Court to hear Boston mobster 'Whitey' Bulger's appeal in July

Yahoo! National News - Tue, 06/16/2015 - 00:17
Former mobster James "Whitey" Bulger will get a chance next month to argue against a 2013 jury verdict that found him guilty of committing or ordering the murders of 11 people while he ruled Boston's underworld in the 1970s and '80s. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the First Circuit on Monday said it would hear Bulger's case on July 27 in the same waterfront courthouse where a jury heard descriptions of what U.S. District Judge Denise Casper called the "unfathomable" crimes he committed while running the city's "Winter Hill" crime gang. The 85-year-old former mobster's trial exposed his corrupt relationship with the Boston office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, which for years turned a blind eye to the Irish-American gangster's crimes in exchange for tips it could use against the Italian-American Mafia, which was a higher-profile target at the time.
