Rejected the request of new trial for James Bulger

Posted in Johnny Depp, whitey bulger by Anna Maria Polidori on March 5, 2016

It’s a straining moment this one for “Whitey” Bulger. In isolation in jail because accused of violating this time a regulation prohibiting sexual activity he is in confinement for 30 days. At the same time a Federal appeals as revealed by the Boston  10929555_421228288050820_5264084193313585513_nGlobe rejected his request for a new trial.

Bulger said that his trial of 2013 was a “sham”.

In 49 pages US Court of Appeals for the First Circuit confirmed that Bulger got a fair trial. “None of the complained-of conduct on the court or government’s part warrant reversal of his conviction” wrote the Judges.

It’s a story of immunity this one.

Bulger sustains that the trial violated constitutional rights because he couldn’t tell jurors that a dead (now) federal prosecutor had promised him a complete immunity for all possible kind of crimes. Yes murder as well according to Bulger.

Judges said: “Bulger provided no evidentiary support, written or otherwise, for this claim and declined the court’s invitation for an evidentiary hearing.”

Bulger didn’t testify during his trial but judges add: “He was not actually barred from taking the stand to offer pertinent and admissible testimony, and there is no constitutional right to introduce irrelevant evidence.”

Patricia Donahue the widow of Michael Donahue, a very good and honest man killed with Halloran close to a bar, while they were returning home is satisfied.

She told to the Boston Globe: “I couldn’t be happier. I think it’s absolutely wonderful.”

Kelly one of the prosecutors happy for the result added that the case of Bulger has been a case of “Serious public corruption and one can only hope something like this never happens again”.

Bulger now can just hope in a positive answer from the Supreme Court if he wants to give a try.

Not any comment from the staff of attorneys of Bulger. James Bulger’s brother, Will Bulger didn’t want to add anything else to the Boston Globe.
