Bulger Juror Says Tensions Were High During Case

Even though the names of the jurors who decided “Whitey” Bulger’s fate won’t be officially released until Friday, one juror is already commenting on what went on behind the scenes. 

Scott Hotyckey  tells WCVB that there were moments of high tension among the jurors, with some wanting to be removed from the panel while they discussed the verdict.  Hotyckey says the mountain of evidence presented against Bulger was also problematic for some jurors, as they were unable to remember details that caused them to doubt specific charges.

However, Hotyckey says he had no doubts about Bulger’s guilt, saying he was not swayed by defense arguments blaming the FBI.  The 83-year-old Bulger convicted yesterday on a host of federal racketeering and murder charges.
