USA Gymnast Aly Raisman Says Team Doctor Sexually Abused Her

Another Olympic gymnast says she was sexually abused by a former doctor who was with the U.S. women's gymnastics team.

During an interview with "60 Minutes" scheduled to air Sunday, Aly Raisman accused Dr. Larry Nassar of abuse.

The six-time Olympic medalist said Nassar first threatened her when she was 15.

Nassar worked as a USA Gymnastics team physician for decades. He's been accused of sexually assaulting dozens of women and girls, including Raisman's 2012 Olympic teammate McKayla Maroney.

Earlier this year, Nassar pleaded guilty to federal child pornography charges, and his sentencing is scheduled for later this month. He also faces 22 counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct in a separate case in Michigan.
