The Department of Justice has decided not to charge the FBI agents who for months failed to properly investigate serious sexual abuse accusations against former USA Gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar. This comes after a report in July 2021 found Indianapolis FBI officials failed to follow up with key witnesses or alert other law enforcement agencies of the crimes. The neglect led to Nassar abusing or assaulting more than 100 other gymnasts between the time the FBI first heard of the accusations in 2015 until Nassar’s arrest the following year. The two FBI agents also made false statements and omitted key information in trying to hide failures in the Nassar investigation.
