Larry Nassar will face more of his victims upon returning to court this week, where he will receive sentencing for a separate case in Eaton County, Michigan, CNN reported.

The former USA Gymnastics team doctor, who previously pleaded guilty to sexually assaulting female gymnasts, was sentenced last week to decades in prison for sexual abuse, The New York Times noted.

In a separate case, Nassar pleaded guilty to three counts of sexual misconduct in a deal reached in Eaton County in November.

According to the plea agreement, the assaults took place between 2009 and 2011 at Twistars Gymnastics Club in Eaton County, with two of the victims aged between 13 and 15 and another aged younger than 13.

The gym owner, John Geddert, who was also a former coach of the U.S. women's national team, was suspended last week by USA Gymnastics, the Detroit News reported.

Three days have been set aside for victim impact statements, and 57 people are set to speak out in court against Nassar's abuse, Beryl Frenger, an administrator for the Eaton County Court said per the Daily Mail.

Eaton County Judge Janice K. Cunningham noted that there have been 265 women identified to be victims of Nassar, the Detroit News noted.

This will mark Nassar's third court appearance, having been sentenced last week to 40 to 175 years in prison after pleading guilty to seven counts of criminal sexual conduct in Ingham County, CNN noted.

In December he was sentenced to 60 years in prison after pleading guilty to child pornography charges in federal court.
