Meet Preston, the therapy dog comforting Larry Nassar's victims”

Paul Parilla, Jay Binder and Bitsy Kelley announced they were stepping down as testimony in Nassar's sentencing hearing in MI moved into its second week.

The moves come as scores of sexual assault victims testify against former team doctor Larry Nassar at Ingram County Circuit Court in Lansing, Mich.

"We believe this step will allow us to more effectively move forward in implementing change within our organization", she said.

"I hope that the right person was convicted and I have to say, though, that I have the utmost - the utmost faith and respect - for the leadership of our president, too, at Michigan State".

"I'm possibly the last child he will ever assault", she said.

USA Gymnastics Board Chairman Paul Parilla was among three officials who resigned Monday.

She and her mother, Leslie, both said the Michigan State sports clinic is attempting to bill their family for that appointment. "But you accepted the position of president and CEO of USA Gymnastics, and I assume by now you are very well aware of the weighty responsibility you've taken on", Raisman said in her statement. "I, and so many others, would never have met you", Raisman said.

She is among more than 100 women and girls who have given statements at Nassar's sentencing hearing in MI or have had statements read on their behalf.

Nassar admitted to molesting athletes during treatment when he was employed by Michigan State University and USA Gymnastics, which trains Olympians.

"Larry, you do realize now that we, this group of women you so heartlessly abused over such a long period of time, are now a force, and you are nothing", she said, looking directly at him during a hearing on Friday.

On Friday, Olympic gold medallist Aly Raisman blasted USA gymnastics officials for failing to protect her and other women from years of sexual abuse, calling the governing body "rotten from the inside". "It's so disturbing and disgusting that the abuse happened, but it's equally disturbing and disgusting the way it was handled".

A camp scheduled to begin Monday at the ranch has been canceled, according to USA Gymnastics.

Larry Nassar is escorted into the courtroom last Thursday.

One of his victims, Olympic gold medalist Aly Raisman, warned Nassar in her testimony that statements from the "powerful army" of survivors will haunt him in prison. "He has already been sentenced to 60 years in prison for child pornography in a federal case". "My overall message was, and remains, that I have tremendous admiration for the courage the survivors have shown, and that Larry Nassar has permanently damaged the lives of so many people and deserves all the punishment that he receives".
