Gabby Douglas Releases New Statement on Abuse Allegations Against Larry Nassar

"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".

"It felt very uncomfortable, very degrading. Why? And I think that's important", he said. "He was a doctor and he told me that his treatment would help heal all of my injuries". Nassar is expected to also plead guilty on November 29 in neighboring Eaton County - the location of an elite gymnastics club - resolving state prosecutors' charges against him.

"I pray the rosary every day for forgiveness", he said at one point.

Nasser has pleaded guilty to multiple charges of sexual assault; he also faces 33 charges of criminal sexual conduct in MI, where he practiced, and has pleaded guilty to federal child pornography.

In a brief statement on Wednesday, Dr. Nassar said he made the plea "to move the community forward and stop the hurting".

Their feud initially began after Raisman took to social media to sound off against those who would victim-shame the women coming forward to speak out against their abusers, saying, "Just because a woman does a sexy photoshoot or wears a sexy outfit does not give a man the right to shame her or not believe her when she comes forward about sexual abuse".

He could face no less than 5 years and not more than 20 years in prison.

"We've never been given the documents either in litigation or anywhere else to show who knew what when", said Manly, who added that Michigan State President Lou Anna Simon should resign if she does not release an internal report about the scandal.

Nassar entered his plea during a court hearing in MI on Wednesday.

Nassar's case was part of a scandal which saw USA Gymnastics president Steve Penny resign previous year.

The craft was navigating normally, underwater, at a speed of five knots toward Mar del Plata when it was last heard from, he said. More than a dozen global vessels and aircraft have joined in a maritime search that has become a race against the clock.

Meanwhile, alleged victim Larissa Boyce said it was "really hard" to look at Nassar in the courtroom.

Those comments were in response to Aly Raisman, the USA team captain at the London and Rio Games, who said she had been abused by Nassar.

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.

In addition to the criminal charges against him, Nassar faces civil suits from 145 plaintiffs, according to one of the law firms handling civil cases. The school's gymnastics coach, Kathie Klages, was suspended and stepped down a year ago.

The plea deal in Ingham County calls for a minimum prison sentence of 25 years, but the judge could set the minimum sentence as high as 40 years.

Nassar also agreed to a lifetime of electronic monitoring.

"We felt like we were alone for so long", Harrison said on Friday.

"Court referring to Larry as DOCTOR Nassar".
