The former ceo of the American turnbond, USA Gymnastics, is Wednesday arrested because he tampered with evidence in the mega trial around the years of abuse by team doctor Larry Nassar.
Steve Penny would evidence withheld or destroyed, according to the indictment by a court in Texas. ‘To date, the documents cannot be found’, this is in a press release from the court.
The man is risking, therefore, to ten years in prison.
Former team doctor Larry Nassar made himself guilty of large-scale sexual abuse of women and girls, including several olympic kampioenes. More than 160 women and children accused him of abuse, Nassar was early this year sentenced to a term of imprisonment of 40 to 175 years.
