Katelyn Nassar’s Mother Gained Parental Rights In 2017
After two decades of Larry Nassar’s sexual abuse, it was not until 2015 that his pathetic behavior came to the limelight. His wife, Stephanie Nassar, filed for divorce in January 2017 at Ingham County Circuit Court.
During the hearings in June 2017, one of Larry’s attorneys, Shannon Smith, said the state’s petition didn’t contain the charges of his alleged abuse against his three kids, including Katelyn. But, the chief attorney authorized the petition citing there ‘could be a risk to the children in the future,’ per LANSING.
The state then terminated Larry’s parental rights. The state granted a divorce and gave full custody of Katelyn and her siblings, Ryan and Caroline, to their mother, Stephanie.
