(Scroll down for video) A college professor and USA Gymnastics team physician is facing up to life in prison after allegedly sexually assaulting multiple young girls and collecting child porn, according to police in Michigan.

A federal grand jury indicted 53-year-old Lawrence Gerard Nassar, on federal child pornography charges.

Nassar was a physician for the U.S. Gymnastics Team and a professor at the Michigan State University.

According to the indictment, Nassar received and attempted to receive child pornography and he possessed thousands of images of child pornography.

If convicted of both of these charges, Nassar faces a mandatory minimum of five and up to 40 years of imprisonment. He also faces up to lifetime supervised release.

In a separate case, attorneys representing 15 alleged victims of Nassar, filed a Notice of Intent to File Claim against Nassar and the Michigan State University.

The claims arise out of multiple instances of sexual assault and battery, molestation, and harassment of girls by Nassar, an employee/agent/representative of Michigan State University.

Nassar is accused of digital penetration of girls without proper notice, gloves, lubricant, or chaperones under the guise of providing medical care and treatment at his office at Michigan State University.

Nassar used his position of trust and confidence in an abusive manner. Nassar has been charged with three counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct with a person under 13.

Nassar repeatedly assaulted a girl, beginning when she was six years old. The charges carry a maximum sentence of life imprisonment.

Nassar pleaded not guilty to the charges and his bail was set at $1,000,000.

Michigan State University failed to properly investigate, discipline and sanction Nassar for his abusive and harassing conduct.

Michigan State University is required to protect students and others from harassment and sexual assault by their employees.

An NCAA champion gymnast and former member of the United States women's national team previously filed suit, alleging that Nassar sexually assaulted and abused her while she was training at a U.S.A. Gymnastics team training center.

A medalist at the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games alleged that Nassar, while serving as the U.S.A. Gymnastics team doctor, groped and fondled the victim's private parts under the guise of performing osteopathic therapy.
