A former sports doctor at Michigan State University is accused of destroying possible evidence in the months before he was charged with possessing child pornography.

The charge was added Tuesday to Larry Nassar's indictment in federal court in western Michigan. Nassar had a clinic at Michigan State until late summer and is a former volunteer doctor with USA Gymnastics.

Besides the child porn case, he's charged in state court with assaulting a girl at his Lansing-area home.

Four females have been added to a lawsuit that accuses a Michigan doctor of sexually abusing gymnasts and other athletes during medical treatments.

The lawsuit against Dr. Larry Nassar started with 18 women and girls two weeks ago.

Nassar faces other lawsuits, but the case in western Michigan is the largest.

A former USA Gymnastics doctor and Michigan State University professor has been charged with criminal sexual assault. He was arraigned Tuesday.

Dr. Larry Nassar was the team physician for the MSU gymnastics program, and the doctor for the USA Gymnastics team for four Olympics. He faces three charges of sexually assaulting a girl who was under thirteen years old.

The alleged victim was not a patient or gymnast of Nassar’s.
