TX Gov Calls for Investigation of USAG Ranch
TEXAS GOVERNOR ASKS STATE POLICE TO INVESTIGATE FACILITY WHERE GYMNASTS SAY DR. LARRY NASSAR SEXUALLY ABUSED THEM
(CNN) – Texas Governor Greg Abbott is asking state police to investigate the Karolyi ranch.
The facility outside of Houston was previously used as a National Training Center for Gymnasts on the U.S. Olympic team.
Some of the more than 100 women who accused team physician doctor Larry Nassar of sexually assaulting them say the abuse happened there.
Nassar pleaded guilty to seven sexual misconduct charges and was sentenced to up to 175 years in prison earlier this month.
Governor Abbott wants to investigate all of the allegations.
He says since the crimes cross multiple jurisdictions, the Texas rangers should lead the investigation.
