Larry Nassar has some new — and very notorious — neighbors.
The sicko sports doc was recently transferred to the Florida prison USP Coleman II, which is home to some of the nation’s most infamous criminals.
Boston mob boss James “Whitey” Bulger is currently locked up there, along with al-Qaeda sympathizer-turned-attempted suicide bomber Amine El Khalifi and Texas tycoon Robert Allen Stanford, who was convicted of running a $7 billion Ponzi scheme in 2012.
Some of the penitentiary’s previous inmates include corrupt NYPD detective Stephen Caracappa — who died last year — and Gabul Abdullah Ali, one of the five Somali pirates who attacked the USS Nicholas off the coast of Africa in 2010.
Native American activist Leonard Peltier, who was convicted in the killings of two FBI agents during a 1975 shootout in South Dakota, also spent some time at the high-security facility.
Nassar, 55, is currently being held at USP Coleman II on child pornography charges.
He is scheduled to be released in March 2069, according to the Federal Bureau of Prisons.
Once his sentence is up, Nassar will still have to concurrently serve another 40 to 175 years on seven counts of child sex abuse — and 40 to 125 years on three more counts.
The former Michigan State University and USA Gymnastics team doctor is accused of abusing over 265 women, whom he treated over a span of more than two decades.
USP Coleman has been described has a “so-called special needs prison” — where informants, former cops, ex-gang members, sex offenders and other inmates who are more likely to be attacked or killed on account of their crimes are supposed to feel safe.
“At regular BOP lockups, these types of men are in danger of being beaten, stabbed, or strangled to death,” explained former prisoner Nate Lindell in a 2016 essay for The Marshall Project.
The ex-inmate recalled how Bulger, who is serving two life sentences, was known to get pushed around the “Yard” in a wheelchair by an “ex-Aryan Brotherhood member with a bald, tattooed head” and “toothless mouth.”
“When I first saw Whitey, I didn’t realize he was Whitey,” Lindell said. “He looked like a pale, white-haired geezer in a wheelchair. Probably a chomo (child molester), I thought. Couldn’t see him robbing a bank, killing people, or any other respectable crime.”
The 88-year-old crime boss was transferred to the Coleman complex in 2014 from a high-security prison in Tucson, Ariz., amid rumors of an inappropriate relationship with a female psychologist. He reportedly traded autographed photos of himself in exchange for correspondence with his girlfriend.
Asked about prison life at Coleman in a 2015 letter, Bulger told high-school students: ‘Advice is a cheap commodity…Some seek it from me about crime..I know only one thing for sure — if you want to make crime pay — ‘Go to Law School.’”
