Last month, he was sentenced to an additional 40 to 175 years in state prison by Judge Rosemarie Aquilina in an Ingham County courtroom on seven sexual assault charges.
Complaints were filed against Geddert following the sentencing of disgraced ex-sports doctor Larry Nassar, who molested girls at Geddert's elite gymnastics club in MI.
The Eaton County Sheriff's Office said Tuesday that people recently came forward with complaints against Geddert, 60.
More than a dozen girls and women say they told an authority figure about Nassar's inappropriate behavior at some point before his arrest in September 2016.
Rachael Denhollander, the first victim to speak out against Nassar, also gave a statement last week, and was in court Monday as he was sentenced, USA Today reported.
The Nassar controversy has cast a shadow over Michigan State, with Michigan State president Lou Anna Simon resigning and athletic director Mark Hollis retiring. Eaton County Judge Janice Cunningham termed the scope of Nassar's crimes "beyond comprehension" as she issued her sentence.
He was sentenced earlier this month to 40 to 175 years in prison in a separate MI case. According to ESPN, he would not be eligible for parole until the year 2117. In a statement, Liukin said, "The present climate causes me, and more importantly my family, far too much stress, difficulty and uncertainty".More news: Pelicans agree on deal to trade for Bulls forward Nikola Mirotic
Nassar's crimes have had significant repercussions at Michigan State, USA Gymnastics, the US Olympic Committee and Twistars. "I do not believe that you will have the ability to shut out the words of the children, and the young women and the adults who trusted you and who you let down".
"You have a second chance to do the right thing", Boyce said.
"I am in awe of each of you and I appreciate your efforts to provide me with your statements, flying in from Europe, all over the country, submitting videos, taking time off of work, missing classes", she said.
He admitted abusing youngsters who sought treatment at Twistars, a gymnastics club run by a 2012 U.S. Olympic coach.
Denhollander said Monday that the survivors should now turn their attention to the "institutional dynamics" that allowed Nassar to assault girls for years, noting that numerous victims "wouldn't be here had the adults and authorities done what they should have done 20 years ago".
The investigation ultimately cleared him of misconduct, and Nassar returned to abusing patients.
USA Gymnastics said it had accepted Liukin's resignation.
"This was the first time I heard of Larry Nassar and his reputation", the former gymnast said in court Wednesday.
