Aly Raisman, Jordyn Wieber confront Larry Nassar at sentencing Aly Raisman, Jordyn Wieber confront Larry Nassar at sentencing

"I'm angry with myself for not recognizing the abuse and that's something I'm struggling with today", she said.

"Continuing to issue statements of empty promises thinking that will pacify us will no longer work", Raisman said. I am here to face you, Larry, so you can see I have regained my strength.

The 54-year-old Nassar faces a minimum sentence of 25 to 40 years in prison for molesting girls at Michigan State University and his home.

Nassar, who is accused of sexually abusing almost 150 women under the guise of treatment, was sentenced to 60 years in prison in December in a separate child pornography case.

By the end of Nassar's four-day sentencing hearing, more than 100 victims will stand before him to share how they were affected by his crimes.

Jordyn Wieber is the fourth member of the Fierce Five, the winning 2012 Summer Olympics squad, to accuse him. And now the people who are responsible need to accept responsibility for the pain they have caused me and the rest of the women who have been abused.

"You are pathetic to think that anybody would have any sympathy", Raisman said.

"Larry, you do realize now that we - this group of women you so heartlessly abused over such a long period of time - are now a force, and you are nothing. I have power and a voice and I am only just beginning to use them".

A 2000 Olympian, Jamie Dantzscher, looked at Nassar and said, "How dare you ask any of us for forgiveness?"

"Although I personally have not suffered any physical assault or sexual abuse while competing as a gymnast, my heart goes out to McKayla and the victims like her who have endured this abuse of power", she said. Maroney filed a lawsuit Wednesday, Dec. 20, 2017, in Los Angeles, against the United States Olympic Committee and USA Gymnastics.

Her teammate, Ms Raisman, delivered a stirring speech on Friday, calling the women who have come forward an "army of survivors".

"So at this point, talk is worthless to me. None of us really understood it". "It's clear now that if we leave it up to these organizations, history is likely to repeat itself".

It's unclear to whom the letter was addressed, but Ingham County Circuit Court Judge Rosemarie Aquilina discussed the letter this morning at the start of the third day of Nassar's sentencing hearing. She concluded by asking the judge to impose "the strongest possible sentence".

"Where is the honesty?" she said. "They will be exposed for the evil they are, and they will be punished to the maximum extent of the law".
