An elderly man was placed in solitary confinement after being caught pleasuring himself in middle of the night.

James “Whitey” Bulger of Boston, Massachusetts, was sentenced to life in prison after being convicted of 11 murders, which were carried out while he was the boss of a crime family.

Bulger, who was jailed in Sumterville, Florida, was handed a harsh punishment after a prison guard allegedly caught him pleasuring himself with the lights on in his jail cell.

Bulger claims that he was set up by the prison guard. He said that he was applying medicated powder to his private parts about 3:00 a.m.

However, the officer told a disciplinary committee that Bulger broke the prison rules by pleasuring himself. Prison regulations prohibit any sexual activity by inmates.

Bulger attempted but failed to defend himself before the disciplinary commission. He told the disciplinary commissions: “I’m 85 years old. My sex life is over.”

Bulger was put into solitary confinement for 30 days. They revoked his commissary and email privileges for 120 days, and confiscated his personal property for 30 days.
