McMillan is scheduled to be released in May 2046, according to the Bureau of Prisons’ inmate database and court records, but that could change if he is charged and convicted of attacking Nassar.

McMillan initially pleaded guilty in 2002 to conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine in Wyoming and was sentenced to more than 20 years in federal prison. He was due to be released next year before more than doubling his sentence after being convicted in Louisiana and Colorado prison robberies.

In October 2006, McMillan punched a prison guard who approached him during an investigation into a previous inmate assault charge in the recreation yard of the United States Penitentiary in Pollock, Louisiana, according to court records. The impact knocked the officer to the ground and left him with cuts and bruises on his face and nose. McMillan was sentenced to an additional five years in prison.

In November 2011, McMillan and another inmate attempted to kill an inmate at the largest federal prison administration facility in Florence, Colorado, according to court records. McMillan and another inmate stabbed an inmate 66 times in a prison recreation area known as “Rocky’s Alcatraz.” For this attack, they were each sentenced to an additional 20 years in prison.

McMillan arrived at Coleman Prison in Florida last December, according to records obtained by the Associated Press. Records show that he spent the past four years in a federal prison in Tucson, Arizona, after serving at federal prisons in Allenwood, Pennsylvania and a prison adjacent to Supermax Prison in Colorado.

Nassar was transferred from Tucson Prison to Coleman in August 2018. His attorneys said Nassar was assaulted within hours of being held as a civilian in Arizona State Penitentiary.
