BRUCETON MILLS, W.Va. (WPRI) – Notorious Boston mobster, James “Whitey” Bulger, has been moved to a new federal prison. 

The 89-year-old was transferred to the USP Hazelton in Bruceton Mills, West Virginia, a high security penitentiary with an adjacent minimum security satellite camp.

Late last week, Bulger was moved to the Federal Transfer Center in Oklahoma City from the Coleman United States Penitentiary in Sumterville, Florida.

Bulger also spent time at a prison in Arizona until he was transferred out in 2014. 

The 89-year-old was given a double life sentence after he was convicted in 2013 of taking part in 11 murders, conspiracy, and racketeering.
