Lengthy Closing Arguments In Store at Bulger Trial

Closing arguments are underway in reputed Boston ganster James “Whitey” Bulger’s racketeering trial.

After two months of testimony, prosecutor Fred Wyshak started presenting his closing arguments Monday morning.

Wyshak gets 2 hours and 45 minutes for his arguments before the defense gets to present its case. Then Wyshak gets 30 more minutes for rebuttal.

He told jurors that Bulger was “one of the most vicious, violent and calculating criminals ever to walk the streets of Boston.”

Bulger fled Boston in 1994. He was one of the nation’s most-wanted fugitives until he was captured in Santa Monica, Calif., in 2011.

He’s pleaded not guilty to participating in 19 murders, laundering money and committing weapons offenses and other crimes.
