The following is a statement from lawyer J.W. Carney Jr. on the death of James “Whitey” Bulger:

“I was proud to be appointed by the Federal Court to represent James Bulger.

He was sentenced to life in prison, but as a result of decisions by the Federal Bureau of Prisons, that sentence has been changed to the death penalty.

I’ll have no further comment.”
