First male victim accuses Larry Nassar of sexual abuse

The first male victim has alleged that former doctor Larry Nassar sexually abused him as part of the U.S. gymnastics program.

An amended federal court complaint included Jacob Moore, a former male gymnast, as part of a complaint against Nasser, U.S. Gymnastics and Michigan State University, where Nassar worked.

The complaint, first reported by International Gymnast Magazine, said that Moore was 15 when he went to the doctor with a shoulder injury in 2016, but that Nassar pulled down his pants and exposed him to a female gymnast.

Nassar also allegedly decided to treat the shoulder injury with acupuncture to Moore’s groin and genitals.

Moore’s older sister Kamerin Moore is also part of the federal civil complaint against the abusive medical practitioner, who will spend the rest of his life in prison after being sentenced to up to 300 years in different courts.

Rachael Denhollander, who spoke at the sentencing hearing, is the lead plaintiff in the civil suit, and is one of more than 200 victims that a Michigan judge said had alleged abuse.

Denhollander, who became a lawyer, said she was abused as a gymnast in 2000, and slammed those kept Nassar in a position to continue sexual assaults despite multiple victims coming forward.
