The defense, Whitey is represented by lawyers Hank Brennan 700-467-1-697x340 and James Budreau,  are ready with an appeals court presented this past thursday to overturn Whitey’s conviction. Whitey is in fact 84 years.

The case of Whitey Bulger whitey whitey 1 whitey 3 whitey 4 whitey 5 whitey 6 whitey 7 whitey 8 is of course pretty heavy, but according to the attorneys something can be done for helping hin.

What exactly?

In the 201 pages of this file of appeal of Whitey’s conviction, attorneys remarked how, according to them, Whitey didn’t get a fair trial because the judge refused to let him tell jurors that many years ago someone had promised him a total immunity for all the possible crimes he could have committed.

According to the attorneys this lack of auto-defense because the judge didn’t permit him to say that to the jurors, deprived constitutionally Whitey to introduce to the court an effective defense and “stripped him of his right to testify about how he was able to avoid prosecution for almost twenty-five years” wrote the attorneys. This file has been sent to the US Court of Appeals for the First Circuit.

It was a federal prosecutors, continues the attorneys in their file,  now deceased who had promised him a total immunity for all possible crimes, of course murder including.

The federal prosecutor said this to Whitey was Jeremiah T.O’Sullivan. He had promised Whitey’s total immunity, because Whitey promised him of protecting him all his life.

Of course, in a way Whitey felt he could act with freedom because constantly protected.

Casper anyway barred the immunity defense and for various reasons. First: there wasn’t any written documentation about this exchange of favors between the two. Just an assertion. Second: even if O’Sullivan had said that and promised it, he hadn’t any authority to saying or doing that.

O’Sullivan was the head of the New England Organized Crime Strike Force, and he died in 2009.

Attorneys insisted that there was this authority for saying or doing that.

Former assistant US attorney Brian T.Kelly, took part of the team prosecuted Whitey Bulger. He added in many
occasions that various judges had offered to Whitey the opportunity to raise an immunity defense prior to trial. So not just one. After all added Brian T.Kelly, Whitey couldn’t think of have the license for killing or other kind of immunity of this sort. Kelly thinks he had failed to take the opportunity to present it.

Attorneys added: “The court ruled that the defense could not raise the immunity defense at trial in any form, including the defendant’s own testimony at trial. This error effected the fundamental fairness of Mr. Bulger’s trial and his convictions should be automatically reversed as a result.”

Jimmy Whitey Bulger was found guilty of 11 murders, including the strangulation of a woman knew too much (I will analyze the various murders very soon) and other crimes like drug trafficking.

Sure one of maybe the most delicate points taken in exam by the prosecutors and attorneys was the relationship between the F.B.I. and Jimmy Whitey Bulger.

For the prosecutors, there was a strong relationship between this governative very important institution and Whitey.
Lot of corruption, a lot of crimes had also seen involved the F.B.I. The facto according to the prosecutors Whitey was a very important informants of the F.B.I. At the same time being the boss of the irish mob a great contradiction. In general in fact, informations of the F.B.I. are little fishes, able to bring the agents to the biggest fishes.

According Bulger’s attorneys it was absolutely false he was an informant. John J.Connolly Jr. to the defense had fabricated Bulger’s informants file for very other purposes.

Sure “The Rifleman” Flemmi haven’t been of great help for Whitey. He testified that yes, they were two informants of the F.B.I. and not from a short period and that they had paid something like 240.000 dollars to Connolly during the years.
The Rifleman Flemmi added that Connolly constantly informed them when some other informants weren’t cooperating for them asking to them of killing various people.

The defense so talked about the important “Systemic corruption existing in the Usa during that period”. Whitey to the defense “Intended to show the systemic corruption existed in the federal government during the 1970s through 1990s and the political and institutional motivations that led Jeremiah O’Sullivan and the Strike Force to provide immunity to James Bulger.”

Attorneys point their finger to the credibility of institution talking of “Unprecedented deals with organized crime figures and murderers in an attempt to insulate themselves from civil liability and cover up their practices.”
