Sources familiar with the situation have stated that Nassar’s condition is currently stable. The Bureau of Prisons confirmed that an inmate was assaulted at the United States Penitentiary Coleman II in Florida, a high-security federal facility, and assured that no other individuals were harmed.

Authorities have identified one suspect, another inmate, and are reviewing video footage and other evidence to determine if there were any additional participants involved in the attack, as disclosed by a source.

An insider familiar with the investigation revealed that the staff members assigned to guard Nassar were working overtime. This was attributed, in part, to staffing shortages within the Bureau of Prisons.

According to a source acquainted with the matter, Nassar was held in a unit specifically designated for inmates convicted of sexual assault.

Larry Nassar, who was found guilty of state and federal charges related to the sexual assault of USA Gymnastics team members, is currently serving his lengthy prison sentences at USP Coleman.
