Mass. Prosecutors Mull Bulger Charges

BOSTON — Prosecutors in Massachusetts plan to meet with their federal counterparts to determine whether murder or other charges can be brought against James “Whitey” Bulger or his associates at the state level now that his federal trial is over.

A spokesman for Suffolk District Attorney Daniel Conley says the office is “always looking for evidence that can help us investigate and prosecute Suffolk County homicides.”

Bulger was convicted Monday in 11 killings. He has never been charged with murder in a Massachusetts court.

State prosecutors tell The Boston Globe that Bulger’s associates could also face trial, including one man who allegedly took part in several slayings and disposing of bodies. That man has never been charged.

Prosecutors in Florida and Oklahoma are also mulling charges against Bulger.
