Former USA Gymnastics doctor accused of abuse.
Full story from Indy Star. Two former gymnasts, including an Olympic medalist (identified as Jane Doe), have accused prominent, longtime team physician, Dr. Larry Nassar, working for USA Gymnastics of sexual abuse.
A 2000 U.S. female Olympian has filed a lawsuit for sexual assault against alleged perpetrator, an adult male individual who was a certified athletic trainer and a osteopathic physician for the US Women’s Team through the 2012 Olympics (the Indy Star has identified the perpetrator as Larry Nassar).
The Olympian accuses him of fondling and groping her breasts, and “introduced his bare hand to Plaintiff’s vagina and anus, on multiple locations, in Plaintiff’s assigned sleeping quarters, as she lay on the edge of her bed, alone and without any supervision or a chaperone…” and that she needed “intravaginal adjustment.” Doe asserts this was done without gloves.
