Nassar was the longtime team physician for USA Gymnastics with a busy sports-medicine practice at Michigan State University.
In a statement after the plea in court on Wednesday, Vassar's attorneys, Matt Newburg and Shannon Smith, said the "agreement resolves all the charged and uncharged conduct for more than 125 cases now under investigation by the Michigan Attorney General's office".
"I didn't know anything differently", Raisman said, per the New York Post'sMark Moore.
"You have failed to hold anyone accountable for allowing a pedophile to flourish for decades", she said.
The Michigan criminal cases against Nassar followed reports a year ago in the Indianapolis Star about how USA Gymnastics, which trains Olympians, mishandled complaints about sexual misconduct involving the doctor and coaches. Officials who ignored repeated reports of sexual assaults.
Separately, Nassar is also awaiting sentencing on federal charges of receiving child pornography, possessing child pornography and a charge that he hid and destroyed evidence in the case. "Officials who brushed the victims off as unable to tell the difference between a medical exam and sexual violation".
Nassar's case was part of a wide-ranging scandal which forced the resignation of USA Gymnastics chief Steve Penny in March.
