On the heels of his headline-grabbing sentencing, former USA Gymnastics team physician Larry Nassar has even more accusers.

A Michigan judge, Janice Cunningham, said this week that more than 265 people have come forward to say they were assaulted by Nassar, the Lansing State Journal reported. Cunningham gave the numbers as a new hearing for the disgraced doctor began.

Previously, the total number of victims was less than 200, but more women and girls have been coming forward since Nassar's sentencing in Lansing last week, when he was forced to listen to impact statements from those he assaulted. He told Judge Rosemarie Aquilina he wasn't sure he could handle hearing all their statements.

Nassar was sentenced to up to 175 years in prison for molesting the dozens of girls who were in his care over the years.

Nassar is now facing a hearing that centers on alleged sexual assaults at Twistars, a gymnastics club in Lansing operated by 2012 Olympics coach John Geddert. Nassar has admitted to sexually abusing three girls in this case.

About 60 women and girls plan to deliver victim impact statements in this case.
