A new report says the U.S. Olympic Committee's security chief was told to keep quiet about claims former USA Gymnastics team doctor Larry Nassar was sexually molesting athletes.
"NBC News" reports the USOC's head of security was told in a September 2015 email that a member of the USA Gymnastics medical team was accused of sexual misconduct against star gymnasts Aly Raisman, McKayla Maroney, and teammate Maggie Nichols. Nassar's name wasn't mentioned. Then-USA Gymnastics president Steve Pennyordered the security chief not to share the information in the email with anyone else. Penny resigned last March. Nassar is in court again today for a sentencing hearing on three charges in Eaton County, Michigan, where 65 women are scheduled to speak. He was sentenced last week to as many as 175 years in prison on charges in Ingham County, Michigan. He's accused of sexually molesting more than 250 female athletes.
The USOC has yet to reach out to any of the Olympic athletes who were victimized.
