The jury in the trail of James "Whitey" Bulger faces a complex job. The four women and eight men are just concluding their third day of deliberations.

This morning, Judge Denise Casper told the jurors they should try to reach verdicts in all of the allegations contained in the racketeering charge against Bulger. That charge includes 33 acts, including the 19 murders that Bulger allegedly planned and took part in.

It is a long and sweeping indictment, which involved weeks of testimony and it may have been the source of that flurry of questions from the jury Wednesday.

Guest

Nancy Gertner, retired federal judge and Harvard Law School professor.
