Raisman, 23, told CNN on Thursday that Geddert - who is facing a criminal investigation in MI for physical abuse following Nassar's sentencing - could have put an end to the horrors inflicted on more than 250 Nassar accusers.

On January 24th, Judge Rosemarie Aquilina of Ingham County Circuit Court in Michigan sentenced Larry Nassar to 40-to-175 years in prison on seven counts of criminal sexual assault during his time serving as medical staff at Michigan State University and the USA Gymnastics. Over 150 girls, including Raisman, have alleged that Nassar abused them by using his fingers to penetrate them in their genitalia and anus and also touched their breasts. Last Friday, Randywas in court his daughter who was giving her victim impact statement.

Republicans and Democrats on the U.S. House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform on Thursday said they want to understand what failed within each of the groups and why.

She watched each woman's testimony to get a sense of their personalities - a defiant look, a smile at loved ones, or a smirk at the fact that they would be leaving the courtroom, while Nassar would most likely die in prison. He apologized to the judge and said he lost control.

Nassar worked at Michigan State University and was team doctor for female Olympic gymnasts.

As for the rest of the world, what we know is there have been 70 statements made to Nassar about his actions, with at least 50 more waiting on their time to show their demon how strong they are. Cunningham said she could not grant the request, and he lunged towards Nassar.

On February 5th, Judge Janice Cunningham of Eaton County Circuit Court in MI sentenced Larry Nassar to 40 to 125 years in prison on three charges of criminal sexual misconduct. The coach was criticized for creating a hostile environment by several victims during Nassar's sentencing hearings.

He is now donating the money-more than $31,000- to victims of sexual abuse. The 60-year-old gymnastics coach could not be reached for comment.

But the culture can't be "fixed".

"I think what we've seen over the past week may have been a watershed moment in our country", Manley said.

The culture of "medals" and "money" can only be gotten rid of by fundamentally changing society from top to bottom - by the working class taking political power and carrying through a socialist revolution.
