On Thursday, Nassar's victims were sharply critical of how Michigan State University and USA Gymnastics have responded to the former sports medicine doctor's actions.

Maroney has said that she was sexually abused by Nassar, who is facing several sexual assault charges and pled guilty this summer on charges of obtaining and possessing child pornography and destroying computer files to hamper a federal investigation.

"Soon after Larry pleaded guilty to federal child pornography charges, I was informed that I could submit a Victim Impact Statement to the court for sentencing consideration".

Nassar is also set to be sentenced in January in state court after pleading guilty to additional counts of criminal sexual conduct for assaulting girls under the guise of medical treatment.

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.

Nassar's sentencing could receive a minimum of 27 years in prison but in recent court filings, prosecutor's have asked the court to impose a 60-year sentence. I really did try to be a good person.

While the criminal penalties for Nassar will be decided over the next few weeks, the fallout for the organisations that employed him, or allowed him to volunteer his services and work with children, may have just begun.

"I was deeply saddened by the stories of my fellow Olympic teammates that suffered as I did at the hands of Larry Nassar". "Mr. Nassar was, is and, in my view, will continue to be a danger to children".

"I had a dream to go to the Olympics", Maroney wrote in October in alleging she was abused by Nassar, "and the things that I had to endure to get there, were unnecessary, and disgusting".

Former US Olympic gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar has been sentenced to 60 years jail.

“We intend to fight for justice for the victims, ” Manly said. After police took the trash back to the department and searched it, they found three other external hard drives in a small plastic bag. MI authorities arrested him last November, and in December, federal authorities added child pornography charges.

"After McKayla spoke with an investigator with USA Gymnastics in July 2015, USA Gymnastics and the USOC kept the knowledge of [Nassar's] status as a child molester secret from Michigan State University after 2015 and even said nothing when he ran for school board in his local school district!" At 14, she made the National Team and was introduced to Nassar.
