Larry Nassar sentencing: Olympians Jordyn Wieber, Aly Raisman deliver powerful testimony

Raisman first said she was abused by Nassar in an interview with "60 Minutes" in November and detailed her experience in her book, "Fierce".

The ranch is the home of former national team coordinator Martha Karolyi and her husband, Bella.

Raisman and the other women all said Nassar molested them when providing them with treatment for injuries at Karolyi Ranch, the training center for the US national team run by Bela and Martha Karolyi.

Nassar was sentenced last month to 60 years in prison on federal child pornography charges and is set to be sentenced this week in MI after pleading guilty to additional counts of criminal sexual conduct related to allegations he assaulted girls under the guise of medical treatment. Since Tuesday, Judge Rosemarie Aquilina has been listening to dozens of young women who were molested after seeking his help for injuries.

Nassar told Aquilina that the letter was "cathartic" and was written prior to appearing in court.

Nassar faces a minimum sentence of 25 to 40 years in prison. In all, 105 women are expected to speak about Nassar's abuse, according to prosecutors.

Republican and Democratic leaders in the state Legislature are all calling for the removal of Michigan State University President Lou Anna Simon.

In Michigan, it's another day of testimony from victims of former Olympic doctor Larry Nassar. A fourth leader previously called for Simon's resignation.

Wieber said Nassar was subjected to his medical treatments every single month.

A university spokesman says the board of trustees appreciates lawmakers' opinions but still supports Simon, who attended the sentencing Wednesday.

She added that Nassar had unfettered access to gymnasts - he was the only male allowed at the national team training camp in Texas and was sometimes left unaccompanied in their hotel rooms.

American gymnast Jordyn Wieber said she, too, was sexually abused by Larry Nassar during her time at USA Gymnastics, the gold medalist said in court Friday. In it, Biles, the 20-year-old who won four gold medals in 2016, including in the all-around, explained how hard it would be to return to the Karolyi Ranch as part of her preparation for the 2020 Tokyo Games. "Come to find out, [USA Gymnastics] didn't report it right away", she said.

Nassar could be sentenced Friday.
