  • Olympic gymnast Gabby Douglas latest to claim sexual abuse by Team USA doctor

Citing a source, the Associated Press (via the Chicago Sun-Times) reported Tuesday that Nassar will soon "plead guilty to multiple charges of sexual assault and face at least 25 years in prison".

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

As part of a plea agreement, Nassar admitted to seven counts of abuse.

"We many never know how many others may be suffering in silence therefore it is important for us to have an environment where it is safe and comfortable for those to come forward". "I support you Aly & all the other women out there", Biles wrote.

Gabby Douglas added her name to the long list of female gymnasts who said they were victims of Dr. Larry Nassar's sexual abuse in a post apologizing for her misguided comments last week. Other charges were dismissed or reduced as part of a plea agreement Larry Nasser made with MI prosecutors.

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.

USA Gymnastics adopted a new "safe sport policy" in response to the Nassar scandal that requires "mandatory reporting" of suspicions of sexual abuse.

She noted that she does not view her comments made toward Raisman as victim shaming because "I know that no matter what you wear, it NEVER gives anyone the right to harass or abuse you".

Denhollander accused the university, and the US Olympics and gymnastics organizations of being "unable to acknowledge" past failures.

A civil lawsuit has been filed on behalf of about 100 of Nassar's alleged victims.

Separately, Nassar is charged with similar crimes in Eaton County, the location of an elite gymnastics club.

The judge in the state case set a January 12 sentencing hearing, during which victims will be given an opportunity to speak. He is also awaiting sentencing after pleading guilty to federal child pornography charges in July, in which he targeted victims as young as six years old.
