Gold medal Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman, author of Fierce: How Competing for Myself Changed Everything, was one of over 150 sexual assault survivors who spoke before the sentencing of Dr. Larry Nassar condemning USA Gymnastics and the US Olympic Committee. In her impact statement Raisman urged the judge in sentencing Nassar to “ Let this sentence strike fear in anyone who thinks it’s okay to hurt another person. Abusers, your time is up. The survivors are here, standing tall, and we are not going anywhere.”<br />
After 7 days of hearings where 156 empowered young women came forward to speak out about surviving sexual abuse, their abuser who molested them under the guise of medical treatment was sentenced to 40 to 175 years in jail by Judge Rosemarie Aquilina.<br />
