Juror: Gov’t Corruption In Bulger Case Stunned Me

EASTHAM, Mass. (AP) — A juror in Boston mobster James “Whitey” Bulger’s (BUHL’-jurz) trial says testimony showed that the man once listed as the FBI’s most wanted fugitive was a “bad, bad man,” but she was still stunned by revelations of government corruption that enabled him to operate for years.

Janet Uhlar-Tinney also says failure by prosecutors to provide sufficient evidence to back allegations by former mobsters who testified against Bulger made it impossible to determine without reasonable doubt that he killed eight of 19 victims.

Uhlar-Tinney says many jurors were shaking when the verdict was handed down Monday. Bulger was convicted of 11 murders as well as other charges, from extortion to money laundering.

Uhlar-Tinney says the two-month trial was consuming and some jurors lost weight or had trouble sleeping.
