Gymnastics doctor jailed for 60 years for child porn

Olympic gymnasts Gabby Douglas, McKayla Maroney, and Aly Raisman are only three of the 125 girls who said that they were victims of Nassar's abuse. "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".

Larry Nassar, the former MSU and USA Gymnastics doctor whose work took him to multiple Olympic games, was sentenced Thursday to 60 years in federal prison on child pornography charges to which he's admitted. "At times, I was unsure whether I would open her bedroom door and find her dead". News, Maroney and her mother Erin Maroney are speaking out against the alleged abuse.

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. My husband once questioned the propriety of the isolation of the girls during global travel. "The government said he had 37,000 images of child pornography, including images of children as young as infants", MLive reports. "No one has apologised", Erin wrote.

"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 ..."

"I didn't know anything differently", she said. She was only 15 years old.

Nassar is accused of sexual assaulting more than 140 women and girls, some of them hundreds of times, attorney's representing the victims said. Those accusations related to conduct with two minors in Nassar's swimming pool in the summer of 2015 and for "illicit sexual conduct" with two other minor children during interstate and worldwide travel, according to the plea agreement obtained by CNN.

After his guilty plea to criminal sexual conduct charges, attorneys representing more than 100 victims said USA Gymnastics, the US Olympic Committee and Michigan State University all "miserably failed" to protect those under their care. No one from the USOC has ever reached out to me or my husband or my daughter to inquire about her well being.

USA Gymnastics instituted dozens of changes in the wake of the scandal that the group says will help it prevent and respond to any future cases of abuse.

McKayla's testimony was a bit more measured, but no less pointed.

Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette this week urged Michigan State to release an internal investigation into the university's handling of the allegations.

"You have to wonder whether he felt he was omnipotent, whether he felt he was getting away with something so cleverly", U.S. District Judge Janet Neff said Thursday in a Grand Rapids, Mich., courtroom, according to the Lansing State Journal. This does not sit well for McKayla Maroney, who does not believe there should be a limit on Nassar's term.

Larry Nassar, 54, will likely spend the rest of his life in jail after being sentenced to 60 years on pornography crimes.

Nassar is a "monster" who "left scars on my psyche that may never go away", Maroney said in a letter to Neff.
