Infamous Child Molester Larry Nassar Assaulted After Just Hours In Prison

A convicted child molesting doctor was assaulted in prison and his attorney blames the judge.

Tuscon, AZ – Convicted child molester and former sports doctor Larry Nassar was attacked by inmates at the federal Arizona prison where he will likely spend the rest of his life after pleading guilty to sexual assault and child pornography charges.

Nassar was “physically attacked” within hours after he was put in the general population at the United States Penitentiary, according to the Detroit News.

The claim was made in court documents filed by Nassar’s attorneys in Ingham County Circuit Court. Nassar’s attorneys want the former Michigan State University doctor to be re-sentenced by a different judge in the first of the molestation cases he faced.

Nassar, 54, is serving a 60-year federal sentence for possessing child pornography and was also sentenced to up to 175 years in state prison for molesting seven girls.

Malaika Ramsey-Heath, who is one of Nassar’s attorneys, said that he was removed from the general population of the prison. She didn’t have details of any injuries Nassar may have sustained, according to the Detroit News.

Ralph Miller, a retired Bureau of Prisons employee with an expertise in sex offender designations, told the Detroit News that federal inmates either live in the general population or the Special Housing Unit.

"That's the jail within the jail: lockdown 23 hours a day and they allow them out one hour a day for recreation," Miller said, according to the Detroit News.

One of Nassar’s attorneys blamed the judge who sentenced the disgraced doctor to prison for the assault, according to the Detroit News.

Attorney Jacqueline McCann said in a court filing that Judge Rosemarie Aquilina’s comments and conduct during the sentencing hearing encouraged violence against Nassar.

The attorney noted that the judge even had the nerve allow more than 150 girls and women to give victim impact statements in court over seven days.

“The judge herself openly lamented that she could not impose cruel and unusual punishment upon the defendant, indicated her expectation that he would be harmed in prison, without condemning it, and finally proclaimed, with apparent relish, that she was signing his 'death warrant,'" McCann wrote, according to the Detroit News. "Unfortunately, Judge Aquilina's comments and conducting of the sentencing proceeding appeared to encourage this type of behavior."

Fuck him. I am lucky to have two sons. If anyone, and I mean anyone touched them in the way he is alleged to have, I would find help.

Prison should pay the man. This was foreseeable and should have been prevented. Police officers who think that prisoners should be beat up in prison are not suited to be police officers. It is just not how America is supposed to work.

@Burgers Allday You are one dumb mother fucker!! Police officers don't think prisoners should be beaten up. Let me guess you also think they put out hits on prisoners. Wonder where you get this liberal information. Dumbass.com. What this scum bag did is what brought on his beaten. Major jerk off!!

Judge Rosemarie Aquilina is as responsible for his treatment from other inmates as Jacqueline McCann is responsible for the actions of Larry Nassar. Why shouldn't every single victim have a chance to speak at this perv's trial. I wonder how much of his "attack" was fact, and how much was a prearranged complaint because he was in fear of what MIGHT happen to him. After the negative way he affected so many lives, it would be good for him to spend the rest of his life in fear. Let what he did really sink in!

Burgers do you think the police officers get to decide whether this dude gets to go in general population or confined to the special housing unit? I think they should hang the bastard and be done with him to start with. If you are upset with his treatment perhaps you should try and make a difference in the future by going preach your nonsense to inmates in prison, the ones who attacked him. I'm sure they'd love to hear your point of view. By your logic, the police have a crystal ball and should be able to predict all crimes, and if not they somehow should be responsible for not coddling everyone under a blanket of armor. You have the same dumb-assed responses on here every day. Do you think that every single child molester in prison gets assaulted like this? Believe me, there are lots of child molesters, both in and out of prison. Do an online search of your local sex offender registry you'll be quite surprised how many live right near you I'll bet.

Let me ask you this Burgers.... lets assume you have a young daughter, say under 10 years old. And this Nassar guy molested her. How would you feel about that? Would you be concerned about his safety while in general population? I take it you have never been the victim of a crime by the things you say here. Troll.

This man should absolutely NOT receive any money or compensation. He was obviously protected, of he would be dead or in the hospital with serious rectal injuries. The guards do the best they can give the fact that they are supervising hundreds of prisoners in open areas, rather then locking them all in cages 24/7. If you can't do the time then don't do the crime. This man deserves EVERYTHING his fellow prisoners choose to give him, he is despicable! It is equal justice in my book, now maybe he will know just a little of what his victims suffered. I have no sympathy for this scum!

Bottom line: prisons are responsible for the safety of all prisoners. those who don't understand this should not be police officers..

Jailers work in prisons. And do you really think there are enough special safe spaces for all the child molesters in prisons? What about people that torture animals? Inmates have pets at home, and maybe would kick someone's ass over that? And who decides who gets this special protection status? Is it only child molesters?

What about transgender, gay, lesbian, bi, and transmogrificationing inmates? Where do we warehouse those clowns? And what about women beaters? Its not a very honorable thing to be walking around in a prison because you beat up women. Oh wait I forgot about rival gang members need to be separated too. Maybe we can just make prisons the size of a small city in each state, and hire a few hundred thousand extra guards needed to check all these safe spaces for contraband and to feed them separately, since we wouldn't want anyone in line at the mess hall to be attacked either. Separate safe space hotel rooms with each their own toilet, and shower facility, because you wouldn't wanna worry when you drop the soap either right? Burgers you sir are a genius and deserve the Nobel Peace prize. Hell Obama got it just for thinking about peace in North Korea.

So lets see if we are in agreement, we separate all inmates by the following for their new protected status:

Age, Sex, Race, Ethnicity, Gang Affiliation, type of crimes committed, sexual partner preference, gender preference, pronoun preference, gender preference, IQ, Religion, Food preferences, Height, Weight, Physical ability, Aptitude, Agility, Education level, relationship to other inmates (cousin, sibling etc), political affiliation, astrological sign, belief in global warming or not, hair style, hair color, clothing style, shoe size, muscle tone, skin tone, hair color, fighting ability, communication skills

The list is just a starter, if I missed anything let me know I'll gladly add it. I figure at least 99.9% of all inmates would get their own separate facilities. Assuming we could find about 20 extra trillion dollars to fund it each year.

Here's that federal prison in Tuscon's visiting schedule so you can let them know in person... you can even send Mr. Nassar money, maybe to help him pay for his attorney for when he sues the prison for not providing him with a safe space and emotional support animal.

@Burgers Allday Burgers here is his inmate info for ya:

And even a "voice your inmate concern" link, couldn't be easier. Let them know what you really think if you truly are concerned as you appear you are...

Scenarios for his prison term:

  1. 23hrs a day of solitary for his own protection, under cameras, ZERO privacy
  2. general population status and a "welcoming committee"

Option 1 the lawyer would've complained about his lack of privacy, violation if rights, blah blah. Option 2 she blames the judge. Typical.

Also it's pretty well known that prisons have their own sense of Justice for those that prey on children. The judge saying that he deserves to feel what his victims felt in no way put a novel idea into anyone's minds!

They all should be put into general population! BUT no the liberal system has to protect them. Since the law can't execute them just put them in general population!

Hey now he knows what it's like to be assaulted and you can't do a damn thing to stop it just like all of his VICTIMS!!!!! 👏💯

her comments are near impossible to get to inmate ears... no inmate can "google" (or otherwise get details about) another inmate. but the fact is that the inmates crime usually leaks despite also being restricted, especially if the trial received statewide or even national coverage.

very likely the assault wasn't because of judge's comments but rather because of the crime itself. the only way to have avoided the assault would have been to avoid general population in the first place.

so while the judge's comments might have been too much, no sentence appropriate to the crime would prevent prison time but even if it did, i'm sure there are some who would be glad to remind him "not to touch" out here outside of prison. and the "sex offender registry " would be glad to inform them where he can be found.
