The former Michigan State Athletic doctor who sexually assaulted underage and innocent girls throughout his entire career has just been sentenced to 40-175 years in Prison for his crimes.

The judge leading the case, Judge Rosemarie Aquilina is encouraging family members and victims to speak to the media about their feelings and thoughts on this roller coaster of emotions of a case. justice is being served and a message is being sent to those who prey on the weak.

Judge Aquilina addressed the defendant and a rapt audience both in her courtroom and across multiple media outlets covering the case. Several quotes from her statement:

I just signed your death warrant.

There has to be a massive investigation as to why there was inaction, why there was silence. Justice requires more than what I can do on this bench.

Your words these past several days, your words, your words, have had a significant emotional impact on myself and have shaken me to my core. There are no words that can describe the depth and breadth for how sorry I am for what has occurred.

An acceptable apology to all of you is impossible to express or convey. I will carry your words with me for the rest of my days.
