A former US Olympics gymnastics coach who worked alongside sicko sports doctor Larry Nasser was arrested by law enforcement authorities in Michigan on Thursday, a report said.
Details about the charges against former coach John Geddert were not immediately released, but Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel is expected to speak about the case at a 1 p.m. press conference.
Geddert has denied any wrongdoing — and dodged charges after being investigated in the past — but several gymnasts have alleged he forced them to visit Nasser and was physically abusive.
Earlier this month, a spokesperson for the Eaton County Sheriff’s Office said several people had come forward with allegations against Geddert and that prosecutors were investigating the claims.
Geddert, who coached for the gold medal-winning 2012 Olympic team, ran Twistars Gymnastics Club in Dimondale, Mich., where Nassar volunteered.
At Nasser’s sentencing in 2018, an accuser of the sexual predator said in a statement that was read aloud in court that Geddert was aware Nasser abused her in the 1990s.
Nasser, a sports doctor for Michigan State University, was convicted of abusing dozens gymnasts and for possessing child pornography. He was sentenced to dozens of years in prison for carrying out the abuse, which prosecutors said was part of an orchestrated plan for his own sick sexual gratification.
“The defendant methodically planned and carried out years of molestation against children,” Michigan Judge Janice Cunningham said when sentencing Nasser in 2018.
“I am not convinced that you truly understand that what you did was wrong and the devastating impact that you had on the victims, their families and friends,” she added.
“There is absolutely no question that society must be protected [from] Larry Nassar,” Cunningham said.
More than 60 victims of the fiend read statements about the abuse he carried out prior to his sentencing — and Nasser was nearly attacked by a raging father who lunged at him in the Michigan courtroom before being subdued by police officers.
