Last week, I watched the fierce and disgusted Judge Rosemarie Aquilina demonstrate what it was to be brave, human and call a spade a spade. She delighted in delivering a 175 year sentence to Larry Nassar, the disgraced US Gymnastics sports doctor. He was convicted for molesting over 250 underage girls over a 25 year career with US Gymnastics and Michigan University.
Judge Aquilina, uncharacteristically for a judge, made it glaringly clear to anyone watching and everyone participating, where she stood in this situation. She called it her privilege to sentence Nassar and in her words “sign his death warrant.”
