McKayla Maroney Opens Up About Ex-USA Doctor's Alleged Sexual Abuse

McKayla Maroney Opens Up About Ex-USA Doctor's Alleged Sexual Abuse

Nassar in July pleaded guilty in federal court in western MI after investigators found more than 37,000 images of child porn on his electronic devices. It all started when I was 13 or 14 years old, at one of my first National Team training camps, in Texas, and it didn't end until I left the sport.

A MI sports doctor who admits he molested gymnasts and kept a staggering collection of child pornography is getting the first of three prison sentences that will likely keep him locked up for decades.

McKayla said in her letter that she may never fully recover from the trauma. She wrote that she and McKayla's father "were not allowed to stay with McKayla" while traveling and "sometimes we were not even in the same hotel".

Michigan State fired Nassar last September.

While the criminal penalties for Nassar will be decided over the next few weeks, the fallout for the organizations that employed him, or allowed him to volunteer his services and work with children, may have just begun. "Because the national team training camps did not allow parents to be present, my mom and dad were unable to observe what Nassar was doing".

Maroney and Olympians Aly Raisman and Gabby Douglas have said that they too were assaulted by Nassar, who worked with USA Gymnastics as a trainer and medical coordinator. My husband once questioned the propriety of the isolation of the girls during worldwide travel.

"She was transformed from a bubbly, positive, loving, world-class athlete into a young adult who was deeply depressed, at times suicidal", Erin Maroney wrote. He was assured by Steve Penny that the girls were safe at all times. For me, the scariest night of my life happened when I was 15 years old. "At times, I was unsure whether I would open her bedroom door and find her dead".

In still-pending lawsuits related to Nassar's admitted crimes, more than 140 women or girls have said Nassar assaulted them, often during medical appointments. "We now know that this was a lie".

One incredibly disturbing incident allegedly occurred when Maroney competed in the 2011 world championships in Tokyo.

"At this point, he truly has nothing to lose", she said.

Michigan State has commissioned an internal review of how university employees responded to suspicions about Nassar, but had planned to keep that review confidential, drawing criticism from victims and their attorneys.

Larry Nassar worked at Michigan State University and USA Gymnastics, which trains Olympians. Not once. No one has apologized.

Nassar was sacked from Michigan State University in September 2016, and USA Gymnastics, which trains Olympians, cut ties in 2015. Later reports by the State Journal identified similar shortcomings at MSU: Between 1997 and 2015, at least seven women or girls say they raised concerns about Nassar's actions to coaches, trainers, police or university officials. "He abused my trust, abused my body and left scars on my psyche that may never heal", she wrote.

Michigan State has vehemently denied any allegations of covering up Nassar's behavior. He's also pleaded guilty to sexual assault charges in both Ingham and Eaton counties and could be sentenced to up to life in prison in those cases when he's sentenced next month.
