This article is more than 6 years old.

Boston mobster James "Whitey" Bulger is facing the possibility of life in prison after a jury convicted him on all but one of 32 counts in his murder and racketeering trial.

But his attorneys say they will appeal his conviction, including a ruling that barred them from arguing that the government granted Bulger immunity from prosecution. Attorney Hank Brennan joined WBUR's Morning Edition to discuss the basis of their appeal.
