Judge denies ‘Whitey’ Bulger’s sequester request

Defense had argued to detain jurors

US District Court Judge Denise J. Casper refused Tuesday to sequester jurors in the trial of James “Whitey” Bulger, saying from the bench that she was “not inclined to inconvenience these jurors.”

Casper said that jurors had not been warned that they could be sequestered when they were picked to serve seven weeks ago, and a sequestration order without notice could interfere with any plans they may have.
