NCAA opens investigation into how MSU handled Nassar case

NCAA opens investigation into how MSU handled Nassar case

"Although you have hurt me I want to forgive you", Emily Morales, 18, a gymnast who was treated by Nassar, said to him with tears streaming out of her eyes during his marathon sentencing in a MI court.

More than 120 girls and women, including former Olympic gold medalists, have already confronted Larry Nassar or had statements read on their behalf over five emotional days of sentencing.

Hermann Walz, an adjunct professor at John Jay College of Criminal Justice in New York City, told ABC News, "I don't see any downside for people doing it". On Monday, the USA Gymnastics announced resignations from its board of directors' executive leadership.

FOX59 reached out to USA Gymnastics for a statement, but we have not heard back at this time.

More than 140 women are part of a civil lawsuit against MSU, claiming the school failed to protect the victims. Since members of the 2012 team came forward with their allegations, USA Gymnastics has been looked at critically for its alleged complicity during the years the abuse was taking place. Did they issue a statement then?

"To believe in the future of gymnastics is to believe in change", she said.

"Shutting the door on him is a prison door", Aquilina said on Friday after a powerful victim impact speech.

Meanwhile, a senior member of Michigan State's governing board said President Lou Anna Simon will not be forced out over the Nassar scandal - "period".

In Geddert's email to families, he appeared to criticize USA Gymnastics and its decision to suspend him.

But the exact length of the sentence he receives in this case may be moot. Nassar was the team's physician before being accused of sexual assault by multiple patients.

"The NCAA has requested information from Michigan State about any potential rules violations", Donald M. Remy, the NCAA's chief legal officer, told the Times on Tuesday.

But hours later, the NCAA released a statement saying it sent a letter of inquiry to Michigan State, effectively opening an investigation into the school's handling of the Nassar case. He'll be sentenced on additional charges in Eaton County, related to his work at Twistars Dimondale location, later this month.

"I've been on the board for 30 years and she by far is the best president we've ever had", said the vice president of the university's Board of Trustees. Some appeared in person and others recorded their statements.

USAG said in response to the lawsuit that they had been instructed by the Federal Bureau of Investigation in 2015 not to discuss it, but they did promptly relieve Nassar of his position.
