As of Tuesday, 88 women have agreed to make victim-impact statements at Nassar's sentencing.

USA Gymnastics says it won't fine McKayla Maroney if she decides to speak out about former sports doctor Larry Nassar during his sentencing hearing.

More than 140 women have come forward accusing Nassar of sexual abuse, including numerous country's top gymnasts who said they were abused under the guise of medical treatment while Nassar acted as Team USA's doctor.

"You made me believe you were my friend", Jenette Antolin said.

"A real doctor, as I said before, helps heal", Gina Nichols said. "I hope that your self-pity is as dark and more terrifying than my feeling of hopelessness".

"Perhaps you have figured it out by now", she began, "but little girls don't stay little forever". Prosecutors are seeking an additional sentence of 40-125 years in prison.

ESPN published a lengthy feature Tuesday outlining the web of people, from USA Gymnastics to medical professionals to administrators at Michigan State University, who enabled Larry Nassar's predatory behavior. But in court, Kyle said she's finally getting her retribution. Among the victims are Olympic gymnasts Gabby Douglas, Makayla Maroney and Aly Raisman.

The now 20-year-old gymnast, who won the individual all-around in the 2016 Olympics, explained Nassar violated her in the guise of "special treatment".

The outburst from Thomas Brennan came as one of his former athletes, Gwen Anderson, was tearfully testifying at Nassar's sentencing hearing about being molested by him.

In October, Maroney tweeted that she was sexually abused by Larry Nassar, the national team doctor. "I think that when somebody in high power is telling you to be quiet, right when they realised you are abused, I think that that is a threat".

"I knew that procedure, he had done that procedure to me".

"They grow into strong women that ... destroy your world". Asked about Nassar, she said she fired him the day she knew of the allegations. One parent told Nassar that her daughter took her life following the abuse. (The model Chrissy Teigen offered to pay Maroney's fine if she spoke out at Nassar's hearing, sharing the outrage that many people expressed when the news broke that Maroney had been silenced.) Maroney's attorney, John Manly, said that the organization was forced to wave the fine because of the public outcry: "Let's be clear". According to her post, she said that, for so long, she had tried to shut off the screams that are inside her head, but now she is no longer afraid to tell her story.
