As 2012 comes to an end, longtime Boston fugitive James "Whitey" Bulger remains where he has been all year long: confined in the Plymouth County Correctional Center, awaiting federal trial on murder and racketeering charges.

It's been a frustrating year for the families of the alleged victims, who want to see Bulger tried. It's also been a frustrating year for the Bulger's defense team, which has won a few postponements but has also encountered some setbacks in court.

WBUR's David Boeri spoke with Bob Oakes on Morning Edition about where the case stands.

This program aired on December 27, 2012.
