"And I think that's important", he said.

Michigan State spokesman Jason Cody said the university "unequivocally denies" accusations that it covered up misconduct by school administrators.

She also said she's not buying his apology.

"We are more than a year from my police report".

"For all those involved, I'm so horribly sorry that this was like a match that turned into a forest fire out of control", Nassar said in a MI courtroom while entering his plea.

The criminal cases against Nassar followed reports previous year in The Indianapolis Star about how USA Gymnastics, which trains Olympians, mishandled complaints about sexual misconduct involving the doctor and coaches.

Nassar must also await a separate sentencing on federal child pornography charges in a hearing scheduled for Monday.

Nassar offered a statement of remorse and told the court he hopes his guilty plea will help the community move forward and heal. I have no animosity towards anyone. I just want healing. "I want the community to heal".

Ms. Maroney was the first of the gold medal-winning gymnasts to publicly accuse Dr. Nassar when she revealed details of her abuse in October, and Jamie Dantzscher, a bronze medalist from the 2000 team, was among the initial group of Dr. Nassar's accusers a year ago.

"We need to take a hard, honest look at the sport's culture, governance and leadership, so we can understand the problem and come up with solutions that will make the sport safer for current and future generations", Raisman said on Twitter shortly after Nassar's hearing. This was a man that we trusted, and he's admitting that what he did was wrong and evil.

Less than 12 hours before the Vasco Da Gama-Patna Express derailment, 14 wagons of a goods train derailed in Odisha's Khurda Road. Since Piyush Goyal took the office from former railway minister Suresh Prabhu, there has been no decrease in the rail tragedies.

USA Gymnastics released a statement expressing admiration for Douglas and her teammates "in speaking out publicly to hold a predator accountable".

Judge Rosemarie Aquilina responded: "You used your position of trust in the most vile way: to abuse children".

Ms. Raisman, who was the captain of the teams that took home gold medals for the United States at the 2012 London and 2016 Rio Olympics, has been one of Dr. Nassar's most vocal public critics, and has fiercely argued that the victims of the case should be blameless, despite some criticism they have received for waiting extended periods of time before reporting the abuse. The school's gymnastics coach, Kathie Klages, was suspended and stepped down a year ago. The document says that between February 6, 2003 and Sept, 20, 2016, Nassar was in possession of computer disks and electronic files that had thousands of images of child pornography. "Don't feel alone. No victim should". He faces 22 counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct involving at least seven victims, in addition to being sued by over 125 women in civil court who claim he sexually assaulted them under the guise of treatment, and could receive a life sentence in prison.
