Book reveals new details of how USAG concealed Nassar complaints
Notes and email exchanges show former USA Gymnastics president and CEO Steve Penny passed up a chance to warn the public about Larry Nassar's alleged sexual abuse
ESPN

Quote:
In the summer of 2015, nearly a year before the Larry Nassar sexual assault scandal erupted publicly, former USA Gymnastics president and CEO Steve Penny had detailed and disturbing notes about the team doctor's alleged sexual assault of Olympian McKayla Maroney, according to a new book by ESPN investigative reporters Dan Murphy and John Barr.

Notes and email exchanges from the summer and fall of 2015, obtained by the authors and published Tuesday in the book "Start by Believing," are among a series of previously unreported documents and interviews that help reveal the extent to which USA Gymnastics' former leader and others were willing to go to contain the emerging scandal. Those documents show Penny was aware that Maroney had said she "felt no therapeutic effect but felt [Nassar] was getting sexual gratification" by penetrating her with his fingers on several occasions. Even though he was aware of that detail, Penny passed up a chance to warn Nassar's full-time employer, Michigan State, and the public about the alleged misconduct.

(emphasis added in bold)

--- Penny, who is awaiting trial on evidence-tampering charges for a separate incident related to the Nassar case, opted to stay silent.

--- Nassar continued to see patients at Michigan State University for nearly another year. Dozens of women and girls who visited Nassar during that time period said he assaulted them.
