EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) An investigation by Michigan State University has concluded that a sports doctor sexually assaulted a teen gymnast during treatments for back pain in 2000.
Lawyers for Rachael Denhollander released the report Tuesday night. Based on interviews with Denhollander and others, the report says Larry Nassar did not have consent to touch her sexually.
Nassar was interviewed last September, just days before he was fired by Michigan State. He couldn't recall his visits with Denhollander, but he denied anything improper. He wondered why she didn't complain.
Nassar and Michigan State are being sued by dozens of females, including Denhollander, who has publicly identified herself as a victim. Separately, Nassar is charged with sexually assaulting 10 girls and possessing child pornography. He's in jail without bond.
