Larry Nassar, who is receiving a life sentence for se*ually abusing young female gymnasts, was stabbed ten times — twice in the neck, twice in the back, and six times in the chest. He is steady. According to Reuters: Larry Nassar, USA Gymnastics’ notorious doctor convicted of se*ually abusing young female gymnasts, was stabbed numerous times in prison by another inmate.
US media said he was in stable condition on Monday (local time). The Federal Bureau of Prisons reported on Sunday afternoon that an inmate at the US Penitentiary Coleman in Florida was assaulted but refused to identify the prisoner due to privacy and security concerns.
Bureau spokesperson Benjamin O’Cone said in a statement-
“Responding staff immediately initiated life-saving measures,” “The inmate was transported by (emergency personnel) to a local hospital for further treatment and evaluation.”
The FBI was notified of the event, and an internal inquiry is underway, according to O’Cone. He stated that no other personnel or detainees were wounded. Nassar was stabbed ten times — twice in the neck, twice in the back, and six times in the chest — according to Joe Rojas, president of the local correction officers’ union.
To the Associated Press, Nassar was in stable condition, the first to report the assault. Nassar received a sentence of up to 175 years in prison for se*ually abusing young female gymnasts in his care, including Olympic gold medalists Simone Biles, Aly Raisman, and McKayla Maroney.
His sentencing came after an astonishing week-long hearing in which 160 of his victims, most of whom were juveniles when they were assaulted, related their tales unflinchingly.
Since the Nassar incident, USA Gymnastics has restructured its leadership and declared bankruptcy, citing the weight of lawsuits filed by hundreds of women se*ually abμsed by the former team doctor.
Nassar’s former employer, Michigan State University agreed to a $500 million deal with hundreds of women he se*ually abμsed. A $380 million settlement was negotiated between USA Gymnastics and the US Olympic and Paralympic Committee.
A report issued in July 2021 by Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz revealed pervasive and grave failures by the FBI, allowing Nassar to continue to abuse at least 70 more victims before being apprehended.
Biles and Maroney were among the high-profile Olympic gymnasts who testified before a US Senate panel in September 2021 about the se*ual assault they underwent for years under Nassar’s supervision. The gymnasts criticized the FBI for mishandling the probe at that hearing, with Biles accusing the bureau of turning a blind eye to all of Nassar’s victims.
