Federal Judge Janet Neff followed the government's recommended sentence Thursday.
Nassar initially pleaded not guilty to possessing the child pornography.
Instead, McKayla and her mother Erin Maroney chose to testify in the form of letters, which have been made public, addressed to the federal judge presiding the case, ESPN reports.
Nassar was the USA Gymnastics team doctor, as well as the doctor for the Michigan State University gymnastics team, and a MSU professor. Maroney, like 2012 teammates Aly Raisman and Gabby Douglas, has said that Nassar sexually molested under the guise of medical treatment while she was competing on the US national team.

Erin wrote that she and her husband were not allowed to stay with McKayla when she was travelling overseas, sometimes not even in the same hotel.
Erin and her husband were told they were not allowed to stay with their daughter at competitions overseas nor on the Karyoli Ranch, the U.S. team's training centre in Huntsville, Texas named after former coaches Bela and Marta Karyoli, where McKayla says Nassar first abused her. She was only 15 years old.
"She has transformed from a bubbly, positive, loving, world-class athlete into a young adult who was deeply depressed, at times suicidal. At times, I was unsure whether I would open her bedroom door and find her dead". "Because the National Team training camps did not allow parents to be present, my mom and dad were unable to observe what Nassar was doing, and this has imposed a awful and undeserved burden of guilt on my loving family". At 14, she made the National Team and was introduced to Nassar.
A federal judge in MI has sentenced former Olympics girls gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar to 60 years in prison for possessing thousands of images of child pornography.
In lawsuits, two gymnasts have alleged they complained to Klages in 1997 about Nassar's treatment, to no avail.
Some of the Maroneys' most cutting words went to Team USA and Michigan State, which previously employed Nassar.
Michigan State has commissioned an internal review of how university employees responded to suspicions about Nassar, but had planned to keep that review confidential, drawing criticism from victims and their attorneys. Neff ruled that Nassar's federal sentence would run consecutive to whatever prison time he receives for the sexual assault cases.
"I had a dream to go to the Olympics", Maroney wrote in October in alleging she was abused by Nassar, "and the things that I had to endure to get there, were unnecessary, and disgusting".
