Bela, Martha Karolyi Deny Knowledge of Larry Nassar Abuse at Training Ranch

Dozens of those impact statements accused USA Gymnastics, the Olympic Committee and Michigan State University, where Nassar worked, of enabling his abuse and dismissing young women's complaints against him.

In a timeline submitted to a congressional committee investigating the scandal, the organization said it was told in mid-June 2015 of an athlete "uncomfortable" with Nassar's treatment but that it was not until late July that it chose to notify law enforcement "with concerns of potential sexual misconduct".

"As a former athlete who competed in a sport for the United States myself, I know the complete trust these young women put in their coaches, their trainers, and organizations like FIG and USAG".

Nassar, 54, is serving a 60-year sentence on federal child pornography charges and faces 40 more years behind bars in MI for 10 sexual assault convictions once his federal sentence is served. She produced a February, 2017 piece on USA Gymnastics for the CBS newsmagazine, which is a finalist for a Peabody Award.

Attorneys Mo Aziz of Abraham, Watkins, Nichols, Sorrels, Agosto & Aziz, Texas attorney Michelle Simpson Tuegel, and MI attorney James White, all filed lawsuits on Wednesday, April 18, 2018 alleging that women ranging from age 14 to age 41 were sexually molested by Larry Nassar.

The Olympic Committee, which claims to not have known about the abuse before June 2015, has apologized to the victims and announced reforms to ensure the protection of athletes.

Nassar pleaded guilty to molesting the female athletes under the cover of medical treatment and was sentenced to 60 years in prison for child pornography charges back in 2017.

The Texas Rangers were asked in January to investigate the circumstances around what happened at the ranch over the years.

An attorney for many Nassar survivors including Lorincz, John Manly, was not buying Viventi's apology. MSU still defends the conclusions of their 2014 investigation, arguing that the facts of Thomashow's case were "materially different" from a later investigation, which "reached the opposite conclusion", the report states. In the medical records that were kept, they didn't include any mention of or reference to the more sensitive parts of his treatments, like intravaginal penetration.

This sentiment has been echoed by other members of the Fierce Five gymnastics team who have spoken up about the abuse. He was arrested three months after Rachael Denhollander became the first of his victims to publicly accuse him of sexual assault when she took her story to the Indianapolis Star in September of 2016. Initially, Nassar would explain the procedure and demonstrate on a pelvic model.

MSU fired Nassar in September of 2016.
