Convicted mobster James "Whitey" Bulger got into big trouble after he was discovered masturbating in his prison cell.

According to The Boston Globe, a male corrections officer caught the 85-year-old in the act while making rounds last June.

Rules at US Penitentiary Coleman II in Sumterville, Florida, prohibit inmates from engaging in any kind of sexual activity.

The officer reportedly saw the mobster touching his exposed genitals with the lights on.

Bulger, who was sentenced to two life sentences and five years for 19 counts of murder and extortion in 2011, was put into solitary confinement after the incident. He also had his email privileges taken away for 120 days, and personal property was confiscated for 30 days.

Bulger claimed such punishment was unwarranted, as he was merely applying a medicated powder to the area to treat a yeast infection.

He said he didn't go to prison medical staff out of embarrassment, and blamed the infection on poorly ventilated pants in the humid conditions.

"I ended up with a condition and I'm embarrassed to go to medical because they have female nurses over there," Bulger allegedly said, according to the Globe.

The former crime boss is standing his ground, and even volunteered for a lie detector test.

"I've never had any charges like that in my whole life," Bulger told a disciplinary hearing officer. "I'm 85 years old. My sex life is over."

Bulger was brought back into the public's attention when Johnny Depp played the mobster in last year's drama Black Mass.
