USA Gymnastics Board Members Resign Amid Larry Nassar Sexual Abuse Scandal

"Realizing you are a survivor of sexual abuse is really hard to put into words", she told the court.

Miller, 15, inhaled deeply and hugged her mother, steadying herself to keep from crying before she described how she was assaulted in a supply closet by Nassar during a medical appointment in August 2016. She called out all of the institutions and individuals who had knowledge of Nassar's disgusting behavior dating back to 1997, but did nothing.

Nassar has admitted to molesting young athletes and has taken a plea deal. Raisman spoke for nearly 12 minutes, not only going after Nassar but going after USA Gymnastics and the U.S. Olympic Committee for enabling his behavior. Angela Povilaitis, the assistant attorney general of MI, told Aquilina at the start of court on Monday that 99 victims had already spoken or had their statements read.

"I'm possibly the last child he will ever assault", she said.

More young women and girls who say they were assaulted by a MI sports doctor are due in court for a fifth day to make victim statements before he is sentenced. "But you accepted the position of president and CEO of USA Gymnastics, and I assume by now you are very well aware of the weighty responsibility you've taken on", Raisman said in her statement. He was previously sentenced to 60 years in prison in December, after he pleaded guilty in July to child pornography charges.

USA Gymnastics also said in the Monday statement it will work to promote athlete safety and prevent future abuse by adopting and enforcing its new "safe sport" policy that more clearly defines misconduct and prevents inappropriate interaction. USA Gymnastics needs to focus on supporting the courageous survivors.

Three USA Gymnastics board members have stepped down as more assault victims testify against Larry Nassar.

She suggested that Nassar use an opportunity to speak at the end of the hearing to detail all of the people who could or should have stopped him during the last several decades.

On Thursday, USA Gymnastics terminated its agreement with the Karolyi Ranch in Huntsville, Texas, where a number of top gymnasts said they were victims of Nassar's sexual abuse.

"Do the right thing for us".

"He knew what was coming", Miller told Aquilina. We got this. Like, stop asking us questions. Make your last public act actually help someone.

The Karolyi Ranch, a suburban Houston layout once famed as a breeding ground of champions, will no longer serve as a training site for top gymnasts, USA Gymnastics announced last week, the facility holding too many horrific memories for too many United States athletes. It's not clear yet if he will choose to do so.
