5 women now accuse former USA Gymnastics doctor of sexual abuse

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- More women are coming forward with sexual abuse allegations against a former USA Gymnastics team doctor.

Dr. Larry Nassar is accused of abusing Rachael Denhollander of Louisville, as well as another teenage gymnast.

Denhollander says Nassar abused her in 2000 when she was 15 while getting treatment at Michigan State University, where Dr. Nassar worked.

Now, four other women claim he sexually abused them while he was a faculty member at Michigan State. Dr. Nassar denies any wrongdoing.

He was fired from the university last week for "not complying with certain employment requirements."
