Sumterville, FL– Doctor Larry Nassar, who was convicted of sexually abusing several female gymnasts, was reportedly stabbed multiple times at a Florida prison.
According to a report from The Associated Press, Nassar was stabbed in both the chest and the back during an altercation with another inmate at the United States Penitentiary Coleman Sunday.
No other details were released about the attack, but it was said that Nassar is in stable condition.
In 2018, Nassar was sentenced to 40 to 175 years in federal prison after he admitted to sexually assaulting several patients when he worked at Michigan State University and USA Gymnastics.
He also pleaded guilty to possessing child pornography.
During the seven-day hearing, more than 150 women and girls offered statements about being abused by the former doctor.
After Nassar was charged, Rachael Denhollander who was the first woman to publicly accuse the doctor stated:
“It’s over. … Almost six years after I filed the police report, it’s finally over.”
