Doctor Larry Nassar is set to plead guilty to sexually assaulting dozens of young athletes.
Nassar is expected in court Wednesday, just a day after another gymnast came forward with accusations. Olympic gymnast Gabby Douglas said she’s also a victim of sexual abuse from Nassar. She posted to Instagram:
“I didn’t publicly share my experiences as well as many other things because for years we were conditioned to stay silent and honestly some things were extremely painful.”
Douglas is the third member of the USA’s gold-winning 2012 Olympic team to come forward. Ally Raisman called Nassar a monster.
“I think he’s a monster and I think it’s so disturbing what he did to me and to so many other people. This is so much bigger than just me. It’s a such a horrifying thing to happen,” said Raisman.
Nassar is accused of sexually assaulting hundreds of girls while he served as team doctor for Team USA, Michigan State University and for a gymnastics center in Dimondale, Mich. However, despite the hundreds of victims who have come forward, Wednesday’s plea deal only focuses on a few victims such as Rachel Denhollander, who described the abuse when she was in court.
