Sequester jury, Bulger defense lawyers urge

James “Whitey” Bulger wants the jury who will decide his fate to be sequestered when they begin deliberating whether he is guilty of the sweeping racketeering indictment he faces, which includes allegations he participated in 19 murders.

Defense attorneys for Bulger filed the motion late Sunday night, setting the stage for the issue to be raised when his US District Court trial resumes on Monday and the defense begins presenting witnesses.
