Read Olympic gold medalist McKayla Maroney's impact statement against Nassar”

'It started when I was 13 years old, at one of my first national team training camps, in Texas, and it didn't end until I left the sport, ' McKayla Maroney wrote in her letter to the court. "I will always support him through these trials and tribulations".

Federal prosecutors are seeking a 60-year sentence Thursday for Larry Nassar, who had more than 37,000 images of child porn on electronic devices.

Olympic gymnastics gold medallist McKayla Maroney says the former United States team doctor facing child porn and sexual assault charges "deserves to spend the rest of his life in prison".

He has also pleaded guilty to 10 counts of sexual assault in two other cases in MI, admitting that he abused young athletes under the guise of offering medical treatment.

"When I first met Larry Nassar". "I implore you to do your part to exercise your power to the fullest extent.

Dr. Nassar told me that I was receiving 'medically necessary treatment that he had been performing on patients for over 30 years, '" Maroney said in a victim statement to Neff.

He also faces sentencing from state judges in Ingham and Eaton counties for 10 charges of first-degree criminal sexual conduct involving nine young women.

Nassar in July pleaded guilty in federal court in western MI after investigators found more than 37,000 images of child porn on his electronic devices. Some of the women who wished to make a statment during the hearing, including former Olympian McKayla Maroney, will attend still attend court on Thursday and give a press conference afterwards.

Another video showed Nassar with a young girl in a swimsuit, his hand on her hip and his thumb in her vaginal area, the agent testified.

"He abused my trust, abused my body and left scars on my psyche that may never heal", McKayla Maroney said in her letter. It seemed whenever and wherever this man could find the chance, I was "treated".

"It happened in London before my team and I won the gold medal, and it happened before I won my silver medal", McKayla wrote, describing the times she says Nassar sexually assaulted her during the 2012 London Olympics.

"These are questions that keep my husband and I up at night".

"We now know that was a lie", she wrote. She said to me, 'Mom I thought I was going to die'.

"Our daughter was totally failed by USA Gymnastics, by Michigan State University and by the U.S. Olympic Committee".

"MSU entered mediation in good faith, but as a public institution, it must be a responsible steward of its resources", says MSU spokesman Jason Cody. The letters detail the lasting damage done to Maroney by Nassar.

"I tried to improve myself", he said. "But at this point, we are preparing to put this matter in front of a jury".

"He should never have access to children again", Judge Neff said during court proceedings.

Erin and her husband were told they were not allowed to stay with their daughter at competitions overseas nor on the Karyoli Ranch, the U.S. team's training centre in Huntsville, Texas named after former coaches Bela and Marta Karyoli, where McKayla says Nassar first abused her. His sentencing is set before Judge Janet Neff at 11 a.m.
