A male gymnast has joined the hundreds of young women accusing former USA Gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar of sexual abuse.
Jacob Moore, an 18-year-old freshman at the University of Michigan, has come forward claiming Nasser performed acupuncture on his pubic area and asked a female gymnast who was present if she’d ever seen a male body part.

“I wasn’t a dumb kid,” Moore, who was 16 at the time, told NBC News. “I knew what medical practices were, and that one was out of the ordinary… I felt very uncomfortable.”
Moore’s sister Kameron also claims she was one of Nassar’s victims: She was one of the victims who provided testimony at his sentencing in January—and mentioned Jacob. “Me and my sister shouldn’t be able to relate over the fact that we’ve both been abused,” he says. “I hope he rots in hell.”
Nassar, a physician with both USA Gymnastics and Michigan State University was sentenced to a maximum of 175 years in prison.
