  • Larry Nassar

Gymnast Aly Raisman said former U.S. Olympic gymnastics team coach John Geddert knew of the sex abuse allegations against disgraced sports doctor Larry Nassar for years but did nothing about it.

On every social media website and every news station, there are videos of the USA Women's Gymnastics team speaking out about 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. He's also been sentenced twice to at least 40 years in MI prison for sexual assault, punishments that wouldn't start unless the 54-year-old outlives the federal sentence.

"There's now significant bipartisan support for establishing a special committee charged with the sole focus of investigating the US Olympic Committee and USA Gymnastics", said Democratic Senator Jeanne Shaheen, who announced the resolution with Republican Senator Joni Ernst as co-sponsor. "And John Geddert was in the auto with us and he just didn't say anything", she said of the coach.

"A lack of nation allowed Nassar's offenses to infect almost every level of gymnastics in our country", the letter to Engler said. Monday was the first day for interim President John Engler, who called for the school to preserve all documents related to Nassar that could used against the institution in investigations (Deadspin, "MSU Interim President John Engler To School Employees: Don't Destroy Documents Related to Investigations", 2.6.2018).




Geddert has previously issued a statement denying that he knew about Nassar's actions; he was suspended by USA Gymnastics as part of the fallout from the Nassar case.

Nassar was found guilty in November 2017 and sentenced to up to 125 years in prison on several charges of abuse and child pornography last month.

Geddert coached the United States women's team to the gold medal at the 2012 Olympics in London. Last Friday, Randywas in court his daughter who was giving her victim impact statement.

"There are many disturbing questions that remain unanswered as to how Larry Nassar was able to freely abuse young girls for decades", Shaheen told reporters.

The Committee also sent a letter to Michigan State University informing it of an investigation. Two former gymnasts allegedly informed Klages of Nassar's misconduct as far back as 1997, but their pleas for help were ignored.
