Sexual Molester Plays Victim Following Testimonies In USA Gymnastics Sex Abuse Scandal

Sexual Molester Plays Victim Following Testimonies In USA Gymnastics Sex Abuse Scandal

The court has been hearing emotional victim impact statements for days already, but many more survivors are expected to speak. Thursday was day three.

Another statement came from Donna Markham, who told of how her 23-year-old daughter Chelsey killed herself in 2009, years after Nassar sexually abused her during a medical examination. USA Gymnastics had announced plans to buy the Karolyi Ranch previous year but backed out of the deal in May, citing, among other reasons, "unexpected financial expenditures associated with the purchase". Stars like Chrissy Teigen offered to pay the penalty but ultimately US Gymnastics said they wouldn't pursue the fine.

Maroney's statement detailed how, growing up, the gym was her "home away from home".

"I did it. I got there", Maroney's statement began, per MLive.

"Let's be clear. The only reason this statement was issued is because people were outraged at USAG's behavior toward Ms. Maroney and her family", he said.

First he accused the judge of inviting a media circus, noting that cameras have been present throughout the hearing and speculating that Aquilina was simply seeking attention.

"I've probably sent well over 100 kids to him over the years. It didn't end until I left the sport".

Olympic gymnast McKayla Maroney is suing USA Gymnastics, the U.S. Olympic Committee and Michigan State University, where Nassar also served, over a nondisclosure agreement she signed in December 2016, agreeing to stay quiet about the abuse she experienced.

"The tables have turned, Larry".

"(County Court Judge Rosemarie Aquilina) is allowing them all to talk", Nassar wrote according to NBC News. This was also how the 140 other female athletes described the abuse in their complaint against the doctor.

Larry Nassar told a circuit court judge in a letter this week that he wasn't sure if he was mentally able to handle facing a week of comments from the women he has admitted to abusing for decades.

Nassar, who is now serving a 60-year sentence in federal prison for possession of child pornography, also accused Aquilina of using the trial for "seeking media attention."She wasn't having a bar of it. "Writing this mumbo jumbo?"

"This isn't worth the paper it's written on".
