Former USA Gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar was sentenced to 40 to 175 years in prison for sexual abuse Wednesday.

More than 150 women spoke about the abuse committed by Nassar at his seven-day sentencing hearing. Oklahoma sophomore Maggie Nichols is one of the victims of Nassar's abuse, and she was the first to report his abuse to USA Gymnastics. Nichol's mother, Gina, spoke at the hearing on her behalf.

Earlier this week, members of the USA Gymnastics Board of Directors resigned after facing pressure to do so because of the Nassar scandal.
