Texas Rangers probe facility the place Larry Nassar handled athletes

Investigation into Karolyi Ranch ordered by Governor Abbott

The facility - which has already had its relationship with USA gymnastics terminated - employed Larry Nassar, who was sentenced earlier this month in MI to 40-175 years in prison after accepting a plea deal for his sexual crimes.

The Texas governor also commended the Walker County Sheriff's Office for their diligence in an ongoing probe into the Karolyi Ranch sexual abuse allegations, although he added that the Texas Rangers will bring top-notch investigative muscle and expertise to the multi-state case.

USA Gymnastics announced on January 18 that it had terminated its agreement to have the ranch outside of Huntsville serve as the National Training Center for the women's elite program. "The people of Texas demand, and the victims deserve, nothing less", said Abbott.

"There is an eerie feeling as soon as you step foot onto the Karolyi Ranch", Larson said during victim-impact statements at Nassar's sentencing hearing last week. He has already been sentenced to 40 to 175 years in Ingham County in a separate case, and to 60 years in prison on federal child pornography charges.

Governor of Texas Greg Abbott on Tuesday ordered investigation into sexual assault allegations at a gymnastic facility in the state. They said Nassar molested them during monthly training camps at the ranch. "Considering that criminal action has been implicated across multiple jurisdictions and states, it is essential that the Texas Rangers work with the Walker County Sheriff's Office to comprehensively investigate all potential criminal conduct", noted Abbott.

Several of the women who spoke out about Nassar said he earned their trust by playing the "good cop" alongside demanding and demeaning coaches, including ranch owners and former Olympic coaches Bela and Marta Karolyi.

Olympic gold medalist that she was sexually abused at the famed ranch. Maggie Nichols, Jantzi's star gymnast who, at 14, made the USA women's national team, was speaking with Aly Raisman, captain of the 2012 and 2016 gold-medal-winning Olympic teams.

She said he would give her desserts as treats, which were forbidden at the ranch, where the Karolyis closely monitored what the gymnasts ate.
