Bulger wants to keep Stanley Cup ring

Notorious Boston gangster James “Whitey” Bulger won’t fight to keep $822,000 that was found stashed in the walls of his Santa Monica, Calif., apartment when he was finally arrested in 2011. But he will keep a Stanley Cup ring that someone gave him as a gift, according to court documents.

Bulger made the concession in a court document released today even as a jury continued to deliberate in the sweeping federal racketeering case against him.
