Larry Nassar moved to prison for high-profile prisoners after alleged attack

Prison officials recently transferred to former US gymnastics. UU And the Michigan State University team physician Larry Nassar to a federal prison in Florida in an attempt to keep the convicted pedophile safe.

Until Tuesday, the Federal Bureau of Prisons website showed that Nassar is housed at USP Coleman II, a high-security prison in Sumterville, Florida, about 50 miles northwest of Orlando. The prison currently houses high-profile inmates, including James "Whitey" Bulger, an infamous Boston racketeer.

The move comes one month after Nassar's lawyers said that other inmates assaulted the former doctor while he was in the general population at the US Penitentiary in Tucson, Arizona, where he is serving his 60-year sentence on charges of child pornography. . . Last week, Nassar was transferred to a facility in Oklahoma City before moving to the new facility in Florida.

The USP Coleman II, which houses some 1,400 male inmates at the same time, is known to house high-profile or vulnerable prisoners, such as sex offenders, informants and former police officers. Historically, these types of offenders are more likely to be attacked or killed while in prison.

Nate Lindell, former prisoner of USP Coleman II, described the facility as a "safe" place for people like Nassar in a 2016 essay for The Marshall Project, a nonprofit news organization that covers the criminal justice system.

USP Coleman II is "a prison call for people with special needs – a 'secure' facility where informants, ex-policemen, former gang members, registries (prisoners who are intentionally placed in solitary confinement to be safe), homosexuals and sex offenders, Everyone can, presumably, walk freely in the yard, in regular BOP blocks, these types of men are in danger of being beaten, stabbed or strangled to death, "Lindell wrote.

Nassar, 55, is accused of sexually abusing more than 265 young women under the guise of medical treatment. He was sentenced to three concurrent prison terms during the past year, including the 60-year sentence on child pornography charges he currently serves.

His launch of the USP Coleman II is scheduled for March 2069, after which he will have to meet simultaneously from 40 to 175 years in seven accusations of Child sexual abuse, and from 40 to 125 years in three sexual children, charges of abuse.
