' testimony.

Nassar, 54, also spoke Wednesday, making a brief statement. "We have said it in other contexts, but we have not been direct enough with you". You're about self-preservation, but you made a decision to not address what's inside you that causes this control urge.
