Larry Nassar shackled as he gets private jet to prison

Disgraced ex-Team USA doctor Larry Nassar got a private jet from Michigan to Arizona where he will begin his federal prison stint. 

The 54-year-old doctor was seen being transported without a jacket and shackled on the snowy tarmac at Detroit Metro Wayne County Airport on Friday, as he was flown to the US Penitentiary Tucson.

The flight lasted four hours and 36 minutes, and the Federal Bureau of Prisons would not comment on if it is typical for a high-profile prisoner to fly private citing 'security reasons' that they don't comment on methods of transport. 

By Saturday, Nassar was listed as an inmate at US Penitentiary Tucson. A high-security facility that houses 1,387 inmates along with a 149-inmate minimum-security satellite camp in Pima County.

Nassar was convicted of sexually abusing several girls - including US Olympic gymnasts. He was sentenced last month to 175 years in prison in Michigan after pleading guilty to sexually abusing seven girls.

But first he must serve 60 years in federal prison for his child pornography conviction.

One infamous inmate surviving a life sentence at the prison is Brian David Mitchell, the former Utah street preacher who kidnapped 14-year-old Elizabeth Smart from her home in 2002 and held her captive for nine months.

Also there for a life sentence is Louis Eppolito, the New York City police detective-turned-Mafia hit man, principally for the Lucchese crime family.

The Indianapolis Star revealed in a multiple-part investigation, published in September 2016, that the former USA Gymnastics doctor has been molesting many of the girls under his care and that the organization had been covering it up.

Since then, more than 260 women and girls have told law enforcement that Nassar sexually abused them. 

At the penitentiary, he will be given prison clothing tagged with his name and registration number, 21504-040.

The handbook says inmates can use computers but don't have internet access. 

It's currently unknown if Nassar will share a cell or be put into protective custody to avoid possible violence from other prisoners.
