Nassar was a doctor for USA Gymnastics since the '90s, and was accused of sexual assault by more than 100 women. In December 2017, Nassar was sentenced to 60 years in federal prison for child pornography crimes.
In October, Maroney first spoke out about her alleged sexual abuse in a statement.
The following month, Maroney's teammate, Aly Raisman, came forward with allegations against Nassar. She later wrote a letter titled "This Is Survival" that detailed her experience and referring to Nassar as "the worst example of humanity." During that month, Gabby Douglas also alleged that Nassar abused her.
"I too am one of the many survivors that was sexually abused by Larry Nassar," she wrote. "Please believe me when I say it was a lot harder to first speak those words out loud than it is now to put them on paper. There are many reasons that l have been reluctant to share my story, but I know now it is not my fault."
