Authorities Investigating Gym Coach and Nassar Associate John Geddert Over Abuse Allegations

Father Who Attacked Larry Nassar Speaks Out About The Incident Victims' father tries to attack Larry Nassar at Michigan sentencing hearing

An astonishing 250-plus women and girls gave statements in two MI courtrooms over 10 days of proceedings.

In the meantime, Nassar continued to see young female athletes, especially gymnasts, or dancers while working at Michigan State University. USA Gymnastics' chief executive resigned past year, and last month the organization's entire board of directors resigned.

Mr Geddert has previously claimed he had "no knowledge" of what Mr Nassar was doing.

Gymnasts will be required to be chaperoned by someone other than their coaches at four upcoming events, according to an email obtained by USA TODAY Sports that was sent this weekend to USA Gymnastics staff members, coaches and parents.

"We have had people coming forward, and our investigation is ongoing", Eaton County Sheriff spokeswoman Jerri Nesbitt told AFP. Even then, that report did not result in criminal charges. Nassar pled guilty to the charges last November.

USA Gymnastics suspended Geddert on January 22, according to ESPN.

Rachael Denhollander, who, in 2016, was the first person to publicly accuse Nassar of misconduct, asked the court on Friday.

"Let me at that son of a b--h", Margraves said.

Some victims say the abuse occurred decades ago.

He is also sentenced in nearby Ingham County to up to 175 years for similar crimes.

Nassar spoke briefly before his sentence was handed down. "It's impossible to convey the depth and breadth of how sorry I am to each and everyone involved".

The 54-year-old Nassar has admitted that he molested girls and young women during his time also working at Michigan State University and USA Gymnastics, which trains Olympians. Some of the cases date back to the 1990s.

Cunningham says Nassar's conduct "spans the country and the world".

"I feel like a weigh is lifted off my shoulders, this huge burden that was weighing on me for so many years", she said. She said Nassar's abuse ruined her body and the sport she loved. "The words expressed by everyone that has spoken, including the parents, have impacted me to my innermost core".

"We are taught to trust". Michigan State, the school which employed Nassar, is facing lawsuits from more than 140 alleged victims. "Regardless of their profession, he fooled them all".

The Nassar controversy has cast a shadow over Michigan State, with Michigan State president Lou Anna Simon resigning and athletic director Mark Hollis retiring.

Makayla Thrush, a former Twistars gymnast, accused the coach of pushing her into a training apparatus so hard she suffered torn stomach muscles.
