James “Whitey” Bulger Prosecution Rests

James “Whitey” Bulger

After weeks of presenting evidence in the multiple-murder/racketeering trial for the alleged longtime fugitive mob boss, the government has rested its case. I wish I’d had more time to follow the case more closely and share with the Crimcourts readers, but it’s not too late to look back. From the witness who turned up dead, to verbal outbursts in court from his former confederates, the trial has been colorful. The Defense prepares to present their case, and if the opening statements are indicative, they may not try to fight the charges that vehemently, rather to disprove allegations that Bulger was cooperating with authorities. He firmly denies being a snitch.
