MSU sought to end federal oversight, delayed sending Nassar files

Former USA Gymnastics doctor gets up to 175 years as abuse victims applaud

Sentencing Larry Nassar Is Only a Start

Michigan State University's athletic director retired Friday, two days after the university president resigned over the school's handling of sexual abuse allegations against its disgraced former sports doctor, Larry Nassar.

The Olympic committee has also come under fire for failing to hold the gymnastics federation accountable for its failures.

MI state legislators were reportedly considering ways to impeach all the trustees if they don't resign.

"My heart breaks for the survivors of Larry Nassar's disgusting crimes", Education Secretary Betsy DeVos said.

After the sentence decision, Ms Lou Anna Simon, the president of Michigan State University, where Nassar also worked, said she was resigning after facing a barrage of criticism for not doing enough to halt the abuse. That being said, today I'm announcing my retirement.

Almost 160 women have come forward accusing Nassar of sexual assault.

At one point, Aquilina read Nassar's six-page letter about how hard it was for him to listen to his victims' testimonies, and she sassily tossed it aside with a meme-worthy, mic-drop-like flick of the wrist. This is gymnast Kaylee Lorincz testifying on the final day of Dr. Nassar's sentencing hearing about the complicity of Michigan State University and USA Gymnastics.

"We're not done yet".

On Thursday, the US Olympic Committee (USOC) handed a list of requirements to US Gymnastics in the wake of the abuse scandal, which included making wholesale changes.

Hollis says he's already been interviewed by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Michigan State University Police.

Raisman also calls out the USAG's complicity in Nassar's abuse. The board's top three members stepped down this week. "If we don't investigate, it's possible an individual who enabled Nassar could be appointed to the board OR the board could have the hard task of overseeing staff that enabled Nassar".

The Olympic Committee says if board members don't resign by Wednesday, USAG will lose its status as a national governing body, reports CBS News' Jon LaPook.

"According to my knowledge, Larry Nassar did not have a medical license in Texas where we trained for the Olympics".

"You do not deserve to walk outside of a prison ever again".

"We understand that the requirements imposed by the letter will help us enhance our ability to build a culture of empowerment throughout the organisation, with an increased focus on athlete safety and well-being".
