Larry Nassar, Former USA Gymnastics Doctor, Pleads Guilty to Sexual Assault

Larry Nassar, Former USA Gymnastics Doctor, Pleads Guilty to Sexual Assault

The state Attorney General's office issued a statement during the hearing that stated 125 victims contacted about the plea agreement were satisfied with it. Douglas was criticised last week after an apparent barb directed at Raisman, who recently revealed she was sexually assaulted by USA team doctor Larry Nassar, who is facing multiple charges of abuse.

Michigan State University says allegations that it covered up a former gymnastics doctor's criminal sexual misconduct are "simply false" and it is "appalled" by Larry Nassar's crimes. The Olympic gymnasts are not part of the MI cases.

In a statement after the plea in court on Wednesday, Vassar's attorneys, Matt Newburg and Shannon Smith, said that the "agreement resolves all the charged and uncharged conduct for more than 125 cases now under investigation by the Michigan Attorney General's office".

"For all those involved, I'm so horribly sorry that this was like a match that turned into a forest fire out of control", he said.

He faces up to 25 years in prison. "I have no animosity toward anyone".

The Michigan criminal cases against Nassar followed reports previous year in the Indianapolis Star about how USA Gymnastics, which trains Olympians, mishandled complaints about sexual misconduct involving the doctor and coaches. I just want healing. "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."It would be like saying that because of the leotards we wore, it was our fault that we were abused by Larry Nassar". On Monday, Nassar will appear in court once again for a hearing regarding federal-level charges of receiving and possessing child pornography.

Judge Rosemarie Aquilina admonished the former doctor, telling him, "You used that position of trust that you had in the most vile way - to abuse children".

Athletes who were sexually assaulted by a former gymnastics doctor say Michigan State University, USA Gymnastics and the U.S. Olympic Committee failed to stop the abuse and allowed dozens more girls to be molested.
