Three members of the USA Gymnastics board resign

Three members of the USA Gymnastics board resign

In emotional testimony, 22-year-old Ms Wieber delivered her statement in court near Lansing, Michigan, on Friday.

The resignations of chairman Paul Parilla, vice chairman Jay Binder and treasurer Bitsy Kelley were announced Monday while Nassar victims spoke for a fifth day at a MI court hearing.

"I, too, was sexually assaulted by Larry Nassar - multiple times at multiple appointments", she said. "And just like he should have been, he was afraid". Nassar's sentencing could come as late as Wednesday.

Nassar is accused of sexually assaulting girls under the guise of medical treatment.

Prosecutors have asked for a sentence of 40 to 125 years for Nassar, 54, who was also a prominent physician at a Michigan State University sports clinic. The maximum sentence can be up to life in prison.

Gwen Anderson told the court that she's a middle-school teacher who hesitated about going public at the hearing because she didn't want her students to see her as a victim.

Victim #48 spoke anonymously last week.

This story will fade after this hearing ends, with a possible small resurgence when Nassar faces sentencing one more time. Part of that plea agreement is to let his accusers read impact statements to him.

Michigan State's gymnastics coach and another sports doctor quit under pressure past year. Their path to Nassar all varied.

She went on to note: 'The word Nassar will permanently be associated with child sexual abuse'.


Miller, the 15-year-old victim, said Monday that Nassar's legacy is forever ruined. She reported the abuse when she was 12, only to find that her parents didn't believe her.

"I may not be an Olympian or a Big Ten athlete, but I have a voice", Smith said. "They said it had changed their life trajectories affecting relationships, causing them to be distrustful and leading to depression, suicidal thoughts, and anger and anxiety about whether they should have spoken up sooner". "Since you "hope the right person was convicted" I wonder if you are a complete and total MORON or just a LIAR when you claim you listened to the impact statements".

Sobs were audible in the courtroom throughout the day, as well as the occasional collective gasp over a particularly shocking detail.

Almost every woman and girl to speak describes the abuse by Nassar, and the lasting trauma that followed. They've considered or attempted suicide.

Ms Wieber, standing next to her teammate Ms Raisman, told a MI court she was first molested by Nasser at age 14. "As coaches and officials governing our sport, why did they fail us?" It's not known yet when Nassar will be sentenced, as the judge has said she will give the chance to every survivor who wishes to speak.

But Emma Ann said she can support MSU if she chooses to. She said she was determined to make sure they were, but also struck a tone different from the others who have mentioned the university.

'MSU charged me for those appointments'. "I choose to protect them". "I can yell, "Go green".

"I'm possibly the last child he will ever assault", she said. For those charges, he received 60 years in prison. The judge will set the high and low end.

"It is impossibly hard to relive these experiences and it breaks my heart even more to think that as I work towards my dream of competing in Tokyo 2020, I will have to continually return to the same training facility where I was abused", she wrote.
