DA may seek to try ‘Whitey’ Bulger and allies

Could pursue murder charges

With the federal trial of James “Whitey” Bulger now over, Suffolk County prosecutors said Tuesday that they will meet with their federal counterparts to determine whether any charges, including murder, could be brought against Bulger and his associates at the state level.

Bulger was convicted of racketeering in federal court Monday in a sweeping indictment that included 19 killings — he was found responsible for 11 of them — but he was never charged with murder in a Massachusetts court. Prosecutors will now look at whether there is any evidence to charge him or his accomplices.
