Former USA Gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar was sentenced to 60 years in prison on Thursday for child pornography.

Nassar, 54, who is also facing sentencing for sexually assaulting members of the women’s Olympics gymnastics team, pleaded guilty in July to three counts of possessing child pornography.

The pornography, which included more than 37,000 of images and videos depicting children as young as infants, was discovered last year while Nassar was under investigation for assault.

He was given 20 years in prison on each count by a judge at a court hearing in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

‘This is very difficult, as you can imagine, standing here,’ Nassar said in court on Thursday.

‘I’ve been battling with this, obviously for a considerable period of time. It’s something, your honor, I’m very ashamed of… I’ve lost everything because of this… You wonder how I got down this path to begin with.’
