Disgraced former USA Gymnastics and Michigan State University physician Larry Nassar has been moved to another prison.

Weeks after the lawyers of the 55-year-old sexual predator claimed that he was assaulted at United States Penitentiary, Tucson, the maximum-security federal prison in Tucson, Arizona where he was serving his 60-year federal prison sentence, Nassar has been moved to United States Penitentiary, Coleman II.

United States Penitentiary, Coleman II is located in central Florida roughly 50 miles northwest of Orlando, 60 miles northeast of Tampa and 35 miles south of Ocala.

This prison is a high-security federal prison for male inmates that is a part of the Coleman Federal Correctional Complex (FCC Coleman) and is operated by the Federal Bureau of Prisons, a division of the United States Department of Justice.

Last week, Nassar was moved from United States Penitentiary, Tucson to the Federal Transfer Center, Oklahoma City in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. This center typically serves as a holdover location before inmates are moved to a new location.

The 60-year federal prison sentence that Nassar is set to continue serving at Coleman II U.S. Penitentiary was issued to him this past December by U.S. District Judge Janet Neff on three child pornography charges.

Nassar, who has been accused of sexually assaulting more than 330 individuals, many of whom female gymnasts, under the guise of medical treatment, was later issued two more lengthy prison sentences for his predatory behavior.

In January, Judge Rosemarie Aquilina sentenced Nassar to between 40 and 175 years in state prison. She issued him this state prison sentence on seven sexual assault charges following a seven-day sentencing hearing in Ingham County, Michigan during which 169 victim impact statements were delivered in front of Nassar in court.

A total of 156 of Nassar’s accusers delivered victim impact statements during this sentencing hearing. The other 13 victim impact statements were delivered on the behalves of 13 more of his accusers.

Then in February, Judge Janice Cunningham sentenced Nassar to between 40 and 125 more years in state prison on an additional three sexual assault charges. She issued him this state prison sentence following another sentencing hearing, this one a three-day sentencing hearing, during which victim impact statements were delivered in front of Nassar in court.

This sentencing hearing took place in Eaton County, Michigan, and 65 more of Nassar’s accusers delivered victim impact statements during it.

No more prison time was issued to Nassar after he was charged with six counts of second-degree sexual assault of a child in June stemming from the Károlyi Ranch investigation in Texas.
