Former USA Gymnastics Coach Dead Following Suicide

JRCF29

Gymnastics coach John Geddert was found dead Thursday afternoon, just hours after prosecutors unveiled nearly two dozen sexual abuse charges against him. 

Below is an excerpt from the Buzzfeed News story:

 

"John Geddert used force, fraud, and coercion against the young athletes that came to him for gymnastics training for financial benefit to him," Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel said in a Thursday news conference.

"The victims suffer from disordered eating, including bulimia and anorexia, suicide attempts, and self-harm," Nessel said.

According to Nessel, Geddert subjected the gymnasts to "excessive physical conditioning, repeatedly being forced to perform even while injured, extreme emotional abuse, and physical abuse, including sexual assault."

He is also accused of lying to law enforcement about his knowledge of the crimes committed by the former USA gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar, who was sentenced to up to 175 years behind bars for sexually abusing young athletes.

Isn't this the second time in somewhat recent years a US Olympic gymnastics coach was found to be abusive? Absolutely awful.

He's done abusing children. Too bad he wasn't stopped years ago.
