SENTENCED: 'Whitey' Bulger Gets 2 Life Terms on Racketeering, Murder Charges
A Boston judge sentenced James "Whitey" Bulger to two life terms plus five years behind bars for the murder of 11 people, as well as additional racketeering charges.
Below is more from FoxNews.com:
Judge Denise Casper said before the sentencing that that the depravity of his crimes is "almost unfathomable". She also called Bulger's crimes "heinous" and "all about money."
Bulger is looked directly at her and listened intently as she made the remarks.
The sentencing hearing ended a sordid chapter in Boston history featuring FBI and government corruption that helped Bulger continue a reign of terror for decades and flee the city just ahead of an indictment.
Bulger was a fugitive for more than 16 years until he was captured in Santa Monica, Calif., in 2011.
