Gov. Snyder addresses Nassar case during State of the State
Gov. Rick Snyder addressed the sexual abuse committed by ex-MSU and USA Gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar at his final State of the State speech.
“Let us also apply a similar commitment in the Nassar case and reach out and support the courageous survivors and ensure that cases like this never happen again," Snyder said.
The commitment he referenced was Michigan First Lady Sue Snyder's efforts to combat campus sexual assault.
Sue Snyder has raised $1.6 million to educate people on sexual assault on college campuses.
Nassar's sentencing continued Tuesday, with it expected to end on Wednesday, according to Judge Rosemarie Aquilina.
Nassar faces seven counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct in Ingham County. The amount of survivors who have given victim impact statements is now over 150 individuals.
