Jurors To Hear Bulger Prison Calls 06:57

This article is more than 6 years old.

Jurors in the federal trial of Boston mobster James "Whitey" Bulger could hear from Bulger himself this week.

Prosecutors plan to play recorded phone conversations from Bulger's time at the Plymouth County Correctional Facility since his capture in 2011. Jurors are also expected to hear from several former drug dealers who claim Bulger extorted money from them.

But first, the defense will resume its cross-examination of a corrupt FBI supervisor who admits taking bribes from Bulger.

WBUR's David Boeri previews this week's testimony.
