Former USA Gymnastics doctor faces more child sex allegations

Raleigh's NBC station affiliate reports that a former Olympic gold medalist has said she was sexually abused for years by the former USA Gymnastics team doctor. McKayla Maroney alleges that Dr. Larry Nassar began molesting her when she was 13 years old.

Nassar is facing a wide variety of criminal charges, including receiving and possessing child pornography and destroying and concealing evidence. He pleaded guilty earlier this year to three child porn charges and is awaiting a November sentencing. His plea agreement in that case included a promise from federal prosecutors to not pursue allegations involving international and interstate travels in which sexual exploitation and attempted sexual exploitation of children might have occurred.

Maroney, 21, competed in the 2012 Summer Olympics in London. She won a gold medal and a silver medal in the individual vault competition.

Maroney said that the revelations in the recent Harvey Weinstein sexual harassment and sex abuse allegation scandal inspired her to go public with her accusations.

She said Nassar molested her in London before the gymnastics team won the gold "and It happened before I won my Silver."

The doctor's attorney was not available for comment on the new charges, but NBC noted that he has in the past said that the physician used medically sound procedures.

NBC says more than 100 women have filed complaints against the doctor and that he faces dozens of lawsuits as well.

Federal charges often carry the harshest potential penalties. If you have been charged with sex crimes by the federal government, an attorney experienced in the federal court system can help protect your rights and freedom.
