Dr. Larry Nassar appears in court for a plea hearing in Lansing Mich. Wednesday Nov. 22 2017

Olympians Aly Raisman, McKayla Maroney and Gabby Douglas say they were victims when Nassar worked for USA Gymnastics and accompanied them to workouts or worldwide events.

Nassar's possession of child pornography emerged after MSU began investigating him in August 2016 after former gymnast Rachael Denhollander reported to MSU police that he sexually assaulted her in 2000, when she was 15.

Nassar, who has also pleaded guilty to seven counts of sexual assault, was sentenced to 20 years on each of the three pornography counts against him, with the time to be served consecutively. Federal Judge Janet Neff followed the government's recommended sentence Thursday.

Erin and her husband were told they were not allowed to stay with their daughter at competitions overseas nor on the Karyoli Ranch, the US team's training centre in Huntsville, Texas named after former coaches Bela and Marta Karyoli, where McKayla says Nassar first abused her.

"I didn't know anything differently", she said. "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".

"More than 140 women and girls had to say, '#MeToo' to Nassar's sexual assaults, and hundreds more were victimized to create the pornographic images that fueled his evil desires", she wrote.

"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". The judge presiding over the case has said she will read the letters privately.

"She was transformed from a bubbly, positive, loving, world-class athlete into a young adult who was deeply depressed, at times suicidal", Erin Maroney wrote. "At times, I was unsure whether I would open her bedroom door and find her dead".

John Manly, an attorney representing many women and girls in lawsuits, said negotiations with Michigan State and a mediator failed to lead to an agreement this week.

A judge has sentenced a MI sports doctor to 60 years in federal prison for child pornography crimes, one of three criminal cases against a man who also admits assaulting female gymnasts.

The child pornography was discovered previous year when Nassar was being investigated for assault. Michigan State declined to comment.

Michigan State has vehemently denied any allegations of covering up Nassar's behavior. "He abused my trust, abused my body and left scars on my psyche that may never heal", she wrote. He could face life in prison when he is sentenced on those charges next month.
