Deplorable convicted sexual predator Larry Nassar would rather not hear about all the times he sexually assaulted his patients.
The former Team USA gymnastics doctor wrote a letter to the court begging to end the witness statements, saying the unsettling stories about his abusive actions are bad for his mental health. We shit you not.
As we reported, 100 women are set to give victim impact statements to the court before Nassar is sentenced for his conviction of seven felony sexual assault charges.
50 women have shared their stories so far, detailing how Nassar broke them emotionally and, in some cases, made them consider suicide. But with 51 allegedly abused women still on deck, Nassar doesn’t think he can take anymore.
The man actually wrote a letter to court officials, pleading to make it all stop — calling the court case a “media circus” that was “detrimental to his mental health.”
“I didn’t orchestrate this, you did… Spending four or five days listening to them is significantly minor considering the hours of pleasure you’ve had at their expense and ruining their lives.”
The women went ahead with their statements as planned, although one victim who wasn’t present in court on Thursday was Olympian McKayla Maroney.
On her behalf, Assistant Attorney General Angela Povilaitis read a passionate letter written by the 22-year-old, in which she wrote:
“I did it. I got there. But not without a price. … I had a dream to go Olympics and things I had to do to get there are disgusting.”
Per MLive, the statement added:
“He was not a doctor. He was a child molester. He left scars on my psyche that will never go away.”
The statement came after USA Gymnastics faced backlash when it surfaced that Maroney could face a $100,000 fine if she spoke publicly about the doctor’s abuse. On Tuesday, the organization announced it had no plans to hold Maroney to the NDA she signed in 2016 — which is a good thing, because the gymnast completely blasted the organization in her statement.
Noting that Michigan State University allowed Nassar to see patients even while under criminal investigation after a patient complained in 2014, Maroney said that USA Gymnastics and the U.S. Olympic Committee also enabled the doctor by ignoring red flags.
Maroney revealed that when two of her teammates complained about Nassar to USAG in 2015, “he was allowed to retire and MSU was never informed.” She added:
“A simple fact is this… had Michigan State, USA Gymnastics and the U.S. Olympic Committee paid attention to red flags, I would never met Larry Nassar. I would never had been abused by him… It’s time to hold leadership accountable.”
The first step in doing that? Forcing predators to listen to the repercussions of their actions.
