USA Gymnastics won't seek fine if McKayla Maroney discusses abuse


"USA Gymnastics has not sought and will not seek any money from McKayla Maroney for her courageous statements made in describing her victimization and abuse by Larry Nassar, nor for any victim impact statements she wants to make to Larry Nassar at this hearing or at any subsequent hearings related to his sentencing".

Gina Nichols was the first woman to speak on Wednesday when she delivered the impact statement on behalf of her daughter Maggie, who was "Athlete A" and the first first to report sexual abuse by Nassar to USA Gymnastics in 2015. Many cried as they told their stories on the hearing's first day, and some requested anonymity.

The 54-year-old Nassar, who served as USA Gymnastics physician for almost 30 years and through four Olympic Games, pleaded guilty to seven counts of criminal sexual conduct.

Raisman has been withering in her criticism of USA Gymnastics, which she has said is "100% responsible" for the abuse suffered by dozens of young girls over two decades.

Lawsuit states scalpel left inside CT veteran for 4 years
In the lawsuit, Turner says he underwent a robotic-assisted laparoscopic prostatectomy at the West Haven VA on August 30, 2013. During the imaging study, Turner "began to experience severe, worsened abdominal pain" and the procedure had to be stopped.

In December, a federal judge sentenced Nassar to 60 years in prison for possessing thousands of images of child pornography.

"They grow into strong women that ... destroy your world".

It tore Stephens' family apart because her parents believed Nassar over her when she finally told her them about the abuse, six years after it started.

USA Gymnastics has not responded to Raisman's tweet, but back in November the organization said it was "appalled by the conduct of which Larry Nassar is accused" and "very sorry that any athlete has been harmed during her or his gymnastics career". Maroney already has said on Twitter that she was abused by Nassar as early as age 13.

She said while there is no amount of time Nassar can be given to fix the damage he's done to her, Stephens urged the judge to give him a minimum of 40 years instead of the 25 years allowed under the plea agreement.

Tuesday, several of Nassar's victims addressed him in court. The judge reassured each of them of their worthiness, that their voice matters and called them courageous and strong survivors for coming forward.

Olympians McKayla Maroney and Gabby Douglas also have said they were among Nassar's victims when they were teenagers. "We are all in this together".
