Nassar victim says MSU is charging her for sex assault appointments
LANSING, Mich. (WJBK) - Of the 100 plus victims who have given their victim impact statements to Larry Nassar and the world, a 15-year-old girl on Monday presented a shocking claim: that Michigan State University is still billing her for her appointments where she was sexually assaulted.
Emma Ann Miller, who is only 15-years-old, stood with her mother, Leslie, by her side and addressed the disgraced former doctor and the court. She said that she's known Miller her whole life and that when she sought him for medical treatment, he sexually assaulted her.
Miller said her final treatment was in August 2016, meaning she may have been one of the final victims of Nassar before he was arrested. A week after last treatment, he was let go.
"I'm possibly the last child he will ever assault," she said.
Miller said she was seeing Nassar for treatment in 2016. Two years later, Michigan State University Sports Medicine is still billing her for those appointments, she says.
"MSU sports medicine charged me for those appointments. My mom is still getting billed for appointments where I was sexually assaulted," she testified.
Victims are sworn in before giving their testimony, meaning Miller promised to tell the truth, under penalty of perjury.
According to the Associated Press, a Michigan State spokesman says Miller's comments are being looked into, and patients of Nassar's "will not be billed."
FOX 2 is reaching out the university for comment on Miller's claims.
Officials at the school are under fire for not doing enough to stop Nassar years ago.

"He put my picture on the wall, I thought I mattered to Larry. I thought I was special. You made us all feel like we were special, but not the way we want to be special," she said.
Then she addressed Nassar.
"I have never wanted to hate someone in my life. My hate towards you is uncontrollable."
A total of 144 victims are now wanting to make statements or have them read for them in court during the marathon sentencing. It's not known yet when Nassar will be sentenced, as the judge has said she will give the chance to every survivor who wishes to speak.
Olympians Jordyn Wieber and Aly Raisman were among those who spoke on Friday. Earlier in the week, an advocate read an impact statement from McKayla Maroney.
"You are pathetic to think that anyone would have any sympathy for you. You think this is hard for you? Imagine how all of us feel," Raisman said, referring to Nassar's complaint filed earlier this week that he couldn't sit through four days of testimony.

Nassar has already been sentenced to 60 years in prison for child pornography crimes. He faces a minimum prison sentence of 25 to 40 years in the molestation case.
