More victims confront doctor

Another wave of victims confronted Larry Nassar on Wednesday, this time about sexual abuse at an elite Michigan gymnastics club where young athletes felt they had to use the disgraced doctor’s services and could not question the adults who ran the facility. The judge presiding over the case said the number of people who allege they were abused by Nassar has topped 265. That total includes 150-plus victims who offered statements at a different hearing last week, as well as scores of new ones expected to speak over the next few days. Nassar faces another long prison sentence on top of the two he has already received.

Pharmacist gets prison term

A Massachusetts pharmacist convicted for his role in a deadly 2012 meningitis outbreak fought through sobs as he apologized to victims and their families Wednesday before being sentenced to eight years in prison. Nearly 80 people died and almost 800 were sickened in what’s considered the worst public health crisis in recent U.S. history. The fungal meningitis outbreak was caused by mold-tainted steroid injections produced by the New England Compounding Center. Glen Chinn, who ran the so-called clean rooms where the drugs were made, sobbed as he struggled through his statement during his sentencing hearing in Boston’s federal courthouse.

GREENWOOD, Miss.

New job for disgraced host

The radio host fired after he lost a groping lawsuit to superstar Taylor Swift says he is “very grateful” for a new gig at a Mississippi station. David Mueller tells the Greenwood Commonwealth that he had difficulty finding work in a big-city radio market. He started his job Monday in Greenwood, home to about 14,000 people. A federal jury determined Mueller assaulted and battered Swift by grabbing her under her skirt as they posed for a 2013 photo in Denver. Mueller, who goes by “Jackson” on air, still denies that. He began co-hosting the Jackson and Jonbob show Monday. The Washington Post quotes Delta Radio CEO David Fuss saying he believes Mueller’s side of the story.
