The doctor accused of sexually assaulting Michigan State University and USA Gymnastics athletes is due back court.

Larry Nassar has a pre-exam conference Thursday morning in Mason, Michigan. Nassar is facing 22 felony counts in this case.

An attorney says there may be more than 150 victims.

He will be back in court March 9 for a preliminary hearing.

Nassar has already been ordered to stand trial on sex assault charges in another case. That alleged victim -- a family friend who is now 25 years old -- says Nassar began abusing her when she was six years old.

Nassar has denied the all charges against him.
