Olympic star Aly Raisman in court to face abuser Larry Nassar

No Comments

By Michael Dobuski

ABC News(LANSING, Mich.) — Olympic gymnastics star Aly Raisman showed up in a Michigan courtroom Friday to face down Larry Nassar, the former doctor who molested her and scores of other elite female athletes.

Raisman, 23, appeared in Ingram County Circuit Court in Lansing and took a seat in the courtroom gallery, just feet away from the Nassar.

Initially, a prosecutor was expected to read a statement from her. But her presence at the hearing indicated she might address Nassar directly.

Nassar pleaded guilty in November to sexually assaulting seven girls, but Judge Rosemarie Aquilina is allowing many more victims to speak in court.

The disgraced doctor has already been sentenced to 60 years in prison after pleading guilty to federal child pornography charges. He has been accused of sexual misconduct by more than 125 women and girls in civil lawsuits.

Among the young women who say they were molested by Nassar are Olympic medalists McKayla Maroney, Gabby Douglas, Jamie Dantzscher and Simone Biles.

USA Gymnastics cuts ties with Karolyi Ranch training facility

Photo by Bob Levey/Getty Images for Hilton(NEW YORK) — USA Gymnastics on Thursday announced that it will cut ties with the Karolyi Ranch, the training ground for the country’s elite gymnasts and one of the sites where former team doctor Larry Nassar sexually assaulted gymnasts.

“It has been my intent to terminate this agreement since I began as president and CEO in December,” said Kerry Perry. “Our most important priority is our athletes, and their training environment must reflect this.”

“We have cancelled next week’s training camp for the U.S. women’s national team,” Perry added. “We are exploring alternative sites to host training activities and camps until a permanent location is determined.”

Gold medalist Simone Biles has said in recent days that Nassar abused her at the Karolyi ranch, and questioned why she should return there to train.

“It is impossibly difficult 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,” Biles wrote.

Nassar pleaded guilty to 10 counts of criminal sexual conduct in November. More than 150 women have accused him of assault.
