Her words struck a chord on social media with many calling her ' a fierce advocate' for the victims of Nassar.
After the trial, Judge Aquilina was approached to run for the State Supreme Court. After taking some time to decide the Judge finally decided that now is not the time for to start a campaign, she has to keep her family priorities in order.
Aquilina said that she doesn't want to do anything that might be perceived as benefiting from the Nassar case.
