The victims of Dr. Larry Nassar, the former USA gymnastics team doctor who was convicted of sexual abuse of athletes and gymnasts under his care, bravely confronted him during his sentencing on Tuesday.
Among those speaking out was Jennifer Rood Bedford, a former volleyball player at Michigan State who got emotional as she shared her horrific experience. But in addition to her heartbreaking testimony, she also offered Nassar forgiveness.
"I believe that what you have done—those choices you made—is not who God intended for you to be when he chose to bring you into this world," Bedford said directly to Nassar's face. "You can choose to be a better man, and to be a different person."
