Nassar Appeals Additional Sentence in Eaton County

Attorneys for disgraced sports doctor Larry Nassar are trying to appeal his sentence for molesting young gymnasts.

More than 200 young women and girls accused Nassar of sexually abusing them during treatments at Michigan State University, USA Gymnastics and a Lansing-area gymnastics club.

He took plea deals in November in both Ingham and Eaton counties and was sentenced to 40 to 175 years in prison.

He’s now saying the punishment goes beyond his plea agreement.

Nassar tried to appeal the Ingham County case last month, arguing that the judge was biased against him.

That effort failed.

Now he’s appealing his sentence in Eaton County.

Nassar also has a pending appeal of his 60-year federal prison sentence for having child pornography.
