Olympic gymnast McKayla Maroney will not have to pay a $100,000 fine if she chooses to speak in court during the sentencing of former USA Gymnastics team doctor Larry Nassar, according to USA Gymnastics.
The organization released a statement on Tuesday evening saying it had no plans to hold Maroney to her nondisclosure agreement which had a penalty for violating its terms.
“This has been her right and USA Gymnastics encourages McKayla and anyone who has been abused to speak out. USA Gymnastics remains focused on our highest priority — the safety, health and well-being of our athletes and creating a culture that empowers and supports them,” the statement continued.
Reps for USA Gymnastics did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.
This week, Nassar will be sentenced in a Michigan federal court on seven counts of criminal sexual assault, which he plead guilty to in November 2016.
88 women are expected to give victim impact statements in court.
Celebrities such as Chrissy Teigen, Kristen Bell, Susan Sarandon and Parks and Recreation creator Mike Schur previously pledged their support to pay for Maroney’s $100,000 fine so that Maroney could give her victim impact statement.
