Description

Lawyers for former Boston mob boss James "Whitey" Bulger are set to challenge his 2013 racketeering conviction on Monday. They contend that a judge wrongly blocked them from arguing that a U.S. official had given him immunity for his crimes. The 85-year-old Bulger was found guilty of committing or ordering 11 murders in the 1970s and 1980s. His trial highlighted his corrupt relationship with federal agents and prosecutors in Boston, who turned a blind eye to the Irish-American gangster's crimes in return for information they could use against the Italian-American Mafia. http://feeds.reuters.com/~r/Reuters/domesticNews/~3/L8zkXDHG9GE/story01.htm http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by Wochit using http://wochit.com
