After a week in court and more than 100 victim impact statements, former sports doctor Larry Nassar's sentencing hearing is coming to a close.

"Larry, you do realize now that we, this group of women you so heartlessly abused over such a long period of time, are now a force? And you are nothing," Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman said in court.

According to CNN, court adjourned on Monday after a total of 133 victim impact statements had been delivered. And prosecutors say about 11 more statements will be read before the judge hands down Nassar's sentence.

When his hearing first started, only about 88 of his accusers or their representatives were expected to give victim impact statements in court.

As we previously reported, Nassar will be sentenced on seven first-degree criminal sexual abuse charges.

The Michigan attorney general's office asked the judge to sentence him to at least 40 years behind bars. He has already been sentenced to 60 years in prison over federal child pornography charges.
