Nassar Faces Federal Child Porn Sentencing

When news broke that the USA Gymnastics team doctor had been abusing his patients, it cast a dark cloud over a sport that thousands of Americans enjoy watching.

Maroney has said that she was sexually abused by Nassar, who is facing several sexual assault charges and pled guilty this summer on charges of obtaining and possessing child pornography and destroying computer files to hamper a federal investigation. His victims say they complained against Nassar over the years but were brushed aside.

He also faces sentencing from state judges in Ingham and Eaton counties for 10 charges of first-degree criminal sexual conduct involving nine young women.

"It's imperative Mr. Nassar be deterred as long as possible", Neff said, ESPN reported.

McKayla Maroney, Aly Raisman and Gabby Douglas - three members of the U.S. gymnastics team that won gold at the 2012 London Olympics - are among those who've come forward with allegations of sexual abuse by Nassar. Federal prosecutors said he will likely spend the rest of his life in prison since federal time will run consecutively to state sentences.

Maroney will be in attendance at Larry Nassar's sentencing on Thursday in MI.

He also said: "I really tried to be a good person".

After the sentencing, five of Nassar's victims-including Rachael Denhollander, the first woman to come forward publicly against the former doctor-and their attorneys held a press conference.

"He abused my trust, abused my body and left scars on my psyche that may never heal", Maroney wrote in a victim-impact letter to the federal court where Nassar is to be sentenced on Thursday.

John Manly, a California-based attorney representing the victims in the civil lawsuit, said rather than apologizing or trying to help the victims, MSU and USA Gymnastics have instead offered a "hardball legal strategy under the guise of chic PR words".

While executing a search warrant at his home in Holt, south of Lansing, MSU police discovered external hard drives with more than 37,000 images and videos of child pornography that had been thrown away in Nassar's garage can in front of his house on trash collection day. The hard drives were found by investigators because the trash truck on his street was late. MI authorities arrested him last November, and in December, federal authorities added child pornography charges. Toward the end of one clip, the agent testified, Nassar is seen allegedly grabbing a hand of one girl and shoving it into the crotch of another. In her letter, she mentioned the first time Nassar abused her. Nassar has already admitted to downloading child pornography, and will be sentenced in federal court on Thursday.
