Olympic Gymnast Gabby Douglas Says Larry Nassar Sexually Abused Her Too

Gabby Douglas Releases New Statement on Abuse Allegations Against Larry Nassar

According to CNN, as of July, Nassar has been charged with a total of "22 counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct and 11 counts of third-degree criminal sexual conduct at the state level". He pleaded guilty Wednesday to sexually assaulting young athletes, including some girls under the age of 13.

Judge Rosemarie Aquilina oversaw the plea and responded to Nassar's remarks. Some of them were in court Wednesday morning, wiping away tears as they heard Nassar speak.

He added: "This was like a match that turned into a forest fire out of control". "I agree that now is a time of healing, but it may take them a lifetime of healing while you spend your lifetime behind bars thinking about what you did in taking away their childhood".

"I pray the rosary every day for forgiveness", he said at one point. "I want the community to heal".

But now Nassar, 54, is admitting to the sexual assaults.

Nassar also agreed to a lifetime of electronic monitoring. You violated the oath that you took, which is to do no harm, and you harmed them selfishly.

The comment was widely attacked as victim shaming, with Simone Biles, the 2016 all-around gold medalist, showing her disappointment in a post to Twitter in which she said it "shocks me that I'm seeing this but it doesn't surprise me".

She called the victims "superheroes for all of America, because this is an epidemic". "The hardest part was when he walked in and he stared at us".

North Korea says USA terror sponsor label a 'serious provocation'
Air China's decision came shortly after a visit by a senior Chinese envoy to the North Korean capital of Pyongyang. President Donald Trump's decision to label the North as a "sponsor of terror" came nine years after George W.

The former Team USA Gymnastics doctor, and also former Michigan State University gymnastics doctor, no longer holds a medical license.

She also said she's not buying his apology.

"That's our choice, not his", Jessica Smith said. They testified that he molested them, sometimes when a parent was present, after they sought treatment for gymnastics injuries.

"This was a man we trusted". But a school spokesman today says we recognize the pain sexual violence causes and deeply regret any time someone in our community experiences it.

"The fact that he just thinks, "Oh, I pleaded guilty and now you guys can start healing" is ridiculous to me. It's a such a horrifying thing to happen", said Raisman.

Nassar's attorneys, Matthew Newburg and Shannon Smith said the agreement was reached after extensive negotiations with the prosecution and with significant input from Nassar. As our client indicated in court today, he hopes that his guilty plea begins the healing process for those individuals whom have been the subject of the state criminal prosecution.

While Dr. Nassar's legal situation appears to be resolved in Ingham County, he faces similar charges in Eaton County, the location of an elite gymnastics club.

His sentencing is scheduled for January 12, 2018. She said officials kept Nassar in power for decades after ignoring repeated reports of sexual assaults and brushing off the victims as being unable to tell the difference between a medical exam and a sexual violation.
