Larry Nassar

Former USA Gymnastics and Michigan State University doctor Larry Nassar was too late trying to discard the thousands of incriminating images and videos that mark him as the “worst” kind of danger to society, according to a magistrate judge overseeing his hearings Wednesday.

Nassar, 53, will remain jailed on child pornography charges after an FBI agent said at least 37,000 images and videos were discovered in a garbage can outside his home during a search of his property in Holt, Michigan, the Lansing State Journal reported.

Special agent Rod Charles testified Wednesday that trash collection was delayed the day of the search warrant, allowing an officer to check the garbage bin by the curb of Nassar’s property and find a collection of external hard drives bearing his name and address.

Included in the stash are videos of the doctor sexually assaulting girls under the age of 12 in a pool and others of young girls being raped. Assistant US Attorney Sean Lewis, in his request for Nassar to be detained, stressed his decades’ worth of sexual assault allegations and the age of his victims, including one who was 6-years-old.

Nassar’s lawyer had requested electronic monitoring at home.

Nassar was arrested last month on charges of sexually assaulting a girl at his home between 1998 and 2005. After pleading not guilty and being released on a $1 million bond, he was indicted on federal charges last week and faces up to life in prison.

Additionally, Nassar is the subject of at least four lawsuits alleging he assaulted female student-athletes while they were undergoing treatments. The latest was filed Wednesday in Los Angeles by former Michigan State softball player Tiffany Thomas Lopez.

In a lawsuit obtained by ESPN, Lopez says she went to Nassar, a nationally recognized osteopathic physician at the time, for treatment of chronic lower back pain starting in 1998. The lawsuit alleges Nassar sexually abused her during her visits more than 10 times over the course of three years, using an exam he called “inter-vaginal adjustments.”

Lopez claims she told three separate Michigan State athletic trainers about Nassar’s actions, which included “[touching] her vagina” and, when he “became more bold,” having her “remove her pants, and then inserting his bare, ungloved and unlubricated hand into her vagina.”

When Lopez refused to continue her visits with Nassar in 2001, according to the lawsuit, the university coerced her into declaring herself medically inactive and ending her playing career. Soon after, the standout softball player left Michigan State and went back home to California.

“They told me he was a world-renowned physician. What they did not tell me is that he was a serial molester and pedophile,” Lopez said at a news conference Wednesday. “I feel guilty. Not because I did anything wrong, but because I was not able to come forward sooner to help other girls.”

Aly Raisman reveals sexual abuse by Team USA doctor

Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman says she was sexually abused by former USA Gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar in a forthcoming interview with “60 Minutes.”

In a preview released Friday, Raisman, 23, tells the show’s Dr. Jon LaPook she was first treated by Nassar, who spent nearly three decades as an osteopath with the USA Gymnastics organization, when she was 15 years old. The gold medalist says many have asked why she and other accusers didn’t speak up right away.

“Why are we looking at why didn’t the girls speak up?” Raisman said in the sit-down, airing Sunday. “Why not look at what about the culture? What did USA Gymnastics do, and Larry Nassar do, to manipulate these girls so much that they are so afraid to speak up?”

Raisman’s Fab Five teammate from the 2012 London games, McKayla Maroney, revealed her own horror story of alleged sexual abuse by Nassar, claiming he had given her a sleeping pill and she had woken up alone with him in his hotel room during the 2011 world championships in Tokyo. Raisman spoke out in support of Maroney, 21, who posted her account online in October as part of the #MeToo campaign, in the wake of sexual allegations mounting against disgraced producer (((Harvey Weinstein))).

“@McKaylaMaroney love you girls!!!!!!!” Raisman tweeted, in response to former teammate Jordyn Wieber’s message. “So sad and heartbreaking that this happened to you Mack. I’m here for you and I support you.”

Raisman hopes to transform the culture, particularly for young women.

“I am angry. I’m really upset because it’s been — I care a lot, you know, when I see these young girls come up to me, and they ask for pictures or autographs, whatever it is, I just — I can’t — every time I look at them, every time I see them smiling, I just think — I want to create change so that they never, ever have to go through this,” Raisman said.

This isn’t the first time Raisman has spoken out against the disgraced doctor. In August, the medalist blasted Nassar as a “monster” after he pleaded guilty to possession of child pornography.

Nassar awaits a separate trial on criminal sexual conduct charges and has pleaded not guilty. More than 125 women have sued him for alleged sexual assault. He is currently incarcerated in Michigan.

Ahead of Raisman’s interview, USA Gymnastics issued a statement to “60 Minutes” saying they have embraced a new “safe sport policy,” which would require “mandatory reporting” of any suspected sexual abuse.

“USA Gymnastics is very sorry that any athlete has been harmed,” the organization noted, adding they have set standards to “prevent inappropriate interaction” between adults and athletes. They want to work with Raisman and all interested parties to “keep athletes safe.”

Disgusting gymnastics doctor pleads guilty to sexual assaults

LANSING, Mich. — A sports doctor accused of molesting girls while working for USA Gymnastics and Michigan State University pleaded guilty Wednesday to multiple charges of sexual assault and will face at least 25 years in prison.

Dr. Larry Nassar, 54, was charged with molesting seven girls, mostly under the guise of treatment at his Lansing-area home and a campus clinic. All but one of his accusers were gymnasts. He faces similar charges in a neighboring county and lawsuits filed by more than 125 women and girls.

Olympic gymnasts Aly Raisman, McKayla Maroney and Gabby Douglas are among the women who have publicly said they were among Nassar’s victims.

Some of his accusers attended the hearing Wednesday in a packed Ingham County courtroom. Some were crying.

Nassar admitted digitally penetrating the victims and agreed that his conduct had no legitimate medical purpose and that he did not have the girls’ consent.

The plea deal in Ingham County calls for a minimum prison sentence of 25 years, but a judge could set the minimum sentence as high as 40 years. In Michigan, inmates are eligible for parole after serving a minimum sentence.

Sentencing was set for Jan. 12.

The girls have testified that Nassar molested them with his hands, sometimes when a parent was present in the room, while they sought help for gymnastics injuries.

“He convinced these girls that this was some type of legitimate treatment,” Assistant Attorney General Angela Poviliatis told a judge last summer. “Why would they question him? Why would they question this gymnastics god?”

Separately, Nassar is charged with similar crimes in Eaton County, the location of an elite gymnastics club. He also is awaiting sentencing in federal court on child pornography charges.

The Michigan criminal cases against Nassar followed reports last year in the Indianapolis Star about how USA Gymnastics, which trains Olympians, mishandled complaints about sexual misconduct involving the doctor and coaches. Women and girls said the stories inspired them to step forward with detailed allegations of abuse, sometimes when their parents were in the exam room at Michigan State.
