Disgraced Former Gymnastics Doctor Sent to Arizona Prison
There was little reaction in Larry Nassar's face as he was sentenced Monday, Feb. 5, 2018, in Judge Janice Cunningham's Eaton County Court in Charlotte, Mich., where Nassar was sentenced to 40-125 years in prison on three counts of sexual assault.   (Matthew Dae Smith/Lansing State Journal via AP)

Nassar faces two long prison sentences in Michigan for molestation. But first he must serve 60 years in federal prison for child pornography crimes.

The Nassar scandal upended the gymnastics world and raised alarms about the sport's ask-no-questions culture.
