LANSING, MI (WILX) - Tonight the judge famous for letting 156 of Larry Nassar's victims speak at his sentencing appeared on NBC Nightly News.

Ingham County Judge Rosemarie Aquilina sat down with NBC's Cynthia McFadden as part of a series of reports entitled "Her Take."

During the interview, the judge talked about the unusual Nassar sentencing hearing, and how her life has changed since.

I don't get through the grocery store as quickly 'cause people stop me all the time."

She was asked what they say?

"Thank you. And probably 90% of them say, "Me too. They hug me. Some people cry. And they all have a story, and many of them were not believed."
