Nassar's medical license revoked for 3 years

LANSING, MICH. - Larry Nassar's medical license has been revoked for three years and he must pay $100,000 before reapplying, a spokesman for the Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs said.

The decision was made on Thursday during a disciplinary hearing board meeting, said Michael Loepp, a spokesman for LARA.

Matt Newburg, one of Nassar's attorneys, declined to comment.

The state suspended Nassar's medical license in January after a complaint was filed by the Attorney General Bill Schuette's office that said between 1998 and 2005 Nassar sexually abused a girl who was younger than 13. Schuette's office also charged Nassar with three counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct in connection with the same incidents.

That criminal case is currently in Ingham County Circuit Court. Nassar faces 25 other criminal charges split between state and federal courts, including 22 sexual assault charges that relate to his role as a doctor.

Nassar worked for decades at MSU and with USA Gymnastics. The university fired him in September and he left USA Gymnastics in fall 2015 with little notice. More than 90 women and girls have filed lawsuits against MSU, USA Gymnastics and Nassar.
