Prosecutors pledge to give Bulger money to victims

Federal prosecutors pledged Friday to give all of James “Whitey” Bulger’s money to his victims if a judge grants their request for a $25.2 million forfeiture judgment that will allow the government to seize the gangster’s current assets and profits he might make in the future.

“The government will seek to return assets currently owned by the Defendant (Bulger), and assets of the Defendant that may be recovered in the future, to the innocent victims in this case,” Assistant US Attorney Mary B. Murrane wrote in a motion filed in US District Court in response to concerns by some of the victims’ families that the government would keep all of Bulger’s money.
