"He would buy me little things, so I really thought he was a nice person," Raisman said. "I really thought he was looking out for me. That's why I want to do this interview. I want to talk about it. I want people to know that just because someone is nice to you, and just because everyone is saying they are the best person, it does not make it OK for them to ever make you uncomfortable, ever."

Maroney penned a letter to the court, lobbying for Nassar to spend the rest of his life imprisoned.

"It started when I was 13 years old, at one of my first national team training camps, in Texas, and it didn't end until I left the sport," Maroney wrote. "Because the national team training camps did not allow parents to be present, my mom and dad were unable to observe what Nassar was doing.

"He abused my trust, abused my body, and left scars on my psyche that may never heal. Larry Nassar deserves to spend the rest of his life in prison."

The leader of the U.S. Olympic Committee says in a letter he was not aware of the Larry Nassar sex-abuse allegations before law enforcement got involved, and that he had no knowledge of a settlement between USA Gymnastics and 2012 Olympic champion McKayla Maroney in a case involving the now-imprisoned former team doctor. CEO Scott Blackmun sent the letter, a copy of which was obtained by The Associated Press, to key administrators and others in the U.S. Olympic movement on Thursday, the day after Maroney filed a lawsuit seeking to invalidate the nondisclosure clauses in the settlement.
