Former gymnastics doctor for the U.S. Olympics and Michigan State University, Larry Nassar, was sentenced to 40-175 years in prison today, as a result of an overwhelming sexual assault case.

Why it matters: Nassar's case is one of the biggest to come out of the wave of sexual assault and harassment allegations that started last fall. It led to the resignation of three executive board members at USA Gymnastics, and the NCAA is opening an investigation into MSU, as 14 university representatives reportedly knew of reports against Nassar.
