A former gymnast has testified in court that a sports doctor repeatedly molested her when she was a teenager.
Dr. Larry Nasser worked for USA Gymnastics which trains young gymnasts for the Olympics. There are four criminal cases pending against the doctor, all involving sex-related charges.
Rachel Denhollander has come forward as a witness against the doctor.
I was confident that an anonymous voice would not be enough to stop Nassar and any institution protecting him. She said it felt ‘very humiliating,’ but she trusted Nassar. She said the assaults continued during four subsequent visits, with the doctor also unfastening her bra and massaging her breasts.

Dozens of young girls have come forward to accuse Nasser of molesting them as far back as the 1990’s.
Nassar was also the doctor for the Michigan State University gymnastics team where most of the abused took place. MSU has fired Nassar.
