Nassar pleaded guilty to charges of obtaining and possessing child pornography and attempting to destroy evidence in July. In November, Nassar pleaded guilty to 10 state counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct.
“It’s imperative Mr. Nassar be deterred as long as possible,” Judge Janet T. Neff said, according to ESPN. “Mr. Nassar was, is and, in my view, will continue to be a danger to children. He has demonstrated that he should never again have access to children.”
Neff also declared Nassar a threat to children.
