Larry Nassar was transferred to a high security federal prison in Tucson according to Federal Prison Database. This database also released the release date for Nassar as March 23 2069.

Wilmot Road

Nassar also faces 175 years in MI state prison if ever gets released from federal prison. The Tucson prison has around 1500 inmates and also includes an adjacent minimum security satellite camp.

One of the famous inmate here is Brian Mitchell who kidnapped Elizabeth Smart in 2002 and help her captive for years.

This same prison also had Randy Duke Cunningham the congressman who served 7 years for taking bribe. Another inmate Mayor Philip Geordano from Waterbuy is also currently serving his 37 years sentence for forcing minors to perform sexual activities.

According to the Bureau of Prisons, “The Tucson Prison opened in 2007 and houses 1,536 inmates -- 1,387 in the main prison and 149 at a minimum-security satellite camp” This prison is one of the 9 in federal system which offers SOMP or the Sex Offender Management Program. It offers the "non-residential treatment," consisting of out patient groups meeting 2-3 times a week for several hours. According to the program description, "Participants learn basic skills and concepts to help them understand their past offenses and to reduce risk of future offending. This treatment is offered to offenders evaluated to have low to moderate risk of reoffending”
