    SUMTERVILLE, Fla. - James 'Whitey' Bulger spent time in solitary confinement last summer after breaking the prison's rule about sexual activity, according to reports.

    Documents obtained by the Globe reveal Bulger was allegedly caught by a guard touching himself in a sexual manner, in his cell, with the lights on.

    Prison regulation prohibits any sexual activity by inmates and put him in solitary confinement for 30 days. They also halted his commissary and email privileges for 120 days and confiscated his personal property for 30 days. 

    When confronted about it, Bulger said he was applying medicated powder for an "embarrassing medical issue." When asked why he had the lights on, Bulger told the guard he always keeps them on. He said it's a side effect after those alleged LSD prison experiments in the 50's  when he was serving time in Georgia.

    “I’m 85 years old. My sex life is over," Bulger reportedly said. 

    Bulger said he had been "set-up" by the corrections officer. He reportedly appealed the sanction, but he has already served the punishment.
