Bulger Being Blamed for Others’ Crimes, Lawyer Tells Jury

James “Whitey” Bulger, the former fugitive who ran a criminal gang in South Boston from the 1970s to the early 1990s, was found guilty in a racketeering and murder conspiracy by a federal court jury.

Bulger, 83, who was captured in 2011 in Santa Monica, California, after hiding from authorities for 16 years, was convicted today by a jury in Boston. He faces spending the rest of his life in prison.
