Larry Nassar, the former U.S. gymnastics doctor accused of molesting more than 200 women and children has been transferred to a high-security federal prison in Tucson.

The Federal Bureau of Prisons online inmate registry on Saturday showed that 54-year-old Nassar was listed as an inmate at U.S. Penitentiary Tucson - a high-security prison that houses 1,387 inmates along with a satellite minimum security facility in Pima County that houses 149 inmates, the Arizona Republic reported.

He was also sentenced in two MI courts on numerous sex crime charges. His inmate number, assigned to him shortly after his federal sentencing, is 21504-040.

Experts have said that Nassar would likely be headed to a medium-security or high-security prison.

He had already received a 40-to-175-year sentence in a neighboring MI county, and was sentenced to a 60-year federal term for child pornography convictions. He pleaded guilty to abusing patients under the guise of treatments, though later denied in a jailhouse letter and interview that his procedures were sexual.
