Disgraced Team USA Doctor Larry Nassar Pleads Guilty to Seven Assault Charges

Disgraced Team USA Doctor Larry Nassar Pleads Guilty to Seven Assault Charges

The former doctor for the US Olympic gymnastics team has pleaded guilty to seven charges of sexual assault against women placed under his medical care.

Nassar admitted in court to wielding his position as a respected doctor as a way to abuse the girls-something Raisman was especially vocal about when she opened up about her own allegations against Nassar.

Nassar acknowledged that he assaulted the young women.

Douglas later apologised, and in a further statement on Tuesday captioned "Please hear my heart", said her remarks were not intended as a criticism of Raisman."First, I want to reiterate my apology for responding the way that I did to a comment that one of my teammates posted", Douglas wrote. "I agree that now is a time of healing, but it may take them a lifetime of healing while you spend your life behind bars thinking of what you did by taking away their childhood".

"I'm so sorry that this was like a match that turned into a forest fire, out of control", Nassar said in his plea.

Forecast: Chilly Week Ahead With Some Rain
High temperatures will gradually warm Wednesday through Friday , as we'll have afternoon highs in the mid to upper 70s. For Monday , we will have the typical morning clouds then partly cloudy skies as we move through the day.

Nassar now faces a minimum of 25 years in prison as part of that same plea bargain. "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's representative later confirmed to USA Today that the gymnast had been one of Nassar's victims".

Do you think Larry Nassar's plea was enough?

Separately, Nassar is also awaiting sentencing on federal charges of receiving child pornography, possessing child pornography and a charge that he hid and destroyed evidence in the case.

Judge Rosemarie Aquilina said Nassar said sexual abuse was a nationwide 'epidemic'.

Athletes who were sexually assaulted by a former gymnastics doctor say Michigan State University, USA Gymnastics and the U.S. Olympic Committee failed to stop the abuse and allowed dozens more girls to be molested.
