The exposure of the extent of sexual abuse by sports doctor Lawrence Nassar, who worked for the U.S.A. Gymnastics team, the United States Olympic Committee, Michigan State University, Karolyi ranch and other sports training centers, has drawn worldwide attention and revulsion.

On every social media website and every news station, there are videos of the USA Women's Gymnastics team speaking out about Larry Nassar.

"One of the most disturbing aspects of the survivors' accounts is how this reprehensible conduct went undetected or ignored for years", the committee, led by Reps.

In annoucng that she would not charge Margraves with contempt of court, Judge Julie Cunningham called the incident "truly an immediate and emotional reaction of a father", she said.

"[The donation] allows us to continue to do the great work that we do here and provide essential services to children who are survivors of very unfortunate circumstances", said Alex Brace, executive director of Small Talk Children's Assessment Center. "And John Geddert was in the vehicle with us and he just didn't say anything", Ms Raisman told CNN.

- The man who lunged at convicted sex abuser Larry Nassar after asking for a few minutes alone in a room with him says if you donated to a defense fund set up for him, he's returning the money or donating to charity.

Aly Raisman claimed John Geddert knew of Larry Nassar's abuse for years.

In one of the victim impact statements, Amanda Thomashow expressed how Michigan State University turned a blind eye to her complaints.

Geddert abruptly resigned last month after USA Gymnastics suspended him as part of an internal investigation.

One of the women who stood up to speak against Nassar was two-time Olympic gold medalist, Aly Raisman. He was first sentenced to 60 years in a federal prison on child pornography charges in July, before being slapped with 40 to 175 years in a MI state prison for sexually assaulting minors.

Nassar, 54, will spend the rest of his life in prison.

Letters were sent to leaders of all of the institutions named in the investigation, including MSU Interim President John Engler.

Senator Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) spoke out on Wednesday saying, "The U.S. Olympic committee and USA Gymnastics need to be held accountable". "Yet, Twistars' team doctor sexually abused young gymnasts unfettered for years".
