Day 10


James Marra, an agent with the US Department of Justice office of the inspector general, acknowledged under questioning Tuesday that Bulger never signed a form or made any pledge indicating he was an informant, as defense lawyers argued that Bulger did not know he had an FBI informant file. Jurors also heard from families of alleged Bulger victims Richard Castucci, Thomas King, and Francis “Buddy” Leonard, who described how they learned of the deaths.

Expected Wednesday

Jurors will again hear from Marra, as Bulger’s lawyers question the authenticity of the statements contained in Bulger’s FBI informant file and whether they were fabricated by Bulger’s corrupt handler, John J. Connolly Jr. Jurors could also hear from John Morris, a corrupt FBI supervisor who admitted to pocketing bribes from Bulger and Stephen “The Rifleman” Flemmi and leaking information to them in the 1980s. Morris was never jailed; he was granted immunity from prosecution in exchange for his cooperation.
