Former USA Gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar was sentenced to an additional 40 to 125 years in prison in a Michigan courtroom on Monday for sexually abusing young female gymnasts, following an earlier sentence of up to 175 years last month.

The case against Nassar has sparked investigations into how US Olympic officials, the sport's governing body USA Gymnastics, and Michigan State University, where he also worked, failed to investigate complaints about him going back years.

Nassar, who is also serving a 60-year federal sentence for child pornography convictions, pleaded guilty to two sets of molestation charges in Michigan's Ingham and Eaton counties.
