Therapy Dog Providing Comfort at Larry Nassar's Sentencing

Preston, a therapy dog, provides comfort as victims confront admitted sexual abuser Larry Nassar during his sentencing hearing in Ingham County Circuit Court.

LANSING — Preston, a therapy dog, wore a small blue tie Friday to day four of the sentencing hearing for Larry Nassar, a former sports-medicine osteopath who has admitted to committing sexual abuse.
Preston wears a blue bandanna whenever he's working as a canine advocate, though he'll sometimes add a tie to dress up the ensemble for court appearances.
"It's kind of a signal to him that he's on the clock, so to speak," said Alex Brace, executive director of Small Talk Children's Assessment Center, a Lansing-based nonprofit that serves children who are survivors of physical or sexual abuse. "Once he takes off his bandanna, it lets him know he can go back to being a puppy who's just wagging his tail and playing around."
