Larry Nassar has been transferred to a federal prison in Sumterville, Florida.

Federal inmate tracking records indicate Nassar is at USP Coleman, a high security facility which houses 1,369 inmates.

The former MSU sports medicine doctor is serving a 60 year federal sentence on child pornography charges.

He was initially housed in a Tucson, Arizona facility, but was moved earlier this month after his lawyers said he had been attacked within hours of entering the general population.

Nassar was then sent to a Federal Transfer center in Oklahoma, before moving to USP Coleman.

If Nassar survives his 60 year federal sentence, he must then serve a 40-175 year sentence on state sexual assault charges. Nassar lost an appeal of his sentence in Ingham County on Monday.
