Larry Nassar, Ex-USA Gymnastics Doctor, Sentenced To 60 Years In Prison

Former U.S. Olympians McKayla Maroney, Aly Raisman and Gabby Douglas are three of many woman to accuse Nassar of sexual assault and disgusting his abuse as treatments. "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". My husband once questioned the propriety of the isolation of the girls during global travel.

Investigators discovered Nassar's child porn collection during their probe into the sex assault charges.

"She was transformed from a bubbly, positive, loving, world-class athlete into a young adult who was deeply depressed, at times suicidal", Erin Maroney wrote.

Nassar's attorneys had asked the federal judge for leniency in court filings, arguing Nassar had helped fellow inmates and taken Bible classes since his arrest almost a year ago, the State Journal said. 'More safe than the President of the United States of America, ' he said to him.

Erin Maroney also detailed one graphic incident.

"I ... learned a few weeks ago from my daughter that at the world championships in Tokyo, [Nassar] drugged her, made her lay nude on a treatment table, straddled her and digitally penetrated her while rubbing his erect penis against her ..." She was only 15 years old.

USA Gymnastics, which oversees and trains the national team, is also a defendant in several of the lawsuits women have brought against Nassar.

"I didn't know anything differently", she said. He served as the USA Gymnastics physician through four Olympic Games. Separately, he has pleaded guilty to molesting gymnasts with his hands in the Lansing, Michigan, area under the guise of treatment.

Nassar, who worked with USA Gymnastics for almost three decades as a trainer and medical coordinator, could receive a minimum sentence of 27 years, but prosecutors want a 60-year prison term.

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. "He abused my trust, abused my body and left scars on my psyche that may never heal", she wrote.

McKayla Maroney, a member of the 2012 gold medal Olympic team, attended the court hearing after describing Nassar as a “monster” in a letter to U.S. District Judge Janet Neff.

McKayla Maroney's letters to the judge presiding over Dr. Larry Nassar's case, coupled with her mum's, detail years of sexual abuse that changed the woman she's become.
