CHARLOTTE, Mich. -- Former Michigan State University and USA Gymnastics Olympics Team doctor Larry Nassar was in court Wednesday morning to plead guilty to 3 additional criminal sexual conduct charges.

These additional charges are for cases in Eaton County. Other charges were dropped as part of a plea agreement.

Last week, Nassar plead guilty to seven charges of CSC in Ingham County and could face a minimum of 25 years in prison.

Following the hearing, an attorney representing the victims spoke about the case and how he feels Michigan State University needs to be held accountable.

Attorny Adam Sturdivant said, "We're aware of some statements that [MSU is] changing policies and things of that nature. There were policies in place - maybe weak policies - before. It's not just about having policies."

"It's about educating people when you see a young child or you hear a young child say, 'I've been touched inappropriately' or something else happens that is disturbing, the policy is in place but you have to take action. Someone needs to report. Someone needs to investigate. Someone needs to follow up."​
