By the time sentencing hearing proceedings end on Friday, approximately 100 women who allege Nassar sexual assaulted them will have given their testimonies before the court.

“(County Court Judge Rosemarie Aquilina) is allowing them all to talk,” Nassar wrote, according to NBC News. “She wants me to sit in the witness box next to her for all four days so the media cameras will be directed at her.”
