Bulger lawyers due in court to update judge

Boston.com on September 3, 2012 released the following:

“BOSTON (AP) — Federal prosecutors and lawyers for mobster James ‘‘Whitey’’ Bulger are due in court this week to update a judge on the exchange of evidence in the case.

Bulger is the former leader of the notorious Winter Hill Gang and was also an FBI informant against the Mafia. He’s accused of participating in 19 murders.

The 82-year-old Bulger was a fugitive for 16 years before being captured in California last year.

His lawyers said in court last month that Bulger plans to take the stand in his own defense at his trial. They say he’ll testify about his claim that he was given immunity by someone within the U.S. Department of Justice for any crimes he committed while he was an informant.

Bulger’s lawyers and prosecutors are due in federal court for a status hearing Friday.”
