McKayla Maroney: Larry Nassar molested me 'hundreds' of times

Larry Nassar is facing an additional 40-to-125 ears in prison on top of his 60-year sentence for child pornography charges

Nassar told her at the time that she was receiving "medically necessary treatment he had been performing on patients for over 30 years", she said at the time. She also chastised Michigan State officials who she said have turned victims away and are "still refusing to admit what the problem is and that they're accountable for it".

Wieber is among the athletes who have filed individual lawsuits against the U.S. Olympic organization and Michigan State University. She says the abuse spanned between 2006 and 2012, her medical records were destroyed, and she and her teammates "were not protected".

Her revelations were soon followed by Simone Biles, Gabby Douglas, Aly Raisman, Jordyn Wieber and dozens more whom Nassar abused over two decades at Michigan State University, where he was a respected faculty member celebrated for his two-decade body of work with the United States' world-beating women's gymnastics team.

Authorities say Nassar victimized more than 260 women, including several of Maroney's Olympic team mates.

And she blamed gymnastics authorities for their support of the coach. We are deeply sorry for abuse the survivors suffered at the hands of Larry Nassar and are working to make sure that something like this can never happen again.

"He was allowed to treat us in hotel rooms alone and without any supervision".

She said speaking out about her experience in October, amid the #MeToo movement, took a weight off her shoulders. "Nobody was even concerned whether or not we were being sexually abused", she said. "They demanded excellence from me, but they couldn't give it to us".

Wieber talked about a "culture of silence" that was more interested in winning or reputation than in protecting athletes.

Recalling how Nassar touched her over her leotards in the middle of a gym without anyone reacting on one occasion, Dantzcher said, "I know it's still going on".

Wieber alleges that former USA Gymnastics president Steve Penny and former chairman Paul Parilla "failed to disclose and hid former Olympic Team and MSU team doctor Nassar's criminal conduct from the public and law enforcement by virtue of defendants' conspiratorial and fraudulent conduct".
