Judge Rosemarie Aquilina of Lansing, MI; one of the Good Gals

 

The state of Michigan provided Rosemarie E. Aquilina with a law license in 1984 after she graduated from the Thomas M. Colley Law School.

 

In one matter, Judge Aquilina was assigned to preside over the case of former USA Gymnastics and Michigan State University doctor Larry Nassar, who is facing 10 counts of first-degree sexual misconduct involving more than 140 women who accused him of said criminal behavior.

 

Dr. Nassar had the chutzpah to pen a six-page letter to the court saying it was too difficult to listen to dozens of accusers deliver victim impact statements on how he sexually abused them. In his asinine letter, Nassar said:

  • “I’m very concerned about my ability to face witnesses these next four days, mentally.”
  • “Aquilina is allowing them all to talk.” Nassar wrote.
  • “She wants me to sit in the witness box next to her for all four days, so the media cameras will be directed at her.”

In response to Dr. Nassar’s lame attempt at levity in his six-page screed, Judge Aquilina said in part:

  • “This isn’t worth the paper it’s written on.”
  • “There’s no truth in here. It’s delusional.”

Judge Aquilina went on to tell Dr. Nassar:

  • “I didn’t ask any media to be here, and don’t need cameras.”
  • “I don’t have a dog in this fight, sir.”
  • “I didn’t orchestrate this ― you did, by your actions and your plea of guilty.”

Kudos to Judge Aquilina for have the courage and fortitude to tell Nassar the Felon that he’s basically a whining loser who lacks the backbone to listen to statements from his numerous victims.

 

As we speak (ca. September 2018), Judge Aquilina continues to sit as a Circuit Court Judge in Lansing, Michigan.
