USA Gymnastics board members resign as Larry Nassar hearing continues

Lauded'Judge Aquilina is incredible for letting this happen and supporting all these women' wrote one

The resignations announced Monday include chairman Paul Parilla, vice chairman Jay Binder and treasurer Bitsy Kelley.

USA Gymnastics tweeted Monday afternoon: "USA Gym Board of Directors executive leadership - Chairman Paul Parilla, Vice Chairman Jay Binder & Treasurer Bitsy Kelley - tendered their resignations, effective January 21, 2018".

Nassar, who was employed by Michigan State University, is in the midst of a sentencing hearing related to roughly 140 charges of sexual harassment and assault. Under a plea deal, he faces a minimum of 25 to 40 years behind bars, although the actual sentence could be much higher. "We had so many other things to go over, and we unanimously decided in that meeting right away that we were going to support her staying the president".

The young victim says that her mother is still being billed for appointments at MSU where she was sexually assaulted by disgraced Dr. Larry Nassar.

Nassar was sentenced to 60 years in jail in December for three counts relating to child sex abuse images on his computer.

The criticism gained momentum in recent months after Maroney revealed she had been molested, followed by disclosures from her "2012 "Fierce Five" teammates Raisman, Wieber and Gabby Douglas, and 2016 gold-medalist Simone Biles".

Watch Tom Brady dodge questions about his mysterious injury
Brady wore the gloves at the start of practice, and said Friday it has been a long time since he wore them in a game. New England might very well be playing it cautious here, but it's concerning that Brady couldn't get any work in.

Miller continued her statement, by asking Nassar to write down every single time that MSU, USA Gymnastics, and Twistars, the MI gymnastics club where some of Nassar's abuse occurred, "could have" and also "should have" stopped him from abusing his patients.

Miller said she sought treatment from Nassar and considered him to be a friend and role model.

Nassar's victims have not only taken aim at him and Michigan State, but also USA Gymnastics and the U.S. Olympic Committee - organizations they believe mishandled complaints about him. He started in his position as national medical coordinator for USA Gymnastics in 1996.

A number of Olympians have been among those testifying in the Nassar hearing.
