Senators To Examine USA Gymnastics And US Olympic Committee Over Nassar Abuse

BRENDA BLAGG: Justice long delayed

Column: The People versus The NCAA

The sentence is largely symbolic because Nassar, who pleaded guilty, is already assured of spending the rest of his life behind bars.

An Indianapolis Star investigation of USA Gymnastics, begun in 2016, uncovered widespread sexual abuse of athletes by coaches and others and failures to alert authorities.

One alleged victim who spoke to police in January said she didn't realize Schneider's behavior was inappropriate until recently.

The statement from the MDP calls Schuette's investigation a "tangled web of conflict and insatiable appetite for the political spotlight have been on full display throughout his attempt to use the MSU-Nassar investigation to once again further his political ambitions". Its president has said it will launch a third-party investigation.

USAG also cut ties with Karolyi Ranch, a secluded camp where it sent Olympic gymnasts and children to train.

There has yet to be any change in reporting policies from the involved institutions or specific punishment given to individuals who may have turned a blind eye to Nassar. Four members of that team, including Jordyn Wieber, have said Nassar abused them. She told Nassar she didn't believe "there is a likelihood that you could be reformed".

High-level officials at USA Gymnastics and Michigan State have been forced to resign in recent weeks.

Sen. Debbie Stabenow, D-Mich., a Michigan State alumna who supports the resolution, said when she heard about the disruption, "I thought I would have liked five minutes with this guy". USAG is no stranger to sexual assault scandals. Under USAG bylaws, a suspended member can not coach at sanctioned events, among other restrictions.

The list remains available on its website today.

Amy Preston, mother of an unidentified Nassar victim who was trained at Twistars, said in court that her daughter suffered under Geddert's emotional abuse, which she said Nassar exploited to build trust with the young gymnast.

"Most of you have noticed that I have been taking a back seat this year", Geddert wrote. "My heart goes out to the women affected and their families".

"The Olympics start in just a couple of days", Sen. But everyone "must commit to preventing any assault, abuse or bullying".

MSU's Faculty Senate is expected to hold a no-confidence vote on February 13.

Indiana University has hundreds of student-athletes, both male and female, along with doctors and trainers and coaches of both genders.
