Ingham County sentencing proceedings begin tomorrow on sexual abuse charges for former MSU Doctor Larry Nassar. In November, Nassar pleaded guilty to seven counts of first degree criminal sexual conduct in Ingham County.

All 125 victims who reported sexual abuse by Nassar will be given a chance to speak during this week’s proceedings, which are scheduled through Friday.

In December, Nassar was sentenced to 60 years in prison on federal child pornography charges.
