Aly Raisman: 'I was told to be quiet' about abuse

Aly Raisman: 'I was told to be quiet' about abuse

Kyle Stephens told the hearing on Tuesday (16 January) that Nassar, who is being sentenced this week on seven counts of sexual assault, began molesting her when she was just six years old.

"If it was a lower sentence and the judge made those types of comments about my client, I would definitely use those sentiments in an appeal to show the judge had a preexisting bias against the defendant", she said.

Nassar is the former USA Gymnastics team doctor who late last year was sentenced to 60 years in prison for child pornography.

Stephens was the first of the almost 100 survivors expected to testify at a four-day sentencing hearing for Nassar this week in state court. You know, their biggest priority from the beginning and still today is their reputation, the medals they win and the money they make off of us.

2 escape with $7m Ritz jewellery
Diana, Princess of Wales dined at the hotel shortly before she was killed in a vehicle crash on the night of August 31, 1997. The hotel, owned by Mohamed Al Fayed, reopened last year after four years of refurbishment work.

"I trusted what he was doing at first, but then he started touching me in places I really didn't think he should".

Olympic gold medalists Simone Biles, Gabby Douglas, McKayla Maroney and Aly Raisman have said they, too, were victims.

USA Gymnastics also states children should not travel, stay with or be alone with adults on a one-on-one basis.

"I honor them for that strength and bravery and really hope people can see this story and listen to the children in their lives so our young children today don't have to be the courageous women telling the story tomorrow", says Kendall.

Steve Bannon subpoenaed to special counsel in Russian Federation probed
Mark Warner (D-VA), the top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee, also wants to hear what Bannon has to say. But Trump accused Bannon of having "lost his mind" when news of his comments to Wolff surfaced earlier this month .

Raisman has been withering in her criticism of USA Gymnastics, which she has said is "100% responsible" for the abuse suffered by dozens of young girls over two decades. I don't know how they sleep at night. "And, to me, it seemed like they threatened me to be quiet". "But they don't mean it". "I Pray the rosary every day for forgiveness".

"That's what's going to happen to him, because as you get stronger, as you overcome - because you will - he gets weaker and he will wither away". This has been her right and USA Gymnastics encourages McKayla and anyone who has been abused to speak out.

The 22-year-old had been warned she could be fined $100,000 if she spoke about her abuse at the hands of disgraced former team doctor Larry Nassar under the terms of a non-disclosure agreement, which she had sought to have overturned. He also notes that "The only reason this statement was issued is because people were outraged by USAG's behavior toward Ms. Maroney and her family".

In a case dominated by celebrity victims and open questions about USA Gymnastics's response to the scandal, Stephens's powerful leadoff testimony this week underscored the human toll of Nassar's runaway abuse - which, for Stephens, included broken family ties and possibly her father's suicide.
