Former USA Olympic gymnastics doctor pleads guilty to sexual abuse

Dr. Larry Nassar

The former USA Gymnastics team doctor at the center of a sexual assault scandal, pleaded guilty Wednesday to multiple counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct in a MI court.

During Nassar's sentencing in January, the 125 women who reported their assaults to Michigan State Police will be allowed to read their victim statements.

Three-times Olympic gold medalist Douglas said on Tuesday she was sexually abused by Nassar while Raisman, also a three-times gold medalist, made similar allegations in an interview with CBS News program "60 Minutes" on Sunday.

Nassar acknowledged that he assaulted the young women. Other charges were dismissed or reduced as part of a plea agreement Larry Nasser made with MI prosecutors.

In a statement to the court on Wednesday, Nassar said he wanted to "move the community forward and stop the hurting".

Nassar faces a minimum of 25 years in prison on each count, but the judge can lengthen that during sentencing.

"For all those involved, I'm so horribly sorry that this was like a match that turned into a forest fire out of control", he said. "I have no animosity toward anyone". I just want healing.

Olympic champion Gabby Douglas revealed on Tuesday she was also abused by a former U.S. team doctor as she issued a new statement responding to allegations she "victim-shamed" team-mate Aly Raisman.

Do you think Larry Nassar's plea was enough? Nassar also faces over 125 civil suits, and federal charges as well.

Judge Rosemarie Aquilina admonished the former doctor, telling him, "You used that position of trust that you had in the most vile way - to abuse children".

Nassar had originally been charged with 22 counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct and 11 counts of third-degree criminal sexual conduct at the state level but the Michigan Attorney General's office agreed not to file additional charges after Wednesday's plea.
