Larry Nassar, a former doctor for USA Gymnastics and Michigan State University, pleaded guilty to multiple charges of sexual assault. He faces a sentence of at least 25 years in prison.

Lanes near Burbank Boulevard are expected to remain closed until about 9 a.m. The Burbank Police Department issued a traffic advisory, saying drivers should expect "significant delays" and use the 170 and 210 freeways to get around the tie-up.

Zimbabwe's incoming leader Emmerson Mnangagwa emerged from hiding Wednesday, departing from neighboring South Africa to return home in preparation to take power after Robert Mugabe's stunning resignation.
The 75-year-old Mnangagwa fled Zimbabwe after Mugabe fired him earlier this month, leading the military to move in and kick off a series of extraordinary events ending in Mugabe stepping down Tuesday amid impeachment proceedings.
Mnangagwa met with South African President Jacob Zuma in a jovial "courtesy call" before taking a private jet from Johannesburg to Zimbabwe's capital, Harare. He went to ruling party headquarters to be briefed by officials.

A 3-year-old Waterbury, Connecticut, boy is dead and three people, including a 1-year-old girl, have serious injuries after a teen driver fled from police and hit several pedestrians, according to state police.
State police said Waterbury officers were attempting to stop an 18-year-old driving a silver Acura before the car collided with a Toyota Corolla at the intersection of South Main Street and East Liberty Street around 3:45 p.m.
The teen's Acura went off the road and onto the sidewalk after the collision, hitting several pedestrians and the car came to a stop, state police said.
Days after accusing music mogul Russell Simmons of sexual assault in a detailed Los Angeles Times report, model Keri Claussen Khalighi appeared on "Megyn Kelly Today" Wednesday to shed more light on what she called the "terrifying moment" and why it has taken her years to tell her story.
Khalighi, now 43, said that she had dinner with Simmons and director Brett Ratner in New York City in 1991 when she was 17. The three of them went back to Simmons' apartment afterward, ostensibly to watch a music video, where Simmons coerced her to perform oral sex while Ratner watched, despite her pleas for help.
"I fought it wildly," Khalighi told the Times.
Simmons disputed her account in a statement to the Times, calling the interaction consensual, and Ratner's attorney said he had "no recollection" of her asking for help.

Silent for more than a week, President Donald Trump all but endorsed embattled Alabama Republican Senate nominee Roy Moore on Tuesday, discounting the sexual assault allegations against him and insisting repeatedly that voters must not support Moore's "liberal" rival.
The president said he would announce next week whether he will campaign for Moore, who faces Democrat Doug Jones in a Dec. 12 special election to fill the seat once held by Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
Trump, who won election despite facing more than a dozen accusations of sexual misconduct himself, dismissed questions from reporters about backing a Republican accused of sexual assault over a man who is a Democrat. Trump pointed to Moore's assertions that he did nothing wrong.

Olympic gold medalist Gabby Douglas revealed in an Instagram post on Tuesday that she was abused by former team doctor Larry Nassar, who is expected to plead guilty to criminal charges on Wednesday, NBC News reported.
The disclosure came in a new apology for a tweet last week in which Douglas said, in a response to Raisman talking about sexual abuse victims, that women have a responsibility to dress modestly because "dressing in a provocative/sexual way entices the wrong crowd." She later apologized on Twitter.
"I didn't view my comments as victim shaming because I know that no matter what you wear, it NEVER gives anyone the right to harass or abuse you," she wrote in her Instagram statement.

The deaths of at least four fraternity pledges this year have helped fuel a re-examination of Greek life at U.S. colleges, which have long struggled with how to crack down on hazing, alcohol abuse and other unwelcome aspects without disbanding organizations that have loyal members and alumni.
Changing attitudes, increased public scrutiny and fears of facing lawsuits also have caused schools to take action, anti-hazing advocates say. Tracy Maxwell, founder of HazingPrevention.org and a longtime Greek life consultant, sees parallels with the national discussion about sexual harassment.
"People are at a breaking point, where they're not willing to accept behavior that has been acceptable in some circles for decades or centuries," she said.
