A motion filed Wednesday by the US Justice Department said that since Nassar’s incarceration, he had received deposits into his inmate trust account that reached $12,825, including two stimulus checks totaling $2,000.
As of Wednesday, Nassar had $2,041.57 in his account, according to the motion. It is unclear where the additional money — more than $10,000 — went.
He is currently serving his federal sentence in the US Penitentiary in Sumterville, Florida.
Despite having money in his account, Nassar has only paid $300 toward the more than $62,000 he was ordered to pay, according to the motion. He was ordered to pay $57,488.52 in restitution to five victims in the child pornography case, along with an extra $5,000 for a special assessment fee pursuant to the Justice for Victims of Trafficking Act of 2015, the motion read.
All of Nassar’s payments toward his restitution have been “in the form of the minimum $25.00 quarterly payments based on his participation” in the Inmate Financial Responsibility Program, the motion said.
“In other words, Nassar has paid approximately $8.33 toward his criminal monetary penalties per month,” the motion said.
The motion requests that the court order the Bureau of Prisons to turn over the funds in his account, up to $62,488.52, to be applied to his outstanding restitution and special assessment debt.
Included with the motion was a letter from the US Marshal Service on July 22 to the warden at US Penitentiary Colemen II in Sumterville, requesting that “all outbound financial transactions and withdrawals from his trust account be frozen pending further order of this Court,” the motion reads.
CNN has reached out to the Bureau of Prisons for comment.
Attorneys who represented many of Nassar’s victims were appalled by the news.
“The notion that anybody in the Justice Department would let this happen is just revolting,” said John Manly, a lawyer for many of Nassar’s victims, including Simone Biles. “The timing of this, with my client being unable to compete because of what happened to her, couldn’t be more upsetting. … They’re allowing the worst child predator in American history to spend thousands of dollars on himself and pay $8 a month to his victims. Something is completely broken and needs to be fixed.”
Alex E. Cunny, one of the attorneys who represents more than 150 of the girls and women who say Nassar sexually assaulted them, told CNN that it was another “shocking revelation” on the part of the Justice Department.
“The idea that Nassar is spending money on himself and not the women he has abused is unacceptable, especially, coming off the heels of the Inspector General’s report on how the FBI handled the initial investigation is another shocking revelation. How many ways will the Justice Department let the victims down?” Cunny said.
The probe was opened in 2018 to see whether the FBI and its field offices dragged their feet to respond to allegations of sexual assault made by gymnasts and the USA Gymnastics organization in 2015 and 2016.
