USA Olympic doctor Nassar jailed for 60 years over child porn

He could face life in prison when he is sentenced on those charges next month.

Nassar said it was a disease he had been struggling with for years and he hoped he could be forgiven.

Nassar's attorneys had asked the federal judge for leniency in court filings, arguing Nassar had helped fellow inmates and taken Bible classes since his arrest almost a year ago, the State Journal said. "I lost everything because of this".

He also said: "I really tried to be a good person. I really tried to help people". Olympic medalists McKayla Maroney, Aly Raisman and now Gabby Douglas are among the scores of girls and women who have come forward to say that they, too, were abused.

Nassar, accused in civil and criminal complaints of sexually assaulting more than 140 women, also has pleaded guilty to several sex crimes in two counties in MI, and will be sentenced for those charges in separate hearings in state courts next month.

Meanwhile, it's been reported that negotiations to settle federal lawsuits filed by more than 140 abuse survivors against MSU, USA Gymnastics and the U.S. Olympic Committee have failed and are now expected to go to trial.

"When I first met Larry Nassar".

"Soon after Larry pleaded guilty to federal child pornography charges, I was informed that I could submit a Victim Impact Statement to the court for sentencing consideration". "Mr. Nassar was, is and, in my view, will continue to be a danger to children".

"He abused my trust, abused my body and left scars on my psyche that may never heal", McKayla told the court in her letter.

"In the course of that broader investigation, they spoke to two gymnasts who accused Nassar - a powerful, prominent figure within the gymnastics world - of sexual abuse".

His public downfall began in September 2016, when the Indianapolis Star named Nassar in a report on USA Gymastics' lackluster response to allegations of assault.

While executing a search warrant at his home in Holt, south of Lansing, MSU police discovered external hard drives with more than 37,000 images and videos of child pornography that had been thrown away in Nassar's garage can in front of his house on trash collection day. When he turned in his work laptop computer, officials said it had been wiped completely clean, including the operating system.

Some of the videos appeared to show Nassar assaulting young girls in a pool, investigators said.

The child porn was discovered past year. Toward the end of one clip, the agent testified, Nassar is seen allegedly grabbing a hand of one girl and shoving it into the crotch of another.

Concerns about Nassar's behaviours can be traced back to 1990 after four other women said they were digitally penetrated during treatment sessions in the late 90's.

The criminal cases against Nassar followed reports past year in The Indianapolis Star about how USA Gymnastics mishandled complaints about sexual misconduct involving the doctor and coaches.
