Former USA Gymnastics Doctor Pleads Guilty to Multiple Counts of Sexual Misconduct

Former USA Gymnastics Doctor Pleads Guilty to Multiple Counts of Sexual Misconduct”

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.

In addition to serving as USA Gymnastics physician through four Olympic Games, Nassar was the team physician for the Michigan State University gymnastics and women's crew teams as well as an associate professor at MSU's College of Osteopathic Medicine.

While the case against Nassar uncovered a decades-long sex abuse scandal within USA Gymnastics, the former president of the organization was forced to step down this year.

The institutions issued statements Wednesday after victims and their lawyers criticized their handling of Nassar, who pleaded guilty in a MI courtroom to molesting girls under the guise of medical treatment.

Nassar now faces a minimum of 25 years in prison as part of that same plea bargain.

"I'm so horribly sorry that this was like a match that turned into a forest fire out of control", Nassar said. "I want people to know that I really didn't know what was happening to me", Raisman said on the Today Show earlier in November. "We need to move forward in a sense of growth and healing and I pray (for) that".

"Court referring to Larry as DOCTOR Nassar".

Olympic gold medalists Aly Raisman and McKayla Maroney accused Nassar of sexually abused them when they were teenagers.

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".

Nassar is also awaiting sentencing on Monday on federal charges of receiving and possessing child pornography and attempted destruction of evidence to which he pled guilty in June.

The Michigan criminal cases against Nassar followed reports a year ago in the Indianapolis Star about how USA Gymnastics, which trains Olympians, mishandled complaints about sexual misconduct involving the doctor and coaches.
