No matter what, alleged victims have the right to remain anonymous…

As we reported on November 29, NBC News announced they terminated Matt Lauer for "inappropriate sexual behavior" regarding an alleged incident that began at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia.

To this day, the identity of Lauer's accuser has not been revealed… and that's exactly how she wants it.

On Friday, the alleged victim's lawyer Ari Wilkenfeld spoke to NBC News where he says his client is "terrified" she will be outed.

"My client is terrified, and she does live in constant fear that people are going to track her down and figure out who she is… She feels badly for the many other women who are suspected of being her—who are also being hounded and harassed."

When the unnamed woman made her claims to NBC, she wanted the company to "do the right thing," and to keep her identity confidential. However, Wilkenfeld says the network hasn't been doing a good job with the latter.

McKayla Maroney

McKayla Maroney is sharing her story in hopes Larry Nassar gets the maximum punishment for sexually assaulting his young USA Gymnastics patients.

The 21-year-old and her mother delivered victim-impact statements in the form of letters to the federal judge presiding over the case against the disgraced team doctor who sexually abused McKayla and her teammates for years.

Erin Maroney described the severe impact Nassar's abuse had on her daughter:

"This experience has shattered McKayla. She has transformed from a bubbly, positive, loving, world class athlete into a young adult who was deeply depressed, at times suicidal. At times, I was unsure whether I would open her bedroom door and find her dead."

We can't even imagine how painful it must be to have to write that about your child.
