The USOC has announced an independent investigation into its own conduct and that of USA Gymnastics. Just shortly after the judge said no, that is when he tried to harm Nassar.

Raisman said she was not sure if Geddert attempted to stop Nassar from the abuse after the auto conversation but she was certain he never asked the athletes any questions. Letters requesting the information were sent to the gymnastics governing bodies, Michigan State University, Karolyi Training Camps and Gedderts' Twistars USA Gymnastics Club.

MI prosecutors aren't planning to bring additional sexual assault charges against imprisoned sports doctor Larry Nassar, even though abuse allegations are still being reported.

The "eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth" atmosphere around Nassar was also on display at his third trial in MI, where he was sentenced to an additional 40 to 125 years for sexual abuse at the Twistars Gymnastics Club.

Raisman also criticized the lack of attention on behalf of USA Gymnastics and the United States Olympic Committee (USOC) to keep its gymnasts' safe from abuse.

During victim testimonies in court, numerous women who confronted Nassar, including Raisman, also took U.S.A. Gymnastics to task for turning a blind eye to his misconduct.

Sarah Dvojack was hooked on gymnastics as a year-old girl watching the 1996 Summer Olympics, and she's been in love ever since.

"We would talk about it amongst ourselves", Raisman told CNN.

The Eaton County Sheriff's Office said people had made complaints against John Geddert, without providing details.

Former Michigan State president Lou Anna Simon, athletic director Mark Hollis and gymnastics coach Kathie Klages have also resigned in the wake of the scandal. Mukherji oversees the MSU health team, which includes the sports clinic where Nassar worked.

Nassar, 54, was sentenced to 60 years in federal prison on three counts of child pornography in December before being sentenced to 40 to 175 years in state prison on seven counts of sexual assault in January and 40 to 125 more years in state prison on three more counts of sexual assault earlier this month.
