“I just signed your death warrant” from judge to inmate Larry Nasser

Larry Nasser is now an inmate and he will die in prison. Judge Acquilina reminded him when she sentenced the bastard that he is not getting out from behind the walls alive and I applaud her for signing his death warrant.

He has a nice, long, 60-year federal prison sentence for having a lot of child pornography and staring at charges of 40 – 175 years, as well. Which this serial pedophile deserves. And he is not the only one who deserve time in jail.

He is no longer a doctor, and will have a nice orange and blue and/or khaki jumpsuit to wear every day of his hopefully miserable life. Consecutive sentences at that. So he leaves one prison, and is transported by bus or Con Air to the next one.

Best of all, the judges did not let him play his games. Unlike the MSU president and his supervisors and enablers, they put the victims first. As everyone should have done. MSU knew a long time before this what this bastard was doing. They did nothing. Her Honor is a mom. And I have to say she would have my vote for any office she wants.

I am vindictive, so I am waiting for the investigation of MSU. I am hoping the enablers of this horrid man also share the same accommodations and fashionable attire soon. The death penalty is too good for this predator for those so inclined. He will live his life behind bars. His accommodations will not be pleasant and, upon his death, his remains will be given to his family or buried in a prison graveyard.

The Lansing State Journal covered the federal case here and Judge Neff threw the book at this pervert in no uncertain terms:

He has demonstrated that he should never again have access to children,” U.S. District Judge Janet Neff said as she imposed a sentence that went beyond guidelines calling for 22 to 27 years in prison.

He was sentenced to 20 years on each of three counts to which he’s admitted. The sentences are to be served consecutively.

Neff also ordered that his federal time would be served consecutively to state sentences for sexual assault to which he’s also admitted. He will be sentenced next month on those charges.The courtroom was filled to capacity. Among those in attendance were several victims of Nassar’s admitted sexual assault, their relatives and their attorneys. Several victims said after the sentencing they were still trying to process their feelings, but it was a step toward justice.

Inmate Nasser left the court in cuffs. Then he got to my other new hero: Judge Rosemary Acquilina. She did not accept his whining. She did not accept his excuses. And at sentencing she tore him a new one.

CBS has a nice summary here.

Nassar complained to Judge Rosemarie Aquilina at one point in the proceedings, penning a letter saying that being subjected to the statements was “mental cruelty.” Aquilina dismissed the complaint, adding that listening to the statements was part of Nassar’s plea deal, and the statements went on as planned.

What the hell? Mental Cruelty? Her Honor did not accept that foolishness. And Her Honor had quite a few more words for the inmate (which I am applauding wildly).

Aquilina said she would not give statements after the sentence was handed down, saying that “it’s just not my story.” However, she said plenty to Nassar before sentencing him. Immediately after she gave him the number of years in prison, Aquilina said that she “just signed [Nassar’s] death warrant.”

As she read her reasoning for Nassar’s sentencing, she cited his unapologetic nature. In the letter, Nassar wrote “hell hath no fury like a woman scorned,” a sentence that was met with gasps from the courtroom. She added that it was an “honor” and a “privilege” to sentence Nassar, saying that she “wouldn’t send [her] dogs” to Nassar. When she concluded with Nassar’s letter, Aquilina casually flipped it aside.

My dogs have fantastic vets and vet techs. Nasser is not fit to pick up poopsicles from the lawn. Which may be a possible inmate job in one of his fine-hotel grey-bar lodgings. And love how she gave his whining the respect it deserves. That would be: none.

Now there are those would complain she is being somehow mean or harsh on the poor pumpkin. And perhaps gave grounds for appeal. Here is an interesting article with a few useful questions.

Imagine that poll question. “Did the judge behave improperly by mocking a convicted child-molesting degenerate?”

Some say this was improper and other see this as wielding the Clue Bat of Justice to a deserving inmate who is leaving the outside until after death. He pleaded guilty and was sentenced in prison garb. From his victims there is not a doubt in the world.

This tweet made me cry. Because it is about the victims, and a system that failed 164 young girls who trusted their doctor, their gymnastics coaches and association, and MSU to protect them and all these people failed. Was she trying for a position of power? She is a Democrat and the current administration appoints federal judges.

I do understand there may be legal issues in play, but I cannot see where she did anything wrong. Maybe it is just me, but she did let the victims speak, and that is valuable. She did not play his games and did not let the monster ignore the victim impact statements. I hope the marshals or Michigan State Police play a recording of victim impact statements all the way to Nasser’s new prison home.

The courts and Michigan judges will handle the legal stuff. For me, if 164 young girls and their families sleep a little better I cannot be mad at the judge for helping that along.

    I love what she said, I share her feelings on this piece of filth, and I wish him a long life in jail. Yes, there is a BUT coming. It was extremely unprofessional of her to make the death warrant comment. Her comment turned a judicial procedure from a quest for justice to a quest for revenge and retribution. We’re supposed to be better people than that. Does that make me a hypocrite? In some people’s eyes, I’m sure it does. I’ll still sleep just fine tonight.

    • Gail Boer says:

      All of this. He was a jackass who provided a rather inflammatory letter and she stepped out and went off on him. I can’t say I blame her. And yes the response was snarky as all get out and hopefully the jerk won’t get an appeal. Thanks for thinking further than I wanted to.

    One can make metaphor, euphemism, imagined equivocation, or malaprop, all day long.
    This was not a death warrant.
    Dragged outside, no appeal, and (ie)beheaded in the public square is a death warrant.
    “Wanted! Dead or alive!” is a death warrant.
    I think we’ve all seen “The Death Penalty” isn’t even a death warrant. (sometimes fortunately so!)

    • Gail Boer says:

      Sad but true. Although guaranteeing him a home behind bars is a death sentence of a sort in a happy hyperbolic way. Hopefully it sank in for this piece of slime what his future holds too!

  • The Judge’s comment is sanctionable, and if he wasn’t already sentenced to a lengthy term on federal charges, and on his way to what is almost certainly another lengthy sentence in neighboring Eaton county, it’s the kind of error that would almost certainly lead to an appeal. On the whole, her remarks violate the model judicial cannon of ethics, and given the fact that she allowed 7 days of impact statements from victims who were not part of the charges he pled guilty to, as an officer of the court, I can conclude that her wanton waste of the taxpayer’s money was a means to help her get the day in the limelight that his bypass of a trial denied to her.

    I’m glad that so many feel vindicated by the judge’s remarks, but as a practitioner, I would have to file an affidavit of prejudice in any matter that I might have come before her, because she has clearly demonstrated both bias and judgement unbecoming for a judge.

    • Gail Boer says:

      Thanks for the perspective from a practicioner. I love what as a civilian who does not live in Ingham county but I see your point. And I am thinking the state judiciary may be displeased (then again I live in Kent Count) A couple questions counselor that I wondered about: will he start in Federal custody or State? And she did give a voice to the victims and I thought victim impact statements were normal?
