Plea deal reached in Nassar case

The state Attorney General's office issued a statement during the hearing that stated 125 victims contacted about the plea agreement were satisfied with it. In the wake of the court case, Olympic medal victor McKayla Maroney spoke out against her sport's governing body, and the team for the way they handled the years of abuse that many athletes faced at the hands of Nassar.

Michigan State University says allegations that it covered up a former gymnastics doctor's criminal sexual misconduct are "simply false" and it is "appalled" by Larry Nassar's crimes.

The Associated Press has left messages seeking comment from MSU, USA Gymnastics and the U.S. Olympic Committee.

In a statement to the court on Wednesday, Nassar said he wanted to "move the community forward and stop the hurting".

Nassar faces 25 to 40 years in prison on each count.

Nassar's plea deal follows claims by two of the United States' s most decorated gymnasts Aly Raisman and Gabby Douglas that they had been sexually abused by the former USA Gymnastics team doctor. "I agree that now is a time of healing, but it may take them a lifetime of healing while you spend your life behind bars thinking of what you did by taking away their childhood".

"I'm so sorry that this was like a match that turned into a forest fire, out of control", he said. "I didn't publicly share my experiences as well as many other things because for years we were conditioned to stay silent and honestly some things were extremely painful."Douglas's representative later confirmed to USA Today that the gymnast had been one of Nassar's victims". I just want healing.

Judge Rosemarie Aquilina told Nassar he used his position of trust "in the most vile way" to abuse children. He is also awaiting sentencing after pleading guilty to federal child pornography charges in July, in which he targeted victims as young as six years old.
