Nassar, the former renowned doctor for USA Gymnastics, pleaded guilty to seven counts of criminal sexual conduct in Ingham County in MI.

Michigan's attorney general said his office will conduct a review of Michigan State University's handling of complaints against Nassar. He was sacked in September 2016 after complaints poured in.

USA Gymnastics has come under fire throughout the hearing, with Miss Wieber telling the court how Nassar had unrestricted access to young hopefuls bidding for their breakthrough. It is time to hold the leadership of Michigan State University, USA Gymnastics and the United States Olympic Committee accountable for allowing, and in some cases enabling, his crimes.

Here, Raisman directly addressed a letter Nassar wrote - parts of which were read to the court Thursday - in which he asked to be excused from four days of victim impact statements as he could not "mentally" handle it.

"It wasn't until I started watching the impact statements from the other courageous survivors that I realized I too, needed to be here", Raisman said.

"After watching many of these heartbreaking statements and reading accounts about them, we have concluded that only a review by your office can resolve the questions in a way that the victims, their families, and the public will deem satisfactory and that will help all those affected by Nassar's terrible crimes to heal", the university's board said in a letter to Schuette requesting his help. Full stop. She began her journey to Olympic gold in Rio de Janeiro with three world championships already under her belt.

"You do realize now the women you so heartlessly abused over such a long period of time are now a force, and you are nothing." said Raisman, who has also accused Nassar of abuse along with fellow gymnasts, at the Ingham County courthouse in MI.

That should be her legacy.

"It will no longer serve as the USA Gymnastics National Team Training Center", USA Gymnastics president and CEO Kerry Perry said in a statement.

"What you did to me was twisted", she said. I was 8 years old, and I told myself that one day I would wear that red, white, and blue leotard, and compete for my country. It inspires people to fight for their dreams, because anything is possible with hard-work and dedication. In fact, by the time Raisman finished her 14-minute statement, the court had erupted in cheers.

"I haven't sensed the outrage", Larissa Boyce told HuffPost.

She and dozens of other women were in a MI courthouse this week, to face Nassar and detail his alleged crimes.

Toni Troop of the anti-abuse group Jane Doe Inc. said the gymnasts shouldn't be punished.

"Now is not the time for false reassurances", she said.

Numerous victims over the past four days have criticised USA Gymnastics, MSU and the US Olympic Committee for not stopping Nassar sooner. He'd given me a sleeping pill for the flight, and the next thing I know, I was all alone with him in his hotel room getting a 'treatment.' I thought I was going to die that night. I think it's sexism, to be honest. In doing so, Wieber became the fourth member of the "Fierce Five" to come forward with abuse accusations against the ex-Team USA coach. Al Franken have dominated the conversation.

A question that has been asked over and over is: How could have Larry Nassar been allowed to assault so many women and girls for more than two decades? At least it shouldn't.
