Nassar's jail time begins at high-security federal prison in Arizona
Ex-MSU and USA Gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar will begin his life behind bars at a high-security federal prison in Tuscon, Arizona that specializes in treating sex offenders.
According to the Federal Bureau of Prisons, or BOP, Nassar has been transferred from a facility in Michigan to a facility in Tuscon, Arizona, where he will start a 60-year sentence for child pornography crimes.
The prison is one of nine other prisons that offer a Sex Offender Management Program, or SOMP, according to the BOP website.
The Tuscon prison offers a "Residential Sex Offender Treatment Program," which involves high intensity programming for a period of 12 to 18 months, according to the program's description.
"Participants learn basic skills and concepts to help them understand their past offenses and to reduce risk of future offending," the description of the program offered at the prison reads. "This treatment is offered to offenders evaluated to have low to moderate risk of reoffending."
However, according to the website, the program is offered "to offenders with a history of sexual offending and who volunteer for treatment."
It is not known whether Nassar has volunteered for this treatment.
