Larry Nassar Pleads Guilty To Having Child Porn; Sentencing in November

UPDATED THURSDAY, JULY 13, 11:05 A.M. - Federal Judge Janet Neff has scheduled Nassar's sentencing for 11 a.m. on Monday, November 27 in U.S. District Court in Grand Rapids.

In federal court on Tuesday, former Michigan sports doctor Larry Nassar pleaded guilty to having child pornography.

Nassar said "I plead guilty as stated" to the three counts of possessing child pornography while in a federal courtroom in Grand Rapids.

Nassar could face a 20-year prison sentence on each count. The judge could order him to serve all three consecutively or concurrently. Sentencing could take place sometime during the fall.

The federal case is separate from sexual assault charges involving women and girls who said they were molested by him when they sought treatment for injuries.

Nassar was a sports medicine specialist at Michigan State. He also worked for Indianapolis-based USA Gymnastics, which trains Olympians.

Besides the child porn case, Nassar is charged with sexually assaulting nine women or girls in three criminal cases in the Lansing area.

Separately, Nassar is being sued by more than 100 women or girls.
