US Prosecutor Credits Investigative Reporters for Nassar Case

At this week's sentencing of ex-Olympic gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar, who molested more than 100 young US women, the prosecutor in the case gave credit to investigative reporting. “We, as a society, need investigative journalists more than ever," said Michigan Assistant Attorney General Angela Povilaitis. "What finally started this reckoning and ended this decades-long cycle of abuse was investigative reporting. Without that first Indianapolis Star story in August 2016... he would still be practicing medicine, treating athletes and abusing kids." Nassar received 40 to 175 years in prison.
