Larry Nassar listens as lead prosecutor Angela Povilaitis makes her closing statements Monday the third and final day of sentencing in Eaton County Court in Charlotte, Mich., where Nassar will be sentenced on three counts of sexual assault.
That's in addition to seven counts in Ingham County, for which he was sentenced to 40-175 years. Nassar was previously sentenced December 7 to 60 years in prison for child pornography.
Nassar worked as an athletic doctor for several sports teams at Holt Public Schools through a contract with Michigan State University until September 2016, according to the school district. Geddert was suspended by USA Gymnastics in January. During victim impact statements at Nassar's trials, multiple women blamed Geddert for not doing more to prevent the abuse that occurred at his gym.
A judge sentenced Nassar on Monday morning in a case out of Eaton County, Michigan.
Michigan State fired him in September of the same year.

Geddert worked alongside Nassar, a convicted sexual predator accused of molesting hundreds of girls and young women for almost 30 years at two different gyms, as they rose together through the ranks of the gymnastics world.
The Eaton County Sheriff's Office said Tuesday that people have recently come forward with complaints against Geddert.
"A pedophile can not flourish in the way Larry did and in an environment that is not conducive to his behavior", she said. At Mr Nassar's sentencing hearing, several ex-Twistars gymnasts accused Mr Geddert of being physically abusive, ignoring their injuries, and preventing them from seeing other doctors. In court on Monday, Mr. Nassar did not explicitly say he had done anything wrong. The remaining board members of USA Gymnastics were forced to resign amid pressure from the United States Olympic committee, which threatened to remove USA Gymnastics's accreditation as the official governing body of the sport if it did not clean house, and meet additional safety and transparency standards.
According to the paper, the FBI did not provide detailed answers to questions about the investigation but said the sexual exploitation of children "is an especially heinous crime", and that "the safety and well-being of our youth is a top priority for the F.B.I".
