Dr. Larry Nassar 54 appears in court for a plea hearing in Lansing Mich. Nasser a sports doctor accused of molesting girls while working for USA Gymnastics and Michigan State University pleaded guilty to multiple cha

Raisman and Maroney have both criticized USA Gymnastics for trying to keep them quiet after they told a private investigator about Nassar's abuse, NBC News reported.

Read the full statement below. This is the criminal sentencing for charges Nassar pled guilty to in November of past year.

Nassar, who also worked as gymnastics physician at Michigan State University, pleaded guilty in November to seven counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct, CNN reported previous year.

Several high-profile gymnasts have come out against Nassar, including six-time Olympic medalist Aly Raisman, 2012 all-around champion Gabby Douglas and two-time Olympic medalist McKayla Maroney.

Biles's statement came one day before Nassar's week-long sentencing hearing, in which he will hear firsthand accounts of his sexual abuse from almost 100 victims, as reported by NBC News. Was it my fault?', " Biles continued but added that "I now know the answer to those questions: No.

"This is a process, and one that I need more time to work through", Biles wrote.

Biles said she was compelled to come forward after "hearing the courageous stories of my friends and other survivors".

In her post, Biles expressed her commitment to self-healing-even though her Olympic training will force her to return to the training facility where she was abused-and asked fans to respect her privacy. She is now training for the US Classic gymnastics meet in July, and says she hopes to compete in the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games.

"Most of you know me as a happy, giggly and energetic girl".

In response to Nichols' suit, USA Gymnastics said in a statement that "U.S.A. Gymnastics kept the matter confidential because of the F.B.I.'s directive not to interfere with the investigation". He also worked for Indianapolis-based USA Gymnastics, which trains Olympians. Dozens of athletes who were members of USA Gymnastics have come forward to tell their stories and detail how they were abused by the team doctor, who presented the abuse to his victims as "treatment".

In Nov., Nassar pleaded guilty to seven counts of criminal sexual conduct.
