US Olympic gold medallist Gabby Douglas says doctor sexually abused her

Gabby Douglas Releases New Statement on Abuse Allegations Against Larry Nassar

Nassar's sentencing hearing has been set for January 12 when all of the 125 victims or their parents will be allowed to give victim impact statements. Douglas was criticised last week after an apparent barb directed at Raisman, who recently revealed she was sexually assaulted by U.S. team doctor Larry Nassar, who is facing multiple charges of abuse. Steve Penny resigned as CEO of the organization after 70 athletes sued both USA Gymnastics and Nassar for various assaults over his years as the volunteer doctor in charge of health and wellness for the organization.

While the case against Nassar uncovered a decades-long sex abuse scandal within USA Gymnastics, the former president of the organization was forced to step down this year.

Douglas later apologised, and in a further statement on Tuesday captioned "Please hear my heart", said her remarks were not intended as a criticism of Raisman."First, I want to reiterate my apology for responding the way that I did to a comment that one of my teammates posted", Douglas wrote.

He faces between 25 to 40 years in prison.

New Planetary Discovery Is An Important Step For Finding Another Earth
Ross 128 b also orbits a red dwarf, but its star is much less active, so the surface of the planet is likely more temperate. But others, such as the presence of water, are going to require more advanced instruments that we have yet to develop.

Olympic gymnasts Aly Raisman, McKayla Maroney and Gabby Douglas are among the women who have publicly said they were among Nassar's victims.

"I'm so horribly sorry that this was like a match that turned into a forest fire out of control", Nassar said. "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 have no animosity toward any one. I just want healing.

Nassar had been charged with 22 counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct and 11 counts of third-degree criminal sexual conduct at the state level. 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.
