Ingham County Judge Rosemarie Aquilina is setting a whole week aside for the sentencing of Larry Nassar.

The former MSU and USA Gymnastics doctor pleaded guilty last month to seven counts of criminal sexual conduct.

Sentencing was originally set for Friday, January 12, 2018. It will now take place Tuesday the 16th, with the rest of the week set aside for victim impact statements. More than 125 of Nassar's victims have been invited to speak.

Nassar reached a plea deal with the Michigan Attorney General's office. It set a sentencing range of 25 to 40 years, with a maximum of life in prison. The AG's office agreed not to bring additional charges.
