Larry Nassar will be back in court to face 57 more victims in Michigan

(CNN) The legal reckoning with Larry Nassar's years of sexual abuse isn't over.
Nassar, the longtime former team doctor for USA Gymnastics and faculty member at Michigan State University, will return to court Wednesday morning for sentencing in Eaton County, Michigan, where he has pleaded guilty to three counts of criminal sexual conduct.
The Michigan attorney general's office said 57 victims are expected to speak out in court about Nassar's abuse, according to Eaton County Court Administrator Beryl Frenger.
The court has already set aside three days for victim impact statements, and the hearing is expected to go into next week to give each victim time to speak, Frenger said.
The sentencing in Eaton County is likely to be similar to the remarkable victim impact statements in nearby Ingham County over the past two weeks.
There, more than 150 young women spoke to the court -- and a rapt American public -- about how Nassar used his position of influence to molest young girls.
This week's court appearance will be Nassar's third criminal sentencing hearing in the last few months.
Nassar pleaded guilty to seven counts of criminal sexual conduct in Ingham County and was sentenced last week to 40 to 175 years in prison. He also pleaded guilty to child pornography charges in federal court and was sentenced in December to 60 years in prison.
