Aly Raisman said her former coach on the US Olympics gymnastics team likely knew but said nothing of molestation allegations against former team doctor Larry Nassar.

"Sexual assault should never be tolerated, but when it does occur, it is imperative that swift and immediate action be taken to stop the abuse, prevent it from recurring, and address its effects", the letter says.

The "eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth" atmosphere around Nassar was also on display at his third trial in MI, where he was sentenced to an additional 40 to 125 years for sexual abuse at the Twistars Gymnastics Club.

Margraves says donors can either ask for a refund by March 9, or their donation will go to charities that support sex abuse survivors, like Small Talk, RAVE and the Firecracker Foundation. "And John Geddert was in the auto with us and he just didn't say anything", she said of the coach.

"Mr. Geddert only wishes to convey his heart-felt sympathy to all victims of Larry Nassar's abuse", Geddert's attorney Chris Bergstrom, said in a statement. Last Friday, Randywas in court his daughter who was giving her victim impact statement.

In a new interview with Jake Tapper on CNN, the 23-year-old Olympian says team coach John Geddert was in the auto back in 2011 when one teammate was detailing being molested by the disgraced doctor. After that he would theoretically be transferred to the Michigan Department of Corrections to serve sentences on the state crimes, but he would need to make it to over 100 years old for that to happen.

"As a result of the outrage people around the country expressed, the president of Michigan State University and the entire board of USA Gymnastics were forced to resign". Why has the United States Olympic Committee been silent?

Geddert coached the U.S. women's team to the gold medal at the 2012 Olympics in London. "Yet, an Olympic gymnastics team doctor sexually abused young gymnasts unfettered for years", the Committee's letter to the USOC reads.

"Michigan State University, the school I loved and trusted, had the audacity to tell me that I did not understand the difference between sexual assault and a medical procedure", Thomashow stated.

And she drew and drew - sketching the survivors who spoke at the Ingham County, Michigan, hearing where Nassar was sentenced to 40 to 175 years in prison.
