Ex USA Gymnastics Doctor Larry Nassar Pleads Guilty to Criminal Sexual Conduct

"For all those involved".

"I pray every day for forgiveness", he said. "I agree that now is a time of healing, but it may take them a lifetime of healing while you spend your life behind bars thinking of what you did by taking away their childhood".

Nassar, who lost his physician's license in April, admitted his conduct had no legitimate medical objective and that he did not have the girls' consent. He also pleaded guilty to federal charges involving child pornography, on which he is awaiting sentencing. Sentencing in that case is next month.

Maroney, Raisman and Douglas are just three of the more than 130 women who have come forward to accuse their former doctor of sexual abuse.

Judge Rosemarie Aquilina responded: "You used your position of trust in the most vile way: to abuse children. They are superheroes for all of America because this is an epidemic".

During the hearing, victims testified that Nassar sexually abused them while they sought medical attention for gymnastics injuries. Several accusers were angry with his apology.




"I think it can help us move on and like Christine said, we know that we're not insane, we weren't just making this up in our heads", she said. "He was such a master manipulator, and I think that's what's important for people to understand is that these monsters are so good at manipulating you so you're so brainwashed to think-I thought he was so nice". In response to questioning from the judge, he admitted that what he did to these young women and girls-several of the charges related to criminal sexual conduct against a minor under the age of 13-had no legitimate medical applications and that he done it exclusively for his own gratification. Women and girls said the stories inspired them to step forward with detailed allegations of abuse. And he was faculty at Michigan State University, where he treated girls like Boyce.

Last week, Douglas drew widespread criticism to a response she made to a tweet posted by Raisman, who said that men do not have a right to shame or sexually abuse women who choose to wear sexy outfits. The judge also said Wednesday that all Nassar victims will be allowed to speak at his sentencing.

In an interview with CBS' 60 Minutes that aired November 12, Raisman alleged she was one of the gymnasts who was sexually abused by Nassar. The school's gymnastics coach, Kathie Klages, was suspended and stepped down previous year.

"We've never been given the documents either in litigation or anywhere else to show who knew what when", said Manly, who added that Michigan State President Lou Anna Simon should resign if she does not release an internal report about the scandal.

In a brief statement to the court, Nassar said he believes pleading guilty is the best way he can "stop the hurting". Manly said the organization never informed Michigan State, however, which had investigated a complaint in 2014 only to clear Nassar. "Don't feel alone. No victim should".

During the hearing Ms. Raisman sent out a Twitter message describing Dr. Nassar as a "monster". "Any suggestion that the university covered up this conduct is simply false".
