15-Year-Old Survivor Emma Ann Miller Says MSU Is Still Billing Her For Larry Nassar Appointments Where She Was Sexually Assaulted

LOOK: Tom Izzo issues statement after Aly Raisman's mother asks 'are you a moron?'

She was so far the 95th survivor to speak, and the list continues.

In comments Friday night, Izzo, who has faced criticism and calls for her resignation regarding how the university has handled the investigation.

"Having Preston here has just been a joy", said Samantha Ursch, 29, who testified last week about abuse by Nassar in 2011 while she was a gymnast at Central Michigan University. She also said the last "treatment" was in August 2016, possibly making her the last child to be assaulted by the former physician before he was suspended by MSU.

Raisman also called out United States of America gymnastics and the U.S. Olympic Committee for turning a blind eye to the many allegations of abuse over the years.

"I have never wanted to hate someone in my life, but my hate towards you is uncontrollable", Miller told Nassar as she stared him down in court.

Perry said the board will work to "ensure that our culture, policies and actions reflect our commitment to those we serve".

Lemke said when she went public, she was terrified about the potential consequences and her status on the MSU Gymnastics team, wondering if her scholarship would be taken away.

Nassar has pleaded guilty to seven counts of criminal sexual conduct in Ingham County, Michigan, and has admitted to sexually assaulting and abusing young girls under the guise of providing medical treatment.

Her liver and lungs had been ruptured and an object had been jammed into her privates, doctors said. Police have arrested two men, who are residents of the same village, in connection with the case.

Larry Nassar, the longtime US team physician, has been sentenced to 60 years in prison for child pornography and faces a minimum sentence of 25 to 40 years in prison on the molestation charges.

One of the most searing takedowns came from Raisman, who stared down Nassar and lambasted his decades of abuse.

Monday's first speaker, Bailey Lorencen, focused her ire on John Geddert, the head coach of 2012 gold-medal Olympic team and a prominent coach in the USA Gymnastics system.

USA Gymnastics is cleaning house.

In addition, three USAG board members have resigned. He faces a minimum prison sentence of 25 to 40 years in the molestation case.

"After watching many of these heartbreaking statements and reading accounts about them, we have concluded that only a review by your office can resolve the questions in a way that the victims, their families, and the public will deem satisfactory and that will help all those affected by Nassar's terrible crimes to heal", the university's board said in a letter to Schuette requesting his help.

Preston, a therapy dog, provides comfort as victims confront admitted sexual abuser Larry Nassar during his sentencing hearing at Ingham County Circuit Court in Lansing, Mich. on January 19, 2018.

"He knew what was coming", Miller told Aquilina. Larry, we are here. It's not clear yet if he will choose to do so.
