University of Oklahoma gymnast says sports doctor abused her

The Associated Press - January 10, 2018 10:03 am

NORMAN, Okla. (AP) – A University of Oklahoma gymnast and former Olympic hopeful says she is among more than 100 women and girls who say they are victims of sexual abuse by a now-imprisoned Michigan sports doctor.
OU sophomore Maggie Nichols said in a statement Tuesday that Dr. Larry Nassar molested her at the Karolyi Ranch Olympic training camp in Texas. She wrote: “He violated our innocence.”
Minnesota native Nichols’ lawyer is John Manly. Manly represents 107 females suing two institutions that employed Nassar: USA Gymnastics, the Indianapolis-based group that trains Olympians; and Michigan State University.
Nassar has admitted sexually assaulting the gymnasts, possessing child pornography and molesting girls who sought medical treatment. He is scheduled for sentencing next week on the molestation cases. He was sentenced in December to 60 years in federal prison for possessing child pornography.
