Former Olympic gymnastics and MSU sports doctor Larry Nassar returns to court

May 26, 2017

Former Olympic gymnastics and Michigan State University sports doctor Larry Nassar will be back in district court in Mason today. He'll face some of the women and girls who claim he sexually abused them while he was supposed to be treating their injuries.

Last fall, a few former gymnasts went public with their accusations against Nassar. Since then, more than 80 women and girls have gone to the police about him. Four of them will take the stand today.  

Michigan Radio’s Kate Wells joined Morning Edition host Doug Tribou to outline the multiple legal cases Nassar is facing and to explain what's at stake in today's hearing.
