A doctor who specialized in treating female gymnasts at Michigan State University and through the elite USA Gymnastics organization was charged Wednesday with sexual assault.
Online records show Dr Larry Nasser is facing nine charges in Ingham County, including first-degree criminal sexual conduct in 2015 against a victim under age 13.
Nasser is also charged in nearby Eaton County, where three females say he molested them with his hands at a gymnastics club during treatments for various injuries, according to a police affidavit. They were young girls or teens at the time.
No other details about Nasser’s accusers were immediately available.
Bill Schuette, Michigan’s attorney-general, plans to talk to reporters at a 2.30pm news conference. A message seeking comment was left for Nassar’s lawyer.
Nassar, 53, had a clinic at Michigan State, in Ingham County, where he treated members of the gymnastics team and younger regional gymnasts. He also was a doctor for USA Gymnastics, which trains Olympians. Dozens of women and girls say they were assaulted. Nassar denies the allegations.
